dBbox2 monitoring, metering and generation of analogue, AES/EBU and SPDIF audio.
The dBbox2 allows monitoring, metering and generation of analogue, AES/EBU and SPDIF audio from a pocket sized box.
The dBbox2 includes a simple five key menu interface to make any test as simple as possible.
Monitor mono or stereo line level analogue inputs using the built in speaker or 1/4 inch or 3.5mm headphones.
Meter using either PPM or VU scale also with stereo phase meter.
Monitor microphone level analogue inputs
Monitor AES/EBU balanced or unbalanced inputs at 48kHz, 96kHz and many other sample rates using the built in speaker or headphones. Meter using -18dBFS, -20dBFS, PPM or VU scale with stereo phase meter.
Analyse AES sample rate, status and data errors.
Generate steady tone, tone sweep, GLITS, EBU, left only, right only, on both analogue and AES/EBU outputs at 48kHz or 96kHz. Tone frequency may be adjusted in third octave steps. Adjust Tone level from +10 to -60dBu in 1dB steps.
Use the built in microphone to talk to analogue or AES/EBU outputs.
Generate pink or white noise and send to left/right/both outputs in both analogue and AES/EBU with a choice of levels in 1dB steps from +10dBu to -60dBu.
Send an external mic to analogue and AES outputs with gain adjust and phantom power.
Read longitudinal timecode at 24,25,29.97 and 30fps with level metering, monitoring, freeze and feedthrough.
Generate longitudinal test timecode at 24,25,29.97 and 30fps with set time and start/stop.
Insert audio delay into analogue and AES signals, 80mS mono, 40mS stereo.
Phantom power test with voltage read out. Also useful for checking 2 wire talkback power and channel.
MIDI receiver identifying channel, note on/off and note number.
dBbox2 MIDI transmitter with a choice of note, channel and velocity, note on and note off.
Analyse incoming MIDI signals with pass through.
Use the dBbox2 as an analogue to digital or a digital to analogue converter with adjustable gain in 1dB steps, a limiter and HF, LF and Mid range equalisation.
Mono or stereo microphone amplifier with 48v phantom power and analogue, AES/EBU or SPDIF output. Also with adjustable gain in 1dB steps, a limiter and HF, LF and Mid range equalisation.
Four wire box using the built in microphone and speaker or headphones.
Monitor and meter 2 wire channels.
Test XLR, BNC and MIDI cables.
Output tone and monitor incoming audio simultaneously using Analogue or AES inputs and outputs. Particularly useful for frequency response and performance tests.
Intelligent power control to extend battery life. The dBbox2 automatically switches off all electronics not required for the current task. A dynamic battery level indicator shows if you have enough battery power for a selected function.
dBbox2 Switchable backlight.
Update firmware online using the dBbox2 USB port via CTP Systems web site.
External power input via a standard mini usb.
