JoeCo is to take the wraps off the BBR64-Dante Recorder, the latest addition to its BlackBox range of multichannel live audio recorder/players, at the forthcoming Pro Light & Sound show.

JoeCo BBR64-Dante RecorderAble to record or replay 64 channels, the BBR64-Dante is the result of JoeCo’s collaboration with Dante creator, Audinate. The original BBR-Dante system was released in 2011 and was able to record up to 32 channels of audio from a Dante network. The BBR64-Dante doubles that track count to 64, while retaining the 1U-high rack format.

The BBR64-Dante Recorder connects to any Dante-enabled network device from a range of console and converter manufacturers. In addition to recording 64 channels at standard sample rates, it can also record eight channels of analogue alongside 56 channels of Dante for capturing audience and ambience. Higher sample rate recording (88.2kHz and 96kHz) is also possible at a reduced track count.

As with all other BlackBox Recorders, audio is recorded in Broadcast WAV format to an external USB2 (FAT32 formatted) drive and can be instantly imported into any Mac- or PC-based Digital Audio Workstation for re-purposing. The BBR64-Dante will also continue to offer all the standard BlackBox Recorder safety features, such as Safe ‘n’ Sound Record Recovery as well as providing hi-resolution metering and headphone monitoring of individual/pairs of channels via internal PFL bus.

‘Having successfully launched the 64-channel Madi product last year, we have been able to incorporate much of that core technology to create the BBR64-Dante – a completely different machine internally,’ says JoeCo Managing Director. Joe Bull. ‘Continuing support from our friends at Audinate has made this possible in a remarkably short time.’

‘The BBR64-Dante Recorder provides a high channel recording solution for 64 channels of networked audio,’ says Dave Anderson, Director of Sales at Audinate. ‘The BBR64-Dante Recorder can interoperate directly with all Dante products on the network using standard off the shelf network switches, eliminating the need for expensive audio routers.’
