Dangerous Music today shipped D-Box, their highly anticipated 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 who require exceptional audio quality.
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.
“As the digital recording environment continues to evolve we at Dangerous responded to the need for a high-quality multi-function product that is both compact and affordable to all DAW users,” says Bob Muller, Dangerous Music’s Founder and Co-owner. “More and more records are being recorded and mixed in remote or temporary locations with mobile DAW rigs. Engineers in these situations need reliable, flexible gear with audio quality they can trust to deliver the sonic goods while not getting in the way of the artistic flow. 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 and mixing. We’ve solved those problems in a very integrated way, with no sonic compromise and within a very small footprint.”
