JoeCo BlackBox BBR1-A 24-Track Recorder

The JoeCo BlackBox BBR1-A 24-Track Recorder features an ADAT Optical I/O and is specifically designed for audio acquisition and capturing live performance. Developed to solve the inherent problems of working with computer-based systems in a live environment, it provides engineers with a computer-free, high-quality solution for live multi-channel audio capture.

The JoeCo BlackBox BBR1-A 24-Track Recorder brings the benefits of multi-track audio capture with the Blackbox Recorder to digital desks and D-A converters which are equipped with Lightpipe (TOSlink) inputs and outputs. Three 8-channel Lightpipe inputs can be connected from the mixer while three Lightpipe outputs can return the signals back to the mixer. All other Blackbox multi-track recorder features remain unchanged, and the full analogue I/O capability of the standard BBR1 is still available for situations where the Lightpipe interface is not suitable. The JoeCo BlackBox BBR1-A is designed and built to exacting standards with rugged construction and a suite of unique features. The choice of professional users, the JoeCo BlackBox BBR1-A 24-Track Recorder is the solution the professional audio industry chooses and trusts.

Note: Due to limitations in the Lightpipe format, use of this option restricts 24-track recording to single speed sample rates (44.1kHz and 48kHz). At double sample rates the unit employs the SMUXII protocol reducing the I/O count to 12 channels.

What We Think

"JoeCo BLACKBOX RECORDERS will help keep you from shortening your lifespan due to the extreme toll of the stress associated with live recording. That sounds extreme - doesn't it? Well, it's actually a pretty realistic way to look at it - ESPECIALLY if you have ever tried to multi-track record a show on your own without a limitless budget. Look, I have dealt with lugging a TON of gear out to live venues in order to capture the show in multi-track. Even with some of the best of gear for the studio setting, if it is having to interface with a laptop (even if it is 'audio-optimized', or whatever etc), then chances are you are playing the serious game of 'Reverse-Russian-Roulette' where only ONE chamber is empty. Any number of things can go wrong - and with computers, when it goes wrong... there goes the frickin' show, and all your hard work has been for nothing. And there is nothing worse than having to explain to the band that the computer took a dump during the recording... and THEN having to pack up all that extra gear and lug it out to the car for nothing. If you were hired for the gig, then you lose money and very likely, you'll lose the future work. That in and of itself should make the BlackBox your first priority to acquire for live recordings and archiving. "And if none of that is reason enough, then I'll tell you this - Your recordings will come out better with the BlackBox because you can FOCUS on the job of getting your microphones placed properly and your levels set to handle unexpected peaks, etc. Otherwise, you're running around like crazy doing that job AND trying to troubleshoot why your driver isn't initializing for whatever reason. "With all of the available I/O configurations available, there is a JoeCo BLACKBOX to meet your needs. Give us a call and we can help you configure the system that is right for your needs."
