BlakBox. All in one, the perfect system
The BlakBox series is the instrument that Digital Luthier® manufactures from scratch for customers that require an exclusive and customized control. It is an ultra-light flightcase with great strength and resistance, and is capable of housing the control circuits involved in the signal processing, along with many other components. The concept and design is made from scratch, with only the BlakBox as a starting point; from there it is possible to customize, choosing the functions that are required.
The perfect setup
In this case our BlakBox® series is a mixer for different audio tools. In turn, the system keeps the complete connection with the computers and the peripheral hardware, such as beat boxes, synths, etc. allowing control of these from its very own panel. The connection is achieved through just one firewire cable that is able to process both audio and video data. It becomes the perfect system, since BlakBox can be installed and control a big setup in reduced and confined spaces.
Directly to the computer
BlakBox® is ready to work both in live mode and just by plugging a firewire cable to a computer. It has 4 stereo audio inputs that can be configured from our Ableton®Live or traktor® board, thus giving total control of the parameters. The equipment also incorporates inputs to enable the use of classic record players, but with the option to send the signal with our personalized effects.
BlakBox® permits the connection of a vinyl player via specific inputs for that kind of impedance. It incorporates the option of editing the signal to add customized effects. The main audio engine for the system is provided by Rodec and consists of 4 high quality preamplifiers which incorporate an equalizer and effects module, as well as an audio master amplifier which enables a powerful main output sound.
The inputs, outputs and connections of the main equipment are set on the upper part of the device, allowing the correct selection and connection even in the most adverse conditions due to a lack of space and light. The equipment is provided with inputs and outputs of all kinds of impedance for all kind of connections: Jack, RCA, XLR, USB, Firewire, etc, including the classic DIN5 connectors for MIDI protocols.
BlakBox® development adapts itself perfectly to the user’s phisiognomy and it is made with materials of high quality that tend to dissipate the heat that the electronic system generates. In addition, it is equipped with an extra refrigeration system of 2 special low noise fans, that circulate air in and out.
The BlakBox® kontrol software of Digital Luthier® permits the configuration of our system for the BlakBox series. It allows access to both basic and advanced configuration parameters, such as the production of effects and chain frameworks that can be used later in live performances, offering very interesting results. It also permits an easy configuration of the device and the parameters that affect all the hardware equipment via OSC - MIDI.
