The BR-800 is an ideal tool for both production of complex songs for recording the flight of ideas or his interest. Beginners can use the "EZ Recording mode" and be guided throughout recording. The "Retry" function automatically returns to the beginning of the last recording to start recording while "Song Sketch" feature lets you record a simple push of a button. To this is added a stereo condenser microphone and a function of rhythm with the same quality as the DR-880 drum parts and percussion.
Professional effects

The BR-800 contains all the effects you need for serious musical productions. Most of the effects are derived from BOSS effects processors as popular as the VE-20 (Effects for voice), the GT-10 series (COSM amp models for guitar and bass effects more) or AP-1 (processor to improve the sound of an unregistered by a micro simulating the rich sound of the body of the guitar acoustic guitar). Never a small recorder has proposed processors such power!
Taken on the spot

The BR-800 can be powered by AC adapter or 6 AA batteries, allowing you to save anywhere. The BR-800 is equipped with a stereo microphone, it allows you to save drafts of song ("Song Sketch") with an acoustic guitar and voice, for example.
Additional possibilities via USB

The BR-800 has a USB port allowing you to connect to a computer. If you connect the BR-800 to a computer, it can serve as a USB audio interface for recordings that utilize the internal effects. In addition, the BR-800 can serve as a control surface for your station software digital audio workstation.

UTILIZATION

The configuration is not easy for a novice, many parameters must be taken into account, many sub menus are available.
The multitrack has many effects guitar / vocals / bass, an all-in-one is a good asset for those who often move. The effects are usable, however the settings is quite complicated and the result is not necessarily in the appointment.

SOUNDS

Converters are good for the price, do not ask too much either.
Indeed, taking voice sounds are good enough for the guitar after all this will also depend on the effects that it brings. Finally, for the low, low frequencies are a bit messy.

The effects are so good quality Boss but pretty basic. I strongly advice to a multi-quality effects upstream (other than personal Boss).

OVERALL OPINION

I got 3 months, I amused myself with a little but I quickly dropped to highlight a sound card that is better.
Issue price / quality ratio, I would say it is a good compromise for those who have a small budget and wants to have fun making small models.

If you have the budget, do yourself a favor (especially in this occasion is relatively not excessive). However, if you have the means, go your way.
