JoeCo BlackBox BBR64-MADI 64-Track Recorder Details

The JoeCo Blackbox BBR64-MADI Recorder is based on the award-winning, tried and tested BlackBox Recorder design. However, rather than being limited to recording 24 channels of audio, the BBR64-MADI is designed to record and replay up to 64 channels of MADI data.

Developed to solve the inherent problems of working with computer-based systems in a live performance environment, the BlackBox Recorder provides engineers with a computer-free, high-quality solution for multi-channel live audio capture. The BlackBox BBR64-MADI Recorder can capture the full 64 channels of MADI data at standard sample rates directly to Broadcast WAV files on an external USB2 drive, and yet only occupies one unit of rack space! Double sample rate MADI recording (up to 96kHz) is also accommodated. 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. Individual channels or pairs of channels can be monitored on an internal PFL bus providing both hi-resolution metering and headphone output.

The recorder is designed to be supremely simple to use, requiring just the input and output connections, power and a USB drive before pressing the RECORD button. A full colour LCD screen and striking LED displays show all the information the recording engineer needs in order to know whatâ??s happening.

The BBR64-MADI includes numerous safety features, inherited from the original BlackBox Recorder, to keep your recording as secure as possible. Safe'n'Sound Record Recovery will recover files even if the power fails in the middle of a recording.
