JoeCo BlackBox Recorder
BBR1B with Balanced analogue i/o
In the same manner as the Unbalanced model, the BBR1B loops the inputs directly to the outputs via relays when in record or stop so that even a power failure on the BBR cannot affect the audio through the PA. Other BlackBox Recorder features remain unchanged.
The Balanced i/o interface uses high quality balancing receivers and transmitters and has been designed specifically for the BLACKBOX RECORDER to be fully transparent.
BBR1D with AES/EBU digital i/o
The AES/EBU interfaces can operate at up to 96kHz and conform to the AES standard (AES-3:2003). It is also still possible to chain multiple BBR1D units together to make larger multitrack recordings.
BBR1U with Unbalanced analogue i/o
In this model, eight insert returns are also brought out to TRS jacks on the rear of the unit, allowing additional outboard equipment to be plugged into insert points as required.
The recorder sports both coaxial and optical MADI connections for interfacing with any MADI equipped console or other equipment. Additionally, the BBR64-MADI caters for 56-channel legacy MADI and can record a further 8 channels of analogue (balanced line in) for capturing the audience reaction or general ambience.
The BBR64-MADI will lock to or generate word clock, as well as locking to the received MADI data stream. The MADI input is echoed direct to the output to ease system integration. In addition to the PFL bus providing both hi-resolution metering and headphone monitoring, an additional “mix” feature has been added to the headphone output.
The BBR64-DANTE connects to any Dante™-enabled device from a range of console and converter manufacturers including Allen&Heath, Yamaha, MIDAS, DiGiCo and Focusrite to name but a few. Designed to support standard network components and switches, it can also record 8 channels of analogue (balanced line in) alongside 56 channels of Dante for capturing audience and ambience.
The BBR64-DANTE will lock to or generate word clock, as well as locking to the incoming Dante audio stream. In addition to the PFL bus providing both hi-resolution metering and headphone monitoring, an additional “mix” feature has been added to the headphone output.
