As Dante™ becomes the professional's choice for AV networking, so the BLACKBOX Recorder delivers a trusted multi-track Dante recorder solution upon which professionals can rely – the BLACKBOX BBR64-DANTE.

With the BBR64-DANTE, users can record and replay up to 64 channels of audio data from a Dante™ network, recording at 44.1kHz and 48kHz directly to Broadcast WAV files on an external USB2 drive. (Higher sample rate recording is also accommodated at a reduced track count.)

The BBR64-DANTE allows hassle-free communication with any of the many hundreds of Dante™-enabled devices now in use worldwide. Designed to support standard network components and switches, it can also record 8 channels of analogue (balanced line in) alongside 56 channels of Dante for capturing audience and ambience.

The BBR64-DANTE will lock to or generate word clock, as well as locking to the incoming Dante audio stream. In addition to the PFL bus providing both hi-resolution metering and headphone monitoring, an additional 'mix' feature has been added to the headphone output.

All BLACKBOX Recorders are designed and built to exacting standards with rugged construction and a suite of unique multi-track audio capture features. The choice of professional users, the BBR64-DANTE multi-track Dante recorder is the solution the professional audio industry chooses and trusts.

Trusted multi-track recording from touring sound to the studio. The BLACKBOX Recorder was the first professional multi-track recorder designed to solve the inherent problems of working with computer-based systems in a live environment, and it remains the most trusted. Relied upon by engineers on tour, in mission-critical broadcasting set-ups and installations all over the world, the BLACKBOX Multi-Track Recorder is the first and last word in reliable multi-tracking audio recording.

BLACKBOX Multi-Track Recorders are available in a variety of formats, both analogue and digital, to meet your requirements. They are supremely simple to use - simply connect the input and output, add power and a USB drive, then hit RECORD. Designed to meet mission-critical standards of professional use, they include fail-safe systems such as JoeCo's 'Safe 'n' Sound' recovery - your audio files will be recovered even after a sudden accidental loss of power.

The original BBR1 BLACKBOX Recorder can record or replay up to 24 channels of 24bit/96kHz audio in Broadcast WAV (BWAV) format. Meanwhile, the BBR64-MADI and BBR64-DANTE versions of the recorder can record or replay up to 64 channels at standard sample rates*, all in a compact 1U box.

All BLACKBOX Multi-Track Recorders support the replay of polyphonic wav files, from multiple stereo files up to 24- or even 64-channel PolyWAV files. Mono, stereo and multichannel files can even be used together in the same song, massively enhancing the system's flexibility.

Audio is recorded as industry-standard mono broadcast WAV files to an external USB2 drive, thereby ensuring that all data is easy to remove, carry away and use. Recorded files can be instantly imported into any Mac- or PC-based Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). The implementation of JoeCo's iXML plug-in (see Software Options) additionally enables PolyWAV files to be recorded.

For operation, core functions are all accessible via the sleek and intuitive front panel, with a menu-driven user interface, touch sensitive transport controls, a data wheel and function buttons. A full colour LCD displays all required information. Remote control is possible via the JoeCoRemote app for iPad.

Other timesaving and professional features include virtual soundcheck; disk drive formatting; the ability to create a headphone monitor mix with level and pan on every track; a keyboard interface, optional footswitch operation, a Name Manager for creating templates and modifying track or song names, plus a variety of shortcuts for speedily navigating menu options and transport controls. The recorder also offers a range of enhancements for film, TV and broadcast applications including support for 23.98fps time code, 9-pin support for edit controllers, and iXML support.
