The BLACKBOX RECORDER with Balanced i/o enables audio capture via a mixing console with balanced insert points or direct outputs. The three lower 25-way female D-type connectors are used as balanced inputs and the three upper 25-way female as balanced outputs. The unit can use the same high quality D-type cables as for the unbalanced BBR1, but these are not supplied as there are too many different types of termination (1/4" TRS, XLR male, XLR female, 25-way D-type, etc.).
The BLACKBOX RECORDER with Unbalanced i/o is designed to plug across the insert points of a standard analogue mixing console via three 25-way female D-type connectors on the rear of the unit. Three 1/4-inch TRS terminated multicore looms are supplied for connecting the BBR to the console (TASCAM analogue format). Inside the unit, relays route the audio signal from input to output in all modes except during playback. This provides an additional level of safety so that in the event of a power failure on the BBR, the audio through the PA will not be affected.
The BLACKBOX RECORDER with Digital AES/EBU i/o enables audio capture via a digital mixing console with AES/EBU inputs and outputs. Three 25-way female D-type connectors, each carrying 8 channels of inputs and outputs, can be connected directly into the digital mixer to capture and return the signals without any additional A-D conversion, giving 12 stereo channels of AES/EBU inputs and 12 stereo channels of AES/EBU outputs. Analogue inputs are also still available (switchable). All other BlackBox Recorder features remain unchanged.
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.
