Product Description

Built in microphones, multi-track recording, jam along tracks and so much more! The Boss Micro BR-80 Portable Digital Recorder is the ultimate pocket-sized recording and jam-along tool for guitarists and other musicians. The Micro BR-80 is equipped with three modes to create, record, and perform your music: an 8-track 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 with the BR-80. Record your phrase ideas using Live Rec mode, for example, and then import the recordings into Multi Track Recorder 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. Musicians of all types can find a use for the Boss Micro BR-80!

Record vocals, guitar parts, and song ideas the moment inspiration strikes. Your recorded audio files can be easily imported into the Micro BR-80’s Multi Track Recorder mode to use as a basis for multi-track song production.

High-Quality Multi FX
The Micro BR-80 is packed with professional multi-effects powered by a newly developed custom DSP chip. Over 40 types of Boss 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.

I love it.

Product Review

It does work with windows ten. The other review on here must be old. This thing is great. I use it everyday. It is the perfect practice tool. Want to learn a song just record it,you can slow it down speed it up.change the pitch. Loop it.theres a drum machine on board and a metronome. It comes with jam trcks.But i recorded over 300 from free backing so i can plug in put my headphones on and jam all day. And it lets me record my guitar over the backing track and it sounds great. If your learning a song in a diffrent tuning you can just change the song to match your guitar instead tuning to the song,and it saves a lot of time. Over 150 presets and you can save anouther 100 your self. Its also a multi track recorder that sounds just as good as the br800. And its a field recorder. So if your learning to play or you just want a great tool to jam private with a ton of options. You cant go wrong. I had this for over a year i use it everyday and im still finding new ways to use it.

Used to be a great unit now a brick since Windows 10

Product Review

I travel around the world all the time and used to find this was a very versatile albeit slightly not user friendly Swiss Army knife. It used to sound great but now its unuseable since it does not connect to Windows 10. Roland are giving me the run around saying they are working to update some of their products to Windows 10. They point me to a website that lists Roland gear but this BR80 is not even on that list. So now 2 months after Windows 10 official release and 2 years since they started their Beta program so that these things would not happen I own an expensive brick. So I am currently extremely disappointed in Roland.

Great device for getting ideas down!

Review: KEVIN S. from bridgepot, ct usa Submitted: 10/6/2012

Product Rating5 out of 5 stars.


A full size studio in your hand

yes this item feels like it can take some bumps and bounce right back

i own the boss gt10 and this is just a little version of this pedal board, but with recording and drum samples galore!!!!

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

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

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

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

very well made

butt load of high quality effects

mega easy to get comfortable with

the sound is fantastic.

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

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!

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.

The backing track sold me first and formost...all the tracks that are found in the E-Band are 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 you know exactly what your recording!

Once you read through the's easy as pie. The interface is well thought out and when searching for songs, backing tracks, and's file structure is awesome!

Tone is outta this 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 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;)

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;)

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 can't go wrong
