JoeCo Ltd. in Cambridge, UK, is now shipping the new BBR64-MADI version of the BlackBox Recorder ($TBA). Designed for audio acquisition and capturing live performance, the single-rackspace recorder enables users to capture multichannel audio to directly to a USB 2 drive, in Broadcast WAV format, without the need for a computer.

Based on JoeCo's BlackBox Recorder design, the BBR64-MADI records and replays up to 64 channels of MADI data. The recorder can capture the full 64 channels at standard sample rates, and also accommodate double sample rate MADI recording of up to 96 kHz. The unit has both coaxial and optical MADI connections for interfacing with any MADI equipped console or other equipment. Additionally, it allows for 56-channel legacy MADI and can record an additional eight channels of analog (balanced line in) for capturing audience reaction or general ambience.

The BBR64-MADI will lock to or generate word clock, as well as lock to the MADI data stream it receives. The MADI input can be echoed directly to the output to ease system integration. Individual channels, or pairs of channels, can be monitored on a PFL bus providing both high-resolution metering and headphone monitoring.

Designed for both ease of use and convenience in the live recording environment, the BBR64-MADI also includes a number of BlackBox Recorder "standard" safety features, such as the Safe 'n' Sound Record Recovery that will recover files even if the power fails during recording.
