The BLACKBOX RECORDER has been designed specifically to take the hassle out of creating top quality multitrack recordings. It uses ordinary USB2 drives as its media that can be easily replayed in the auditorium or taken back to remix on your Digital Audio Workstation. Great for small bands to get more gigs or analyse their performances or for major acts to create material for archive purposes or future releases.
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.
