« Boss BR-8 Digital Recorder »

Published on 04/09/02 at 15:00
Purchased the unit for under $600.00 at a local music store (who met the advertised internet prices) after reading several reviews and doing some research on the net.

I was able to start recording after opening the box, and WITHOUT having to read the instruction manual. Boss has done a really good job of putting everything in a very straightforward manner. This one very easy to use recorder! And once you start tinkering around with the possibilites that are incorporated (compression, reverbs, delays, amp modeling, mic modeling, etc. etc), you realize that for the bucks, you have hit the jackpot! The BR-8 also has eight virtual tracks per track...so different takes can be made and then the best one used with the final mix.

I could be picky and ask for more reverb selections...but I won't. And, other than a small display window for the effects and the limitation of recording time on each disk, I haven't found ANYTHING to complain about. I might caution that when recording and using most of the tracks, it is a good idea to occassionaly clear (Boss calls it optimizing) the unecessary garbarge from the disks to free up more space and thus have more recording time.

The unit comes with a hard plastic casing that seems to hold up pretty well. I've only used it a couple of months, so only time will tell on the quality of construction. But, so far, so good!

For the home recording hobbyist, this is a killer peice. With its array of tools and features, it is hard for me to believe that there might be a better recorder for the bucks in the marketplace.
