Boss Unleashes BR-800 – Portable Multitrack Recorder
BOSS has unleashed the BR-800, a portable, battery-powered multitrack studio. The 800 features touch-sensor switches, SD-card recording media and four tracks of simultaneous recording.
Whether you’re creating full songs or point-and-capture field recordings, the BR-800 makes the recording process fast and easy. Beginners will love the new EZ Recording mode that interactively guides you through the recording process. Other helpful features include the convenient RETRY function, which re-cues automatically to fix mistakes, SONG SKETCH recording for instant, one-touch capture, and eight tracks of simultaneous play back. There’s also a built-in stereo condenser microphone, plus a DR-880-quality rhythm generator for adding drum and percussion tracks to your songs.
Enhance your recordings with the onboard BOSS effects, many of which are derived from BOSS’ processors, including vocal effects from the VE-20, COSM guitar/bass effects from the GT-10 series, and modeled acoustic-guitar body effects from the AP-1 preamp.
You can power the BR-800 from the included AC adaptor, or for ultimate mobility, it can be powered from six AA batteries. The BR-800’s USB compatibility enables a variety of functionality with computers. Connected to a PC, the BR-800 will function as an USB audio interface for recordings that utilize the internal effects. The BR-800 can also function as a control surface for DAW software.
The Boss BR-800 will be available in May for $525. More information on the Boss BR-800.
