Alesis BRC ADAT remote
Autolocation and Transport Control for up to 16 ADATs The Alesis BRC Master Remote Control adds a set of powerful creative and operational tools to your ADAT or ADATXT digital recording system. It provides SMPTE, MIDI, and Video synchronization, digital editing, and a full-function multi-machine autolocator with an onboard memory. The BRC is the only device that allows you to control up to 128 ADAT tracks from one location, either table top mounted, in a studio rack, or on an optional roll-around stand. Another BRC function that can't be found anywhere else is the ability to edit and assemble your songs using bars and beats. Other features include sample-accurate auto punch in/out and rehearsal modes, 460 Location points with 8-character alphanumeric names, full control of Track Delay (up to 170 ms per track), Tape Offset between multiple recorders, SMPTE Offset and Generation, MIDI Tempo Maps and Clock Generation, and MIDI Machine Control.
More than just a remote control, the BRC is a SMPTE time code synchronizer, allowing ADATs to chase-lock to time code from video or analog recorders. SMPTE offsets may be set to single sample (1/48,000th of a second) accuracy. You can select ADAT's tape time, SMPTE time, or bars and beats as a display reference. All BRC settings and memories may be stored digitally on the data header of each ADAT tape for quick recall at any time. When you need to bring your ADATs together into a complete, fully-professional system, the BRC is the ultimate in digital audio recording control.
