UK-based development company JoeCo Ltd. has announced the shipment of its first Blackbox Recorder units.

The 19-inch, 1U rack-mounted recorder is designed to capture multi-track live audio (24 tracks at up to 24 Bit/96kHz) without the need to have a laptop or Digital Audio Workstation at the performance.

The Blackbox Recorder attaches to the insert points of a live mixing console and records in industry-standard Broadcast WAV format onto a regular USB2, FAT32 formatted drive (a 500 GByte drive will store approximately 20 hours of 24-track material at 24 Bit / 96kHz and over 40 hours at 48kHz).

The Blackbox Recorder's outputs are fed back to the console's insert returns, enabling any console to have a Virtual Sound Check facility. Eight insert returns are also brought out to TRS jacks on the rear of the unit, allowing additional outboard processors to be plugged into insert points as required.

The Blackbox Recorder can be installed at Front of House (or at the stage box) and operated by the FOH engineer. Ready to record just 10 seconds after power-up, according to JoeCo, its simple user interface and screen display enable the engineer to focus on the live mix, without additional distractions.

A number of "fail safe" features are built in to ensure secure audio capture and uninterrupted signal flow at all times, the company says. For live recordings requiring more than 24 channels, up to four Blackbox Recorder units can be linked together. Slave units take their commands from the Master, ensuring that all recordings are synchronous, sample accurate and start on the same sample, JoeCo says.

After recording a performance, the hard drive can be plugged directly into a Mac- or PC-based DAW for editing and mixing, without the need for any file conversion or copying.

Pricing & Availability
MSRP for the JoeCo Blackbox Recorder is USD 2495.00 (ex sales tax).
