    UTILIZATION

    The general configuration is quite complex when did not know but with a manual (not always clear) in front you get a way out.
    the drum machine still quite nice for this kind of device

    SOUNDS

    sounds are very good and the unit sounds pretty good view even surprising for its size. despite these simulation generous nothing worth recording one real prick directly into an amp with a microphone

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 4 years now, I do not regret my purchase and I am quite satisfied with what he gives as result.
    are weight, height and small footprint make it a real asset for this kind of device, it is a really good digital mutli-psites

    This compact 8-track digital recorder (about 10x7x1) comes in a gray finish. I bought it about three years ago. It was my first taste of home recording, so I was looking for something comprehensive but still user friendly. The unit includes a drum machine with many preset beats and the freedom to create your own. I only used it for my own personal entertainment, mostly recording guitar and vocals on it.

    I bought this item at Guitar Center for $350.

    There are tons of big and little things to like about this unit. First of all, being a guitar player who doesn't play/own a full drum set, the drum machine comes in very handy. You can use their preset songs or create your own. It is even handy just to make it play quarter notes to act as a metronome when recording. Another thing I loved was the fact that there is a microphone built in. Sure, they aren't the highest quality, but being a teenager, I spent all my money on this and couldn't afford to buy a mic/connecting cable, So I was glad that it was ready to record right out of the box. To be honest, I haven't really taken full advantage of the many things this unit has to offer. It has pitch correction, loops, a tuner, and tons of mastering abilities. Also, the amount of guitar effects is amazing. I believe there are about 150. And if you don't find the exact one you are looking for, you can modify the preset ones by changing the delay or eq or preamp.

    One of the things I don't like about this unit is the fact that the screen is so small. I wish it were a bigger screen so it would be easier to see. Also, I wish the battery life was better so that it didn't always have to be plugged into the wall.

    This unit has held up quite nicely over the few years I've had it. To be honest, it has never really left my basement so it hasn't been dropped or taken on the road, but it looks and feels like a very sturdy product.

    Overall, this was a great choice for my first digital recorder. It was easy to use, and even if I didn't know how to do something, the manual it came with was extremely helpful and easy to use. It will not give you completely professional sounding results, but it will get you extremely close for a fraction of the price. I was very happy that I bought this product.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 4 years now, I hesitated with a sound card + pc (which I think is more pro) but I was seduced by the ease of installation, transportation and use (once we understand the operation)

    not pout the same things .. great machine pro
    br 600 but its strength is my job to remember cassettes of kids
    bcp most advanced ... but it is a reliable partner (boss)

    it is on should not make him fall (plastic)
    storage capacity is limited (a go I think ..)
    but he communicates very well with the PC through its USB so we reverse on his computer and voila (or is the problem of storage ?????)!!!

    I mean when in the opinion of some talking about his technical abilities exceeded I understand .. but I think it is not the approach of this machine ..

    it is a tool for inspiration!
    and I will not compare my Mac to my boss and RME!


    He put the tools at hand to put your ideas very quickly and save up other things correctly.


    This is what the br .. 600

    Moreover, as such I'm eyeing the side of the zoom r8
    br is a better and who can make use of portable audio interface and more ...


    conclusion

    we all work according to our needs and expectations .. do not quite confused
    BR 600 is a great machine in its register
    If your philosophy is primarily to create music and have a quick result.

    Connectivity is standard for this type of tool (input and output) in this price range.

    Storage is on memory card (comes with a 128MB card). Possibility to tranfer tracks, but also the setup, patterns, kits, ... to a PC (or Mac) via USB port.

    It is possible to record two tracks simultaneously (two microphones, a microphone or a guitar + or + microphone or guitar input LINE)

    The bad thing is the AC adapter is not included.
    Neither the footswitch (very useful to start the recorder hands free)

    UTILIZATION

    Handling general least 1 hour (the first 20 pages of doc for understanding the operating principle).
    The advanced features will need to read the doc until the end. Overall the documentation is very good.

    Due to the small size, we must understand the operating principles qqs. Nothing shocking. It's going very fast.

    The use of the recorder, effects guitar / bass / vocals are easy to access.

    The BAR (drum machine) is of excellent quality (BAR kits of Boss / Roland). Patterns and arrangements are planned well made, with a comprehensive upgrade path:
    - Loading from a PC (kit, pattern and MIDI)
    - Creation in real time from the sensory pad (5 levels)
    - Creation programmed pattern
    Everything is possible, now it is long

    SOUNDS

    No complaints about sound quality! for both the recorder for the effects or kits. The unit is very accurate. I find the sound of my guitars.
    Not being a singer, I can not comment on the microphone.

    The effects are good qualities (Boss. ..) and in sufficient numbers. Nothing to criticize on this point.
    Effect chains are adjustable (in the level, composition, ...).
    There are effects for guitars (acoustic and bass with emulations), bass, acoustic, singing, and the input line (eg with a Low Fi) ...

    Note, it is possible to record your tracks "dry": no effect, and apply your effects post recording

    OVERALL OPINION

    Buy fewer than 1 week is my first multitrack. I had a small recording experience for PC, and I'm pretty well documented.

    Most:
    - The BAR, because of its quality and scalability
    - Size notebook
    - The possibility of working on battery (unlike its direct competitor)
    - Quality of the effects (as boss)

    The -:
    - AC adapter not included
    - Optional footswitch
    - No start the recorder after a programmable interval (type 4 measures metronome and it starts hop)

    Quality / price ratio: ok.

    Not long back, in relation to this equipment, at least not regret.

    The configuration is fairly simple, the menus remain consistent regardless of the function.

    We can quickly use the beast, the manual begins with a QuickStart very well done.
    The rest of the manual is revealed gradually as and when required.
    The explanations are both clear and very specific (each menu and each manipulation is detailed)

    Otherwise, it is still possible to learn here

    SOUNDS

    For the time (two weeks) all seemed very balanced and consistent.

    The huge plus is the built-in microphones and associated presets.
    I was able to make the song just whispered to my son just shy a few days later, taking a very rock rehearsal.

    The result is more than satisfactory, I was expecting to have to juggle two microphones and then taken to making instrument by instrument.
    It remains the best option for a more paufiné, but at this stage, I was looking especially the speed of decision / publication to move fast in the exploration of concert dates.

    The only thing I would have presets for the bass I have not found anything that suits me really.
    I ended up playing with a preset guitar very clean.
    I still need to test the ability to record my bass without effect in dry, but the result for me already.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for two weeks and it is for the moment with what I had in mind.

    I used to map a Edirol FA101 but honestly, I spent more time in the interfaces in the computer problems ... in music.

    The BR-600 certainly offers fewer opportunities to start, than in / out ... but he has already come twice in rehearsal

    I had traveled much of fr.audiofanzine.com and I opted for the BR-600 for two more:
    - The built-in microphones.
    - Battery power possible.

    For the first point, I am extremely satisfied, the rendering is amazing for these two simple things;)
    For battery power, I have not tested too but the batteries seem to drain as j'utilisent too quickly ... Stay tuned on that.

    As for the USB, there is the minimum functionality: import / export of settings, from noon to BAR, audio tracks.
    This aspect of the BR-600 is significantly behind in terms of ergonomics: Always carry a small series of manipulations, then we get the result on the PC.
    A direct flight would have seemed better.
    The performance of the BR-600 may be related to the proprietary format but suddenly there is always a conversion phase a bit long.

    But I still got my other order made without a little bit of heaviness ergonomic quickly you get used to work quickly

    In the end, I loved:
    - The overall simplicity
    - The quality of the mic

    I liked:
    - A range of presets guitar / mic and sound
    - Ergonomics suited

    I did not like:
    - Presets low (but adjustable, so good)
    - The use of USB rather limited and repetitive tasks related

    However, I would put 10/10 in global opinion, it's still the only note played or subjective as well.
    There is a perfect match between my current needs and the product, so ... musician happy!

    The BR600 is not provided AC adapter to buy if you want to have the best ever performance of the device and that is as long as it is better to buy one. If the unit is not running as the battery is well stated that the unit is greedy and it will change the batteries regularly.

    The device has a relatively small memory card but not ridiculous either. However, the unit needs a minimum of free space to extract the data to a PC, sure that you will not fall in the case of a full card that you can not move! 1Gig card is recommended for a quiet and maximum storage space.

    It is possible to plug in and output jack, jack, RCA and USB.

    This recorder has 8pistes + virtual 8pistes per track.

    It is possible to plug in and output jack, jack, RCA and USB.

    This recorder has 8pistes + virtual 8pistes per track.

    The recorder has two external stereo microphones and can accommodate two external microphones.

    The effects are numerous and very good and the drum machine is extremely large!

    The device, its small size and thickness (3 cm!) To look like a play. But the opposite is true! This equipment is fragile and must not be within the reach of children.

    UTILIZATION

    I do not know if it can be easier to use as a means for a device that at first glance seems quite complicated. A manual that explains everything step by step, with small pictures of buttons and menus. Perfect for amateur and decorative for someone there is already a minimum.

    The unit is very bright and the colors tell you which mode you are, if a track has data, if it was designated to record, etc..

    SOUNDS

    What I feared when buying is the quality of built-in microphones, stereo microphones these friars seem permière but from the record it becomes immediately aware of the enormous qualities of these two stereo microphones. Quality, précisin, sensitivity is great is you can record acoustic instruments, vocals and percussion from these small microphones. Just rub your fingers that is. Be careful when records have no noise around, they will be registered as well!

    And there's an input jack for electric instruments, I recorded my bass and the quality is really superb.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it now for about four months, the quality is really very good for models of very high quality, with the drum machine you are able to create a piece of A to Z all by yourself!

    I never buy a digital recorder before but, there is no doubt that with such high quality the price is really affordable.

    The quality is exeptional external microphones, you have the option to connect two external microphones (when they are connected, the external microphones do not work) but be careful not to buy microphones that would be the limit, worse than already integrated!

    A device that, without doubt, is essential for fans who want to make quality recordings, as they want and with great ease!

    The device is easy to use but there are so many functions, it is not easy to remember everything but when mastering such a device, the arts no longer knows the word "limit"!

    I put 9 / 10 just because of aesthetics that can make it default, this device has enormous qualities in all respects and for all users combined (amateur, semi-pro, pro - even though it will probably stuff the more evolved -) but his style might suggest that the device is not serious enough so that the quality of the unit was worth every penny.
