Boss Micro BR-80
The Boss Micro BR-80 has 3 simple modes to it, a multi track recorder, eBand and live recording functions. It will record directly to your memory card that can only hold up to 32 GB which for some artist may not be enough for what they need. The library of built in sounds for backing instrumentals are pretty good for the money you pay for this device. There is also a built in condenser microphone that will allow you to capture ok quality audio no matter where you are. I would not rely on this microphone though, but it can be great if you just want to record something quality if you are out and about and happen to have your BR-80 with you.
You can play back up to 8 tracks simultaneously, in this small unit you will have all of the major functions that you need to have a small set up. All of the sounds and even the drums are pretty decent with this unit. You can even edit the drums on the BR-80.
The downfall to me on this unit is that the output volume is not very good. Even when using with headphones, I have a lot of great pears of headphones and no matter which ones that I use with the BR-80 the audio is not very loud and if you turn it all the way up; it affects the quality big time. I am not sure what the issue is but maybe that is what you get for the price of a simple recorder.
Though I do not recommend getting this if you are looking for it to be your main recording source, but I do recommend getting it for a back up or if you are a record on the go type of musician who may be out and about and wants to record something on the fly. In that case you will have a decent studio on you at all times.

Originally purchased to quickly record ideas, quiet play (following the arrival of a baby in the house) and to be able to record my rhythm to bosser ranges, this small device fulfills its role very well! Since I use it almost every day.

It's strong manufacturing and sounds are good but do not hesitate to go edit the effect parameters used for those registered base does not necessarily correspond to your guitar or your tastes. These parameters are enough to change your sound. Ability to save your belongings.

The basic rhythms are sufficient to quickly create rhythms.
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of embedded microphones (following the bad reviews we read here and there ...) but it is true that we should no noise around because they capture everything!

- Ergonomics because of a few small buttons and menus that must go ... the price to pay to make the portable device in any wallet Case guitar.
- The screen a bit small and seems straight out of a past not so distant after all ... but considering the price and features offered ...

In short, a nice little device that will complement a computer music solution. Do not expect to save the tube century on it, but if you want something that allows you to bosser Register everywhere and this is certainly what you need ....

Mr.viv's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A perfect resort for bosser his guitar!"

Boss Micro BR-80
I had this week, I explored its features, knowing that I already knew the EBAND function since I was a JS8 before.

I sold my JS8 few years ago and I wanted to buy me one today because I realized just how useful it was to me to work my instrument .. (Professional)

After research, when I learned that the BR 80 had the same functions as eBand JS8 but had the size of a large smartphone and could run on batteries I have not tried, I have finally led to this model that overcharged JS8/10. Less bulky, can play in the backstage with headphones, no need AC outlet .. perfect.

The finish is very good and solid, it is super lightweight and fits easily into a guitar case.

At the eBand function and guitar sounds they do not have to blush! I use Eleven Rack on stage and bosser home on this little device does not have any problem, it is even the first time I see the factory presets that sound good on this type of device! The edition of presets is intuitive, many effects available, it is very good.

[contrary to what was said in another comment (ordurieux and little objective) distos are unusable if a little paufine its settings, tested and approved on a guitar ... € 300. (but this comment has no value so the author has discredited having fun in the copy / paste in comments on all videos br80 on canvas) it may be that the guitar peak slightly (the one day ' peakait have used a little because it is equipped with emg steve lukather), you just need to lower the "record volume" of the guitar input, not decrease the volume of cab or amplifier as said in another comment ..]

In addition, the "Center Cancel" function to remove guitar from a song track works very well overall. (A mention of live tracks, but studios pieces ca going well in general)

Ditto for the idle, to transcribe or work a little too fast solo function, it does not damage the piece.

Function A> B looper quickly part of a song is also very easy to use. (on the other hand it does not work on the MTR, it works on eBand)

I once used the MTR function to discover the possibilities of the device before writing this review, the function itself is very easy to use, the only downside is if you need to remove a portion of a guitar track a specific timer because there is no visibility on its tracks and recordings, it takes more or less set the timer to the second pressure to cut or you want and ditto for the timer cutting finishing ..

I advise people to rebuild their decision overcharged that take the lead in placing the battery timer stuck at that ..

Regarding the live rec I do not yet have not served as a good acoustic guitar record, but I've seen the video of a guy who plays the dobro and singing that make good microphones. To see what happens at home ..

For options that do not serve me, but it is worth mentioning the effects of voice, harmonies, compression or modulation (can plug a microphone into the guitar / mic input In, there is a switch to choose between the impedance of a guitar or a microphone, thinking has provided a jack / XLR adapter for micro) and even effects and a bass amp for our friends.

There is also a line input in to send a keyboard among others there ..

I am very happy with this purchase, I do not think I'd be as happy, it is a perfect platform to really work ..
