Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? yes this item feels like it can take some bumps and bounce right back Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? i own the boss gt10 and this is just a little version of this pedal board, but with recording and drum samples galore!!!! Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? i never ever ever read the books that things come with and i thought i would have to for this but nope i played around with it for 20-30min and i got the gist of it down Sound How is the tone? the sounds of the drums in this are cool and you can re-shape them. the sounds of all the guitars amps and sims are just like the gt10 if anything maybe they lack just like 5% of the true sound but make sure to get the best out of it use good headphones i use my br80 paired with the studio beats by dre Reliability How has it stood up over time? only had it for about a week but its doing good so far and if its anything like the gt10 it will sand the test of time General Your general opinion of this product. best recorder i have ever seen. you can lay down full tracks with millions of layers. i use this to write full songs for a project im working on so when i present it there is no guess work at all to do.
all you need

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? very well made Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? butt load of high quality effects Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? mega easy to get comfortable with Sound How is the tone? the sound is fantastic. Reliability How has it stood up over time? only had it a month or so but I have the previous 4 track version of the micro br. I've had that one for 5 years at least and it still works like a charm General Your general opinion of this product. excellent for catching ideas and working out song structure. If you can't write a song on this you probably can't write a song at all.
Amazing!!!! Best fun in a small package!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The bottons and dial feel very well made. The unit is actually mainly made of metal and only uses plastic for doors, faceplate, and accent pieces. Button presses are great...the dial is ok...but I think they could do better with a roller on the horizontal like a mouse wheel but wider with more of a tactle click or notch. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The backing track sold me first and formost...all the tracks that are found in the E-Band are inside...plus a few I downloaded from the website to teach riffs with backing tracks. The recording is top notch...punching in and editing tracks is waaaay easier than some other portable recorders out there. The multitude of options in this thing is amazing! The built in mics do an excellent job of capturing both you and your guitar. The cool thing is you can monitor through head phones at the same time...so you know exactly what your recording! Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Once you read through the manual...it's easy as pie. The interface is well thought out and when searching for songs, backing tracks, and tones...it's file structure is awesome! Sound How is the tone? Tone is outta this world...lol...I play through a PA for gigs, or a set of headphones and in some cases an iPod dock. Let me tell you...the unit selects a base sound with the track...you can turn this feature on or off...I programmed a few of my own sounds and this thing is no joke. I also own the Boss GT-10...this uses some of the effects and models from this board, and they are identical! Very pleased for something you can stick in a cargo pocket;) Reliability How has it stood up over time? Just got the thing July 14th...played a few open mic nights and jammed in the hotels. Not enough time on it yet...but I think it will be fine;) General Your general opinion of this product. Incredible sounds thanks to the COSM models and the effects are very customizable, the backing tracks are great and feel like your jammig with a band...not the old midi garbage. For the money...you can't go wrong
