GNARBOX Charges in Mass Storage Mode From Computer (USB-C)

We have enhanced the power delivery system on the GNARBOX so that users will now be able to toggle on or off the ability for GNARBOX to charge off USB-C computers when in Mass Storage Mode - the default setting will be ON.

This feature was designed to give users flexibility and choice, in the event that they are using their laptop without it connected to a charger, and don’t want to drain the laptop battery charging the GNARBOX, for instance.

Unfortunately due to the difference in power delivery (PD) between USB-C and USB-A ports, this feature will not work with USB-A computers, as the port type is not able to provide enough power.

Persistant Metadata in Selects

With the addition of persistent metadata, users can now see which files have had metadata applied versus those which haven’t, making it easy to stop mid cull and pick it up again later.

Battery Status Shown During Onboard Backups

Users now have visibility into the amount of battery your GNARBOX has during an active transfer. This is particularly important information for the user during long file transfers.

NAS Integration via SMB File Sharing

SMB file sharing allows you to connect your GNARBOX 2.0 SSD to any server or NAS device over USB-C Ethernet or WiFi to offload files in the studio. This interaction allows professionals who rely on NAS systems to safely archive their files in a few taps, cutting minutes and possibly hours out of their workflow.

To ensure maximum reliability, we worked with industry leaders Synology and LumaForge to build specific workflows for use with their NAS devices and studio media servers.

In order to use this new feature, simply connect your GNARBOX to a network over USB-C Ethernet or WiFi. We recommend using USB-C for maximum connection throughput. Any server on the network will appear in a menu in the Safekeep and Selects apps, allowing you to select a sharepoint and securely authenticate. It takes seconds to initiate a transfer and you no longer have to spend time wrangling files when you arrive back to your edit station. This feature also allows you to use key backup settings like Smart Backup or MD5 Checksum Verification when backing up to your NAS. It will even automatically reconnect to servers you’ve previously configured!

SMB file sharing is available in GNARBOX’s Safekeep and Selects apps for iOS and Android.

Delete in Selects

Users can now delete files from their GNARBOX in the Selects list view. Additionally, you can now remove a file from a Selects Workspace, or delete it entirely while culling.

Back up GNARBOX via OLED

Users can now back up the entire contents of the GNARBOX to an external drive using the OLED.

Save to Camera Roll/Gallery from Selects Workspace

Users can now save images to their device's camera roll from both the Selects list view, as well as a Workspace.
