JoeCo Limited in Cambridge, UK, announces a major software update for its award-winning BlackBox Recorder series. Version 2.2 contains enhancements to the underlying bespoke operating system alongside improved methods of displaying critical information to the user while maintaining the conceptual simplicity of the user interface.

These new features are designed to give the user greater working efficiency, and many result from the development of the BlackBox BBR64-MADI and Dante Recorders. Simple interface changes range from clarifying clock sources to flashing the transport controls while an operation is pending. The Pre Fade Listen system, introduced in the BBR64-MADI development, now allows more rapid sweep through the channels with a quick return to "mix" output.

JoeCo reports that it's also faster to enter Record and to finalize Broadcast WAV files; timecode reading is quicker and more accurate; master/slave performance has been enhanced; and further support has been added for particular drive types. Additionally, the software now runs background checks on the drive to create a more accurate map of free space to further speed entering record.

The Player software add-on has taken advantage of improvements to triggering and now also supports v0 BWF files, which some older DAWs still produce. These and more enhancements are encapsulated in an upgraded field update manager.

The new V. 2.2 software update can be downloaded free of charge from the End User area of the JoeCo Website at www.joeco.co.uk.
