Cobbin says "No other device on the market uses convolution to replicate analogue outboard equipment - plus it comes with its own sampling software, which enables us to sample our own classic valve equipment such as Fairchild compressors and Pultec equalisers."
Cobbin adds: "With its own sampling software the FX8000 makes effects limitless. We can now deliver whatever the project requires with very exciting results."
The FX8000 samples and simulates analogue processors, allowing Classic EQ and Dynamics to be applied digitally across 1 to 8 channels within one unit.
|BLACKBOX RECORDER Wins 2012 TEC Award and Readers' Choice Award||BLACKBOX RECORDERS capture George Michael|
The JoeCo BlackBox Recorder, designed in partnership with Sintefex Audio Lda, has received a TEC award. The BlackBox Recorder was voted Winner of the Recording Devices category at the 27th Annual Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards. Winners were announced at a special event held during the 2012 NAMM Show.
Also at NAMM, the results of the Third Annual Pro Sound Web and Live Sound International Readers' Choice Awards were announced, with JoeCo achieving a second consecutive win in the Live Recording Hardware category, this time for the new BlackBox BBR64-MADI Recorder. The results followed 6 weeks of voting by thousands of Live Sound International and Pro Sound Web readers.
A total of eight JoeCo BlackBox BBR64-MADI recorders, designed in a joint venture between JoeCo and Sintefex Audio, were used on the recent George Michael Symphonica Tour to capture 2x256 channels of audio in what was potentially one of the largest live recording projects to date.
In addition to their nightly recording function, and the additional capture of soundchecks, the BlackBoxes were also used in Virtual Soundcheck mode for system set-ups, replaying material from previous shows to help balance and EQ the PA system at each venue.
At the Royal Opera House, four further BBR64-MADI units were connected to an additional DiGiCo console, generating broadcast mixes for this particular show. As well as running an extra 256-channel record, the BlackBox recorders also acted as a playback engine for making adjustments to the broadcast mix.
The BlackBox BBR64-MADI Recorders were supplied by Wigwam Acoustics Ltd (www.wigwamacoustics.co.uk) and JoeCo Ltd. Image used by kind permisssion.
