CEntrance describes the PortCaster as a “handheld device [that] fills an important gap for podcasters and radio program hosts who need to add music, effects, and either a local or a remote call-in guest to their ‘talk radio’ -style show.”
The company says that the PortCaster uses the company’s Jasmine mic preamps. Features include 48 V phantom power, smartphone input, limiters, monitor controls and an aluminum case. Very useful for radio stations is the mix-minus function. It will work with Android, iOS, Mac, Windows laptops, phones and tablets.
There will be three models with different optional features such as an SD card-based 24-bit/48 kHz digital recorder and an onboard rechargeable battery.
