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.
BLACKBOX RECORDER was designed in collaboration with Sintefex Audio, who developed the custom hardware and software to deliver this unique performance in a stand-alone product. Pictured is Joe Bull, Managing Director of JoeCo Ltd, after receiving the award at PLASA, September 2009.
|BBR Wins Resolution Award for Best Recorder||BLACKBOX RECORDERS capture George Michael|
Readers voted in the the JoeCo BLACKBOX RECORDER as the Best Recorder in the 2010 Reader Poll.
The Resolution Awards recognise quality and innovation in professional audio and BLACKBOX RECORDER won in the face of stiff competition.
Sintefex is pleased to be part of the success of the Joeco BLACKBOX RECORDER as the supplier of the hardware and software implementation of this award winning product.
A total of eight JoeCo BlackBox BBR64-MADI recorders, designed in a joint venture between JoeCo and Sintefex Audio, were used on the recent George Michael Symphonica Tour to capture 2x256 channels of audio in what was potentially one of the largest live recording projects to date.
In addition to their nightly recording function, and the additional capture of soundchecks, the BlackBoxes were also used in Virtual Soundcheck mode for system set-ups, replaying material from previous shows to help balance and EQ the PA system at each venue.
At the Royal Opera House, four further BBR64-MADI units were connected to an additional DiGiCo console, generating broadcast mixes for this particular show. As well as running an extra 256-channel record, the BlackBox recorders also acted as a playback engine for making adjustments to the broadcast mix.
The BlackBox BBR64-MADI Recorders were supplied by Wigwam Acoustics Ltd (www.wigwamacoustics.co.uk) and JoeCo Ltd. Image used by kind permisssion.
