    The BLACKBOX RECORDER with Lightpipe i/o enables audio capture via a digital mixing console supporting Lightpipe (TOSlink) inputs and outputs. This BBR model can also interface directly with any of the high quality A-D converters that incorporate Lightpipe outputs.

    Three 8-channel Lightpipe inputs can be connected from the mixer and three Lightpipe outputs can return the signals back to the mixer. All other BlackBox Recorder features remain unchanged and the full analogue i/o capability of the standard BBR1 is still available for situations where the Lightpipe interface is not suitable.

    Note: Due to limitations in the Lightpipe format, use of this option restricts 24-track recording to single speed sample rates (44.1kHz and 48kHz). At double sample rates the unit employs the SMUX2 protocol reducing the i/o count to 12 channels. However, the full 24/24/96kHz facility is still available in the analogue domain.

    • Features

      • Records up to 24 channels at 24 Bit / 96 kHz. (analogue, AES/EBU and Light pipe versions). BBR64-MADI and BBR64-DANTE record up to 64 channels. (Multiple units can be linked together for higher track counts.)
      • Records audio in Broadcast WAV format onto a regular USB2 disk drive, USB Flash drive (FAT32 formatted), or SDHC card via USB2 connector. Built-in formatting facility included.
      • Enables direct import of recorded audio files from the hard drive to any Mac- or PC-based DAW for instant editing and remixing. No file transfer or conversion necessary.
      • Is simple to operate via a sleek front panel menu-driven user interface and touch sensitive controls.
      • Is available in six models; analogue: unbalanced and balanced i/o, digital: AES/EBU and Lightpipe - for use with both analogue and digital consoles, MADI and DANTE.
      • Supports Linear Time Code, MIDI time code and SONY PII (9-pin) control, MIDI Machine Control and AES / SPDIF word clock.
      • Can attach to the insert points of any live console to provide Virtual Sound Check facilities.
      • Includes "fail safe" features for secure audio capture such as playback lockout and preventing accidental Stop.
      • Allows the creation of headphone monitoring mixes, with level and pan on each track (analogue, AES/EBU and Light pipe versions). On MADI and DANTE versions individual channels, or pairs of channels can be monitored on a PFL bus providing both hi-resolution metering and headphone monitoring.
