The BLACKBOX RECORDER with Digital AES/EBU i/o enables audio capture via a digital mixing console with AES/EBU inputs and outputs. Three 25-way female D-type connectors, each carrying 8 channels of inputs and outputs, can be connected directly into the digital mixer to capture and return the signals without any additional A-D conversion, giving 12 stereo channels of AES/EBU inputs and 12 stereo channels of AES/EBU outputs. Analogue inputs are also still available (switchable). All other BlackBox Recorder features remain unchanged.
The AES/EBU interfaces can operate at up to 96kHz and conform to the AES standard (AES-3:2003). It is also still possible to chain multiple BBR1D units together to make larger multitrack recordings.
Records up to 24 channels at 24 Bit / 96 kHz. (analogue, AES/EBU and Light pipe versions). BBR64-MADI and BBR64-DANTE record up to 64 channels. (Multiple units can be linked together for higher track counts.)
Records audio in Broadcast WAV format onto a regular USB2 disk drive, USB Flash drive (FAT32 formatted), or SDHC card via USB2 connector. Built-in formatting facility included.
Enables direct import of recorded audio files from the hard drive to any Mac- or PC-based DAW for instant editing and remixing. No file transfer or conversion necessary.
Is simple to operate via a sleek front panel menu-driven user interface and touch sensitive controls.
Is available in six models; analogue: unbalanced and balanced i/o, digital: AES/EBU and Lightpipe - for use with both analogue and digital consoles, MADI and DANTE.
Supports Linear Time Code, MIDI time code and SONY PII (9-pin) control, MIDI Machine Control and AES / SPDIF word clock.
Can attach to the insert points of any live console to provide Virtual Sound Check facilities.
Includes "fail safe" features for secure audio capture such as playback lockout and preventing accidental Stop.
Allows the creation of headphone monitoring mixes, with level and pan on each track (analogue, AES/EBU and Light pipe versions). On MADI and DANTE versions individual channels, or pairs of channels can be monitored on a PFL bus providing both hi-resolution metering and headphone monitoring.
Features a QWERTY keyboard interface and Name Manager for easily creating templates and modifying track or song names.
Offers enhancements for film, TV and broadcast applications including support for 23.98fps time code, improvements to 9-pin support for edit controllers and support for iXML
