JoeCo Blackbox Recorder - AES '09

The JoeCo Baclbox Recorder is an ingenious simplistic recording tool that allows 24-channel simultaneous recording to an inexpensive, virtually disposable external hard drive, which can immediately be used with any DAW after the live recording to import (drag-and-drop) the live recorded audio tracks into your mixing DAW workstation be it ProTools, Logic, Cakewalk, Digital Performer, etc. Designed to attach to the inserts of any live mixing console, the JoeCo BLACKBOX RECORDER captures up to 24 tracks of live audio at 24 Bit / 96kHz, without the need to have a computer at the performance. Audio is recorded 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). By feeding back the BLACKBOX RECORDER's outputs to the console's insert returns, any console is enabled to have a Virtual Sound Check facility. It is also possible to connect the BLACKBOX RECORDER to direct or group outs from the console. Created specifically for the live market, a number of fail-safe features are built into the BLACKBOX RECORDER ensuring secure audio capture and uninterrupted signal flow throughout a performance. After recording, the hard drive can be plugged directly into any Mac- or PC-based Digital Audio Workstation for editing, remixing and repurposing, without the need for any file conversion or copying. For larger performances, up to four BLACKBOX RECORDER units can be chained, enabling the simultaneous capture of up to 96 channels of multi-track audio.

Manufacturer's Description from Joeco

The BLACKBOX RECORDER is a novel concept in live recording technology - a multi-track for the 21st century. it is no longer necessary to dismantle your home studio or recording studio to take a complete Digital Audio Workstation into a live venue to capture your live performance.

The BLACKBOX RECORDER plugs into any standard live mixing console via the normal insert points and not only allows for the capture of the performance but also will record the sound check to help set the foldback mixes and allow the performers to hear the live mix for themselves. In difficult acoustic spaces it also lets the sound engineer achieve the best balance without exhausting the band with endless rehearsals before the gig.

The BLACKBOX RECORDER provides 24 tracks of audio recording directly onto a removable USB2 disk drive that can be immediately plugged into your Digital Audio Workstation after the gig.

Recording the audio at up to 96kHz and at 24 bit resolution into standard Broadcast Wave (BWAV) files on a standard FAT32 formatted drive allows the user to replay the material on any workstation. Just unplug the disk from the back of the BLACKBOX RECORDER and plug it into your workstation as an external disk. No copying or reassembling your studio is required and you have every mixer input recorded and available to create the perfect live remix.

For really large multi-track recordings, multiple BLACKBOX RECORDER units can be chained together and operated from a single control surface.

The unit has been designed to be as simple as possible to operate, recognising that during a live performance the sound engineer will naturally need to concentrate on the sound for the audience and the performers.

Consequently, having connected up the unit to the desk the BBR1 defaults to all tracks being armed ready for record; just pressing Record will start the recording. If the record button is pressed again whilst in record, the BLACKBOX RECORDER will automatically start a new recording so that each song can be easily identified later. To end a recording requires the STOP button to be held for 2 seconds to ensure that the recording cannot be stopped accidentally.

A foot switch input is also provided and can be set up to duplicate the record button function so that the engineer doesn't even have to move away from the console.
