"The main priority for a recording device is the audio quality you are left with. The BlackBox delivers fantastic sound and as it records directly into a hard drive, this means I could take my show away and begin mixing instantly. The face of the BlackBox is crystal clear and the intuitive menu and functionality is superb. Set up is so easy and this meant I could get my recording going quickly and concentrate on my live show as the recorder took care of itself. As the BlackBox is only 1U, it took very little of my outboard touring rack and created a lot of interest from other sound engineers"
Andy Egerton, FOH Engineer, Francis Dunnery Band (Fearless Tour 2010)
"The recorders have evidently been designed with poor stage lighting conditions in mind. The meters and transport controls are clearly visible in the dark, even from a distance. Both that, and the confidence from monitoring via the headphone output makes me feel safe while recording."
Marc Broer, Sound Engineer, ART-Sound Mobile, The Netherlands
"Hook up was simplicity itself, connect the looms, connect the hard drive, power up and off you go! I had fun telling the system techs how much 24-track audio you could record with a Terabyte hard drive - 80 hours, unbelievable!"
Graham Ewins, FOH Engineer, Procol Harum.
"Interfacing the BLACKBOX RECORDER with my analogue equipment was easy and the sound of the BBR’s converters is amazing, The BBR1-U connected to the insert points of the analogue console saved me a lot of time, as I did not have to worry about my recording levels during the concert."
Sven Geiger, FOH Engineer, Stoppok plus Worthy.
"Linking the two balanced BLACKBOX RECORDER units and programming them to function as a 48-track recorder worked well. Festival temperatures varied from 42 to 91 degrees Fahrenheit, however the JoeCo Blackboxes handled conditions flawlessly, working day in and day out through the dust and heat."
Frank Martin, (Media Production Associates) FOH Engineer MerleFest 2010, USA.
"The machine performed very well. Well, laid out, easy to set up and operate and the results sound great in my studio!"
