last saturday night I recorded a jazz concert with my mobile station based on Joeco BlackBox BBR1U. Very fine piece of gear, it’s very stable, it has a very good converter and it records 24 tracks at a time with a sample rate up to 96kHz@24bit.
BBR1U writes the data streaming directly on external hard disk (USB 3.0) in Wave broadcasting format.
Ok, I recorded, now do I have to mix these tracks, right?
Normally my DAW is Apple Logic Pro 9 but by now I verified that it doesn’t work fine with audio files made on BBR1U: problems to open the project and instability done.
This time the problems have increased probably due to high sample rate (96kHz)
Damn, ten minutes to open the project and frequently freeze… I went crazy…
Yesterday, I tried to convert files in AIF format with Weiss Saracon, but no dice… I had the same problems…
Although these problems yesterday I mixed with Logic and the sound was very fine.
Today back in my studio and the project doesn’t started!
I tried to open the project many times, but no dice. I was desperate…
At last I resolved by saving all files in AIF format (one by one) with Logic Sample Editor window and now it work fine!
So, don’t work Logic with Wave broadcasting? Surely I founded many problems.
Note: today I tried with Pro Tools 10 native and with Harrison Mixbus too and they worked fine (but by now I mixed with Logic).
Tomorrow I’ll close mix and I’ll deliver it to my customer.
Have a nice mix ( I hope),
