Cambridge, UK (November 17, 2016)—JoeCo has released a dedicated driver for its BlueBox Workstation Interface Recorders, allowing them to work with Windows 7, 8 and 10.
BlueBox protects against freeze and failure in DAW-based recording set-ups with a back-up facility. Delivering up to 24 channels of individually switchable mic/line inputs, BlueBox also offers all features of the BlackBox Recorder for fully stand-alone, high-end multi-track audio recording in the field.
Two BlueBox Workstation Interface Recorders are available at launch in the shape of the BBWR24MP and BBWR08MP. Both 24-bit/96 kHz models have been designed and constructed to the same standards as the BlackBox range. The BBWR24MP provides 24 channels of individually switchable mic/line inputs, while the BBWR08MP offers 8 channels of individually switchable mic/line inputs and 16 channels of dedicated balanced line inputs. All mic channels on both units incorporate JoeCo’s mic preamp designs.
In a studio environment, a BBWR24MP will deliver 24 channels of audio at 24-bit/96 kHz both to and from a workstation, with near-zero latency and simultaneous back up of all audio. 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 24-bit/96 kHz performance.
For larger applications, multiple BBWR24MP can be connected to the same Mac (via Core Audio drivers) or Windows (via dedicated ASIO drivers) machine. Users can also control a BlueBox from the workstation itself with JoeCoControl, or using the JoeCoRemote app for iPad.
