Product Description

Small enough to fit in your pocket, the Boss Micro BR BR-80 is the ultimate portable recording and jam-along tool for guitarists and other musicians. It's equipped with three modes to create, record, and perform your music: an eight-track MTR (Multi-Track Recorder) mode; an eBand mode for onstage backing tracks and phrase training; and a Live Rec mode for instantly capturing high-quality stereo recordings. You can even combine the three modes seamlessly. Record your phrase ideas using Live Rec mode, for example, and then import the recordings into MTR mode to use as foundations for song production. Once you've added tracks, import your finished songs into eBand mode for backing-track accompaniment at the gig. The Boss Micro BR BR-80 is truly a must-have for all musicians!

This video from Boss showcases the features of the powerful BR-80:


Boss Micro BR BR-80 Recorder Features

- Three modes: MTR (multi-track recorder), eBand, and Live Rec
- Records directly to SD/SDHC memory card (up to 32 GB)
- High-quality stereo condenser microphone built in for instant audio capture
- 64 V-Tracks and eight simultaneous playback tracks
- eBand function for phrase training and play-along tracks
- Huge library of built-in backing and rhythm patterns
- World-class COSM(R) amps and effects onboard
- Use as a USB audio interface with built-in effects
- Sonar X1 LE software included

The Complete Studio To Go

Don't be fooled by its size -- this little studio is loaded! The MTR (Multi-Track Recorder) mode offers 64 V-Tracks with eight simultaneous playback tracks. In addition, a dedicated stereo rhythm track is provided, as well as an onboard library of great grooves to choose from. The intuitive user-interface continues the simple-to-use tradition of Boss' acclaimed BR series, with a graphical design that follows the layout of a conventional recording console. With EQ, reverb, and mastering tools plus, world-class COSM amps and effects for guitar, bass, and vocals the Micro BR BR-80 is ready to deliver complete, pro-quality recordings with ease.

Virtual Jam Band

The Boss MICRO BR BR-80's eBand mode offers musicians a fun way to play along with their favorite songs. With the bundled eBand Song List Editor software, you can import CD, MP3, and WAV audio files from a computer via USB. The Center Cancel function can be used to minimize the volume of pre-recorded vocals and solos for play- and sing-along enjoyment. eBand mode is also an excellent partner for musical training, as it lets you record your performance adjust playback speed and/or pitch as desired.

Built-In Stereo Mic

In combination with the onboard high-grade stereo condenser microphones, the Boss Micro BR BR-80's Live Rec mode lets you capture pristine stereo recordings instantly. Record vocals, guitar parts, and song ideas the moment inspiration strikes. Your recorded audio files can be easily imported into the Boss Micro BR BR-80's MTR mode to use as a basis for multi-track song production.

High-Quality Multi FX

The Boss Micro BR BR-80 is packed with professional multi-effects powered by a custom DSP chip. Over 40 types of COSM amp models give you instant access to a wide range of powerful guitar and bass sounds. The preset patches allow first-timers and pros alike to enjoy high-quality sounds immediately, while power users can tweak parameters in micro detail for the ultimate tonal control. The dedicated vocal effects, comparable with Boss's popular VE-20, include doubling, harmony effects, pitch correction, and more.

PC Companion

The ultra-flexible Micro BR BR-80 can be used as a stand-alone digital recorder or as audio interface for a USB-equipped computer. Cakewalk's Sonar X1 LE DAW software (for Windows) is bundled with the Micro BR BR-80, giving users a full-fledged PC-based music production environment with latency-free recording and a powerful range of COSM amps and effects. Furthermore, the bundled Wave Converter software lets you easily exchange data between the Micro BR BR-80 and Sonar X1 LE or any other DAW.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Boss Micro BR BR 80 Digital Recorder"
Overall: It might be a nice recorder, but I could not figure out how to use the thing. I read the book and watched some U-Tube instruction videos, but it just did not work for me. I sent it back. zZounds was great about the return. I will buy from them again.
Style of Music: All kinds, just depends on my mood

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
