The JoeCo BlackBox BBP1-A 24-Track Player is an innovative backing track player for live performance that supports playback of up to 24 digital audio stems at up to 24-bit, 96kHz resolution. This version is equipped with 24 channels of Lightpipe digital I/O, and designed for use with mixing consoles that support Lightpipe. Unbalanced analogue I/O functionality is also available for situations where Lightpipe is not suitable.

When you require mission-critical playback that absolutely cannot fail, you can rely on JoeCo’s Blackbox Multi-Channel Player. This multi-channel player – available in a variety of formats – provides a solution for live performance playback in a compact 1U rack-mounted package. Specifically designed to replay backing tracks or multiple surround stems for live shows and themed entertainment, it can replay up to 64 channels of high quality audio at up to 24bit/96kHz. The Blackbox Player can be triggered using timecode, a footswitch or QWERTY keyboard, or it can be controlled via MIDI commands, giving the live engineer, installation sound designer, musical director or artist full control of the show at all times.

Proven technology
Based on the proven technology of the award-winning BlackBox Recorder, the BlackBox Player provides an innovative solution to live performance playback in a compact 1U rack-mounted package. Audio files can be stored on a standard USB2 drive, or Flash RAM drive. Simple playlists automatically cue up the next song ready for instantaneous replay and multiple playlists can be stored ready for different shows or performances. Integrated safety features, including a built-in automated fail-over mechanism, ensure that the BlackBox Player can meet the all-important "show must go on" criteria. Multi-channel playback is important both for surround sound applications and because it allows the live engineer to compensate for the acoustics of the venue, or audience generated noise during the performance.
