    Opportunities connectors compltes enough: two microphone inputs (XLR and 1 jack one), one between instruments, between a line in RCA, 1 x RCA, 1 digital output, a USB port, an outlet noon, 1 headphone, 1 jack PDAL of CONTRL.

    the device also has a micro Intgr for recording instruments "sound", in which case, we have the same default on a common magntophone, that he must avoid background noise indsirable.

    Opportunities connectors compltes enough: two microphone inputs (XLR and 1 jack one), one between instruments, between a line in RCA, 1 x RCA, 1 digital output, a USB port, an outlet noon, 1 headphone, 1 jack PDAL of CONTRL.

    COSM effects (the same as the twin PDAL boss and multi-effects) Intgr (voice effects, guitar, bass and to record from other sources (Cd. .) for example, to change the mix).
    So, we Discover who the full range of effects of boss + amp simulators and prampli. We can therefore find its aisment close to that we used to use, just by plugging your guitar on the br864.

    backups of your masterpieces are on compact flash cards: this, that it should prciser to record a number of things, it takes at least a 256MB card, score card when in the same 50 euros;

    personally, since I have the device (since a year and a half), I bought 2 in addition to the 128MB that came with the device, this is trs dernire quickly filled, because s it is prcis it can hold 1 hour of recording, one must take into account the fact that it is 1 hour for all runs: for example, I thought by buying the machine " owl, an hour, I'll be able to record a dozen songs! "error, unless you use one track per song. If you use Fully 4 tracks for a piece of 4 minutes, this one will not 4 minutes on the card, but 16! thus, the space is quite limited especially as the cards come back soon dear!

    you can record two channels at once and read simultanment 8. Note that each of the eight tracks has 64 virtual tracks is to say that if you give a track a guitar solo, you will be able to save multiple versions of each virtual track, one that can only be read both . However, this increases Systm all of the same recording capabilities, including if you rebalance the content of your compound in the computer.

    UTILIZATION

    Easy and intuitive. Recording "basic" is very easy;

    on the other hand, there are a number of menus and ability to change tracks: reading the manual I think s'avre need to master a wide range of possibilities of the machine;

    said the manual is quite clear throughout. APRS, some knowledge requires optional sound system, including all matters relating to the mastering effects and all applicable (many with names paramtres incomprhensibles for novices like myself, even if an explanation, Figure sufficient I think of each effect can be a vague ide. The best is yet to hack and get an ide ear, even if some modifications are hardly noticeable, unless, as I said, to have sound knowledge in Prior.

    In any case, the possibilities seem standard for such a small machine!

    SOUNDS

    The effects are pretty good quality, although a little cold. my amp does not have a line out, I plug the guitar directly into the boss, and I use the internal sounds to register. one can easily find his close to his.

    however, the rhythm box sound rotten, really too synthetic (in addition to n'tre not super comfortable progamme).

    In any case, the sound is rsultats nickels, if only one properly adjusts the knobs and rglage qualisations indpendantes for each track.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 1 year and a half, and he rendered great service to me as rfractaire computer. it is a good alternative (or complment) Cubase and other software.

    Its recording quality and possibility for saving stuff for a correct model.

    For musicians playing alone, it is a convenient way to refine his compositions.

    I pay 490 euros, and I find the report qualitpossibilits / price really INTERESTED. I no hsiter Rasht, especially since it can, since I play in groups, to register rpeter through the mixer (rglages attention to the coup, more rgler difficult; careful balance the sound!).

    for example of use, I joined a group that had a dj dmo: I balance the br864 and I recorded over with the internal effects. I find your exact stunning, it looks like it was recorded together!

    ngatif one point: it is difficult to matriser all the subtleties and possibilities of the machine, especially with regard the "mastering"; Knowledge of sound may be welcome.
