JoeCo BlueBox BlueBox line of Workstation Interface Recorders has been announced by JoeCo, offering stand-alone multitrack audio recording.

The BlueBox range launches with two Workstation Interface Recorders, the BBWR24MP and BBWR08MP. Both 96kHz, 24-bit models follow the BlackBox range in construction and reliability. The BBWR24MP provides 24 channels of individually switchable mic/line inputs, while the BBWR08MP represents JoeCo’s most affordable package yet with eight channels of individually switchable mic/line inputs and 16 channels of dedicated balanced line inputs. All mic channels on both units incorporate JoeCo mic preamp designs.

In a studio environment, a BBWR24MP will deliver 24 audio channels at 24bit/96kHz both to and from a workstation, with near-zero latency and simultaneously back-up of all audio at the same resolution. In the field, all of the mic preamps become available to deliver a full stand-alone, multichannel audio acquisition recorder with near-zero latency and 96kHz, 24-bit performance. For larger applications, multiple BBWR24MP units can be connected to Mac (via Core Audio drivers) or Windows (via dedicated ASIO drivers). BlueBox can be controlled either from the workstation itself with JoeCoControl, or using the JoeCoRemote app for iPad. Both platforms open a wealth of features and functions such as the setting of individual mic pre channel parameters, expandable channel strips and real-time monitor mix adjustment.

‘After the success of the BlackBox Recorder, we were asked to create an interface based on the same technology – BlueBox is that and much more besides,’ says JoeCo MD Joe Bull. ‘It’s a powerful high-end interface platform with the best preamps available, and it’s also the best insurance policy against losing work that any DAW-based studio can choose. No matter how robust a DAW-based set-up might seem, there is always a risk that something could go wrong and that critical work could be lost. With BlueBox, you can simply press record at the beginning of the day and it will capture all of your work, all of the time. Not even a power loss is enough to stop it.’
