Based on JoeCo’s award-winning BlackBox Recorder technology, the new BlackBox BBR1MP Recorder is a stand-alone, live, multi-channel audio acquisition solution primarily designed with the broadcast engineer and location sound recordist in mind.

The 24-channel recorder offers all the standard BlackBox features as well as 24 high-quality microphone preamps, operating at up to 24-bit/96 kHz, which are integrated into the recorder’s tiny 1U housing. The BBR1MP features a range of connection options including individually switchable mic/line inputs and balanced outputs, video sync, timecode 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 breakout panel with XLR connectors (sold separately).

NOTE:  Image shown above is for illustrative purposes only; iPad shown is NOT included with purchase of BB1RMP. For more information on this and other products, contact your Sales Representative. 

Audio is recorded direct to external USB2 drive in Broadcast WAV format for instant ingest into post production. Alongside the BBR1MP’s multi-channel 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 pre 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.

The BBR1MP’s compact dimensions, high-quality mic preamps and converters make it a practical, elegant solution for a range of broadcast applications, as well as for live engineers needing a portable multi-channel recording option.
