JoeCo has extended its BlackBox product line with the release of the flagship BlackBox BBR1MP – a 24-channel, standalone, live audio recorder.

BlackBox BBR1MPIn addition to ‘standard’ BlackBox functionality, the BBR1MP features 24 high-quality microphone preamps, operating at up to 24bit/96kHz, which were developed in-house.

Primarily designed with the broadcast engineer and sound location recordist in mind, the iU-high unit offers a range of connection options, including individually switchable mic/line inputs, balanced outputs, video sync, time code and word clock inputs. User installable Dante and Madi interface cards are also available as options, adding 24 channels of Dante or Madi I/O to the BBR1MP unit. Microphones can either be connected to the unit via tails from the rear D-Sub connectors, or via an optional 2U-high breakout panel with XLR connectors. System components are available individually or as part of a bundle.

Audio is recorded direct to external USB2/3 drive in Broadcast WAV format for instant ingest into postproduction. Alongside the BBR1MP’s multichannel recording capabilities, provision is included for creating a simultaneous stereo mixdown. Full support for iXML data is also provided. The BBR1MP will run off a 12V power source. Unused channels and features can be disabled in order to preserve battery life on location.

The unit is fully controllable via JoeCoRemote for iPad. This includes the facility to set up individual mic preamp channel parameters – level, mic/line, phantom power, hi-pass filter, soft limiter and phase reverse. Levels are shown on high-resolution meters and the monitor mix can be adjusted using expandable channel strips with graphic faders, pan, solo, mute and other parameter controls.

‘Customers have been seeking a more compact complete solution to their multitrack audio recording needs and the BBR1MP will fill this gap in the market admirably,’ says JoeCo MD, Joe Bull. ‘Squeezing this many high-quality mic preamps into such a compact solution has been a challenge but we are thrilled with the results.’
