Cambridge, UK (September 6, 2016)—JoeCo is launching its BlueBox range of Workstation Interface Recorders later this week at IBC 2016 in Amsterdam.
Delivering up to 24 channels of individually switchable mic/line inputs, BlueBox can also back-up all of a user’s work, all of the time, safeguarding one’s work from unexpected DAW freeze and failure. Meanwhile, for location recording, all the features of JoeCo’s BlackBox Recorder are available as well.
The BlueBox range launches with two Workstation Interface Recorders, the BBWR24MP and BBWR08MP, which are both 24bit/96kHz models. The BBWR24MP provides 24 channels of individually switchable mic/line inputs, while the BBWR08MP offers eight channels of individually switchable mic/line inputs and 16 channels of dedicated balanced line inputs. All mic channels on both units incorporate JoeCo’s traditional mic preamp designs.
In a studio environment, a BBWR24MP will deliver 24 channels of audio at 24bit/96kHz both to and from a workstation, with near-zero latency and simultaneously back up of all audio at the same quality. In the field, all of the mic preamps become available to deliver a fully stand-alone, multi-channel audio acquisition recorder with near-zero latency and 24bit/96kHz performance.
For larger applications, multiple BBWR24MP units can be connected to Mac (via Core Audio drivers) or Windows (via dedicated ASIO drivers). It can be controlled either from the workstation itself with JoeCoControl, or using the JoeCoRemote app for iPad. Both platforms offer features and functions such as the setting of individual mic pre channel parameters, expandable channel strips and real-time monitor mix adjustment.
