Dangerous Music announced D-Box, a new multi-purpose hardware product for DAW users. The new unit was designed for the compact or mobile environment and the modern workflow of computer musicians and audio professionals on the go.
The 1U rack-mount box combines 8-channels of the world-renowned Dangerous Music analog summing technology and a collection of important features garnered from other Dangerous products. The D-Box has an integrated programmable monitor control section with analog and digital inputs, on board 24 bit/96KHz, D-to-A converter, talkback, dual headphone amps, speaker switcher and more.
“More and more records are being recorded and mixed in remote or temporary locations with mobile DAW rigs, and a lot of control room setups are tight,” says Bob Muller, Dangerous Music’s Founder and Co-owner. “From artist and industry feedback we have noticed a definite need for a high-quality multi-function product that is also compact and affordable to all DAW based musicians and engineers.
In the D-Box we combine our signature analog summing section with what we feel are some other useful capabilities that we’ve developed in our other products, like the Monitor ST. Most computer musicians struggle with controlling monitors, smooth switching between analog and digital inputs and with headphone cues when tracking. We’ve solved those problems in a very integrated way, and with a very small footprint.”
The Dangerous Music D-Box is scheduled to be available in Q1 2007 from select dealers in the USA and worldwide. The D-Box has been designed with quality at its core and yet it is targeted to sell for under $1400 (US).
