The BlackBox SoundGrid Recorder offers 24 bidirectional SoundGrid channels alongside 24-in/24-out analog channels and two headphone outputs. Each input channel features mic/line, gain, 48V, pad, phase-invert, HPF, and limiter controls which are available in the control panel accessed via the SoundGrid host application.
Using the BBSG24MP, you don’t need two separate computers at FOH, one for running the mixer and one for recording. The BBSG24MP can serve as both the recording device and the FOH I/O for monitoring, playback and talkback.
In standalone mode, the BBSG24MP is utilized as a playback/recording device using only its analog I/Os, and doesn’t have to be connected to a SoundGrid network. In this mode, the device is operated using its touch-sensitive front control panel.
