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 ..

How long have you been using?

The past 15 days.
What is so special that you like most and least?
THE great side is that any on hand, both multi-effects, looper, recording studio .. he can do anything ...
Did you try many other models before buying it?
This is my first in this style ... I had an old Tascam 464 before, but it was a different time ... In fact, I was left on my V-amp2 with a Boss RC 3, but with the BR 80, I have everything in hand, for the home, it is the foot ...
How do you rate the quality / price?

It's cheap, but it can do everything, so it will, for against the small silicone shell and the cover will not hurt for the same price ... but I've already made the offer with Alim headphone and it's something ;)

With experience, you do again this choice? ...

Yes no please .. for those like me who play at home is ideal. And at least it does not take place ... is lady who is happy ;)

philrud's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" 10 tracks in 13x8 cm: Engineering!"

Boss Micro BR-80
I received it today. This is my first digital multitrack (out of my software) Take some precautions when installing the driver first with PC.Ne especially not move files Boss.Ne not use splitters USB.Il told me "being installed" when it was already installed (the driver) then it is (almost) a breeze.

Contrary to what has been said, you can cut the internal mics and "recorder" a line in external simply lowering the wheel "record".
Pc file as read on the Boss import the sound is excellent even in mp3.
Quality of its internal mics: very very good exept a small bump to 10-13kHz if it is too close to the mic's not bad, can catch up.
Breath internal mics = very poor when good settings.
Headphone power: too low for me, but I knew it before ... It's not typical Boss is portable and should not consume too much battery, I think about it.

Portability side: excellent! Finally two sides are coated without buttons or her hand without risking any adjustment.
Quality buttons: at first I was afraid, 2 button did not "click" by pressing it and finally it runs well, including wheel: still not over grind, it is small.

Access menus: at the beginning, we try a little, we read the manual, then enters the philosophy Boss finally we understand how it works: "two fingers in the noise." So no worries navigation not need be captain.
The look: I love and I love it. Saying there are the biggest who do not ... more
I said 10 tracks, because 8 mono + stereo internal rhythm box = 10.
Many mastering effect, plenty of choice of rhythm, bass-midle-treble/reverbe track, short "the little monster handsome as an angel" is complet.Il are tracks, virtual, the bounce, we can free tracks: Just remember manipulation ...
The price may seem expensive, but thinking there are others that are no more (and sometimes less) in a larger size, so less portable.

Finally, it is too "core", there is a hidden genius in its 114.75 cm ² and I suffer for him (engineering), there is not much space. Course, I hesitate for a second to take the Boss BR 80 portatif.Reste material to make me hand over yet, because the possibilities are inversely as large as its size tends "liliputienne." Congratulations Boss and Roland, because there are programs (algorithms) Roland inside: the Genius!

Boss Micro BR-80
I use it for a month of little fawn regularly, but due to time constraints.
This is the first recorder I possde, trs is compact and is a positive point trs, the default for now is the size of the two wheels that are latrales too small.
trs good value quality price, I am satisfied and I remake that choice.
