24-track 24-bit/96kHz recorder for live use 15/06/09
No flash plug
If you saw the piece we did at this years NAMM show, the JoeCo Black Box Recorder, may have taken your fancy - it being all black and shiny and lovely and that. As well as being a solution for recording 24 channels straight from the FOH desk from a gig in full 24-bit 96kHz resolution audio in BWF format to standard USB drives - which can then be plugged stright into the DAW of your choice for mix or edit. The unit can be chained together with up to three other boxes to give you a full 96 channels of time stamped audio recording with the signal taken striaght from the mixer insert points.
A handy device indeed - with only a few seconds boot up time and dead simple operation - even a sound engineer can use it (joke!).
Since then, relays have been added so that if the unit is powered off for any reason, the audio signal will still pass through the device so the show can continue uninterrupted.
Joe Bull, MD tells us that it should be available very soon, possibly as early as the end of this month - so get your orders in, I suspect it will be in demand.
Pricing expected to be in the region of Â£1740 +VAT
