[Musikmesse] Boss Micro BR BR-80
Boss announces the MICRO BR BR-80 Digital Recorder, an updated version of the MICRO BR multi-track recorder.
With an eight-track upgrade, the latest Boss guitar and vocal effects, built-in rhythms, onboard stereo mics, jamming and practice features from the Boss eBand JS-8, and a Live Record mode that turns the BR-80 into a stereo handheld field recorder, the BR-80 is designed for guitarists, songwriters, and musicians.
The newest MICRO BR fits in a pocket and offers two tracks of simultaneous WAV-format recording, eight tracks of playback, and 64 virtual tracks for editing and mixdown.
Stereo condenser mics are built in for up to 500 hours of recording time (with optional 32 GB SDHC card) for capturing song ideas and rehearsals. Also included are dedicated inputs for connecting a guitar, a microphone, or any stereo line-level device.
Onboard the BR-80 are COSM guitar and bass effects, dedicated vocal effects derived from the VE-20 Vocal Performer, and a suite of mastering effects.
The BR-80 has a complement of backing rhythm tracks in a variety of musical styles. The rhythms feature drum and percussion sounds and are organised into patterns designed for use in different song sections.
The BR-80 also offers a set of features for music practice and jamming. eBand mode provides a library of backing tracks and rhythm patterns to play along with, and users can import their own WAV or MP3 songs.
Variable speed playback, variable pitch, and A-B Repeat features enable players to learn riffs and practise songs in different keys and tempos. In addition, the Centre Cancel function allows users to minimise the sound of guitar solos and vocals in pre-recorded tracks.
A USB port lets musicians use the BR-80 as an audio interface with effects for computer-based recording, and also to import and export WAV and MP3 audio tracks. Software is bundled with the BR-80, including Cakewalk's SONAR X1 LE, the eBand Song List Editor, and the BR Wave Converter.
