JoeCos previews Dante-enabled Blackbox recorder

Published:

BlackBox manufacturer JoeCo recently previewed a Dante-enabled version of its 24-track recorder, offering the first fruits of the company’s previously announced working relationship with networking specialist Audinate.

The agreement between the two parties will see Dante networking technology incorporated, under licence, into a range of BlackBox Recorder products. A recent demonstration saw a BlackBox Player used to feed a BlackBox Recorder linked to a Yamaha LS9 console incorporating the MY16-AUD Dante card. The manufactuer is hoping that the integration of Dante networking into its products will aid its growth into new markets including broadcast, film and TV.

Meanwhile, the BlackBox Recorder itself has released a software update, bringing it to v2.1. Available for download from the JoeCo website, the update includes a new safety feature named Safe ‘n’ Sound, which is designed to recover audio files after an accidental loss of power. Once power is re-applied to the unit, the new function analyses the disk and performs all the necessary recovery procedures without requiring user intervention.

Among other additions is a disk scan feature which automatically scans a drive when first connected to the BBR to ensure that free space and first available cluster fields in the File Allocation Table (FAT) are correctly calculated, recalculated, or repaired. For long recordings, the song number and song time display are now automatically adjusted to reflect the automatic splits when the BBR records over a 1G, 2G or 4G boundary. For large-scale recordings involving 48 tracks or more, the master/slave setup system has also been simplified, with more options in the slave system now dictated by the master system, leaving less room for accidental errors. A new display in the Song Name area also warns if a track about to be replayed has been recorded at a different sample rate to the one at which the BBR is currently set.

Further options for timecode display, MIDI control of the headphone monitor mix and high-resolution metering have also been added, along with the ability to solo in either mono or stereo using the record enable LEDs as a horizontal meter.
