Boss BR-532

Boss BR-532 Digital StudioPublished on 12/30/03 at 15:00
Paid 250 on ebay. Got the unit for adding guitar recording to software synth songs.

The interface may be daunting at first, but it's actually quite good. You have direct access to all of the important functions on the face of the unit. There are dedicated dials and sliders for all the important input/outputs which is excellent, no switching between two different functions. Most importantly sound quality is really good. Hook up a guitar and mic, and you'll be surprised how good it is. The canned effects are alright, but you can save up to 30 user effects that are fully customizable!

Don't like that the memory cards are smart media. They're fine, but you're limited to 128Mb. I guess...…

Don't like that the memory cards are smart media. They're fine, but you're limited to 128Mb. I guess that's okay, since this is more of a 4 track song writing/developing type of unit, not just a straight digital recorder.
oh yeah, and there's no midi in.


Construction is plastic, but it's still top notch. Very good overall. Plus, it's the function that counts eh?

All in all, it's a good deal, considering you can get them now at bargain prices.

I was looking for something to replace my old 4 track analog machine and found the features of this unit to be good value based on the price.
I paid 679.00 Canadian for the unit.

I like the built in features such as the various guitar sounds and the ability to modify the presets to just about any combination you want. I also like the built in Bass simulator it sounds almost as good as a real bass guitar and once it is mixed you can't tell the difference. It is also very portable and is easy to take anywhere.

The instruction book could be better written some of the descriptions are hard to understand

The 32 Mb card supplied with the unit is too small. A 128 Mb card is a must. I keep losing tracks when trying to bounce them and find its a hit and miss situation lots of the time.

The unit seems to be built very well. All controls function smoothly. Its easy to hit some of the wrong buttons due to their close proximity to one another. The sound quality is very good. The recorded sounds are clear and noise free. A big improvement over analog units.


Lots of features built in to a compact unit. Very portable and good sound quality. Could use a better instruction manual. Unit should come standard with a larger sound card. 32Mb is just too small.

The Boss BR532 has great quality recording for a small price: only $667 at a local guitar shop. I purchased this product so that I could more conveniently record my songs. Before owning the Boss digital recording console I had trouble remembering my ideas and I had a lot of paper clutter. Now all my songs are recorded and neatley stored on discs.

Its compact size and ability to run off of battery power makes the BR532 portable so you can record almost any place you want to. The bass simulator and amp modeling effects give you the sound that you need without needing to buy all of the expensive equipment.

The batteries do not last as long as I would have liked, making the power cord a neccesity, but the power cord is not included with the purchase of a BR532. Video instructions are not included with the product but can be bought seperately.

It has a surprisingly crisp and clear sound quality. It is built to last and easy troubleshoot. Its relatively light weight makes it very easy to transport from place to place.

This product was exactly what I wanted but more than I would have expected for such a low price. You can record all your song ideas without the hassle, expense, or waiting involved with booking time at a recording studio.

Boss BR-532 Digital Recorder

Boss BR-532 Digital StudioPublished on 11/02/03 at 15:00
I acquired this 4-track digital recorder after havind a not-so-good experience with other brand, that claimed it was portable and very easy to use. Although that unit had some really good effects, it was only 20-bit and 31.25 kHz; and was not "user-friendly". So, searching the Web, I found the BOSS recorder. The 4-track was the only one I could afford; I play guitar, keyboards and other instruments, and I make music of various styles, planning to record CDs in the future.So, I went to a store called "Drum |Shop" and bought it.It cost aroiund US$ 450.

It´s very easy to use, and has many built-in effects; the recorder resembles a 4-track portastudio, so it´s very "user-friendly". I made some recordings, transferred them to the PC via a Smart
Media device, and burnt to CD, with very good quality as a result.

The only problem is that it´s a 4-track recorder; for the kind of music I make, it would be better an 8-track...

Excellent quality, like all the gear that BOSS makes.
For rock´n´roll, new age, blues, everything, it can give a superb quality of recording.

If I have to choose again between brands, I´d take a BOSS recorder...always.
