Digital Audio Workstations / Pro Tools / Digital Recording

We have been renting and servicing Pro Tools and other Digital Audio Workstations at Blackbird since we opened in 2004. Before that, members of our staff had been doing so since Pro Tools first came on the scene in the 1990's. Before this "fad" came about (ha!) ... We were renting Sony 3348's, Mitsubishi X880's and a wide variety of other digital tape machines in many different formats.

We are your digital audio experts!

From Avid HDX rigs with the latest, greatest software and hardware, to smaller rigs with Mac Mini's and laptops that are Thunderbolt and USB connected, we can customize a rig tailored to your specific needs. 

Full tracking, overdubbing, mixing, or live recording; call us today for a quote or consultation. We also do package deals on record and mix rigs with other gear from our massive inventory.

We are also available for full service live recording packages including some of the best audio engineers and techs in the business. 

For work within and without the DAW world, we also stock digital recording gear from Burl, Antelope, JoeCo, Prism, UA, Apogee, Mytek, Alesis, Sony, and more.

The BLACKBOX RECORDER is the first large-scale multi-channel recorder specifically designed for audio acquisition and capturing live performance. Developed to solve the inherent problems of working with computer-based systems in a live environment, it provides engineers with a computer-free, high-quality solution for live multi-channel audio capture.

Available in both analogue and digital variants, the regular BBR1 BlackBox Recorder can record or replay up to 24 channels of 24bit / 96kHz audio in Broadcast WAV (BWAV) format.The BBR64-MADI and BBR64-DANTE versions of the recorder can record / replay up to 64 channels at standard sample rates, while still retaining the same compact physical dimensions that are a feature of all BlackBox products. (On these systems, higher sample rate recording is accommodated at a reduced track count.) All BlackBox Recorder models now also support the replay of polyphonic wav files, from multiple stereo files up to 24- or even 64-channel PolyWAV files. Mono, stereo and multichannel files can even be used together in the same song massively enhancing the system’s flexibility.
