I am looking at upgrading a traveling rig I use for live events and I am looking at exchanging 24 rack units of backup recording devices for this 1 rack unit JoeCo Blackbox Recorder:


Has anyone used one?

This would go on as my backup recorder to a Pro Tools I/O.

I had one in to test but this was in optimum recording environments on my line conditioned power. I am curious if it holds up under actual live, dark back stage, heat of the moment recording situations?

This could also be a good unit for you guys to bring with you on big gunshot recording sessions.

  • @Utopia: I've heard great things. Are you planning to use this for bars/clubs, auditorium shows, or a mix of both? Not that I know what difference it would make, I'm just being nosy :)

  • @g.a.harry International Awards shows mainly, with a live music show here and there. The cool thing is that you can daisy-chain more on each other to get more and more inputs.
