Product Description

From a Legacy of Portable and Affordable Multi-trackers; Boss Offers the BR800!
A complete, portable music-production solution, Boss' BR800 continues its top-selling tradition of compact, easy to use multi-tracking. Able to run on 6 AA batteries, the BR800 is literally a studio to go. The sleek, thin design is made possible by touch-sensor switches and SD-card recording media.

Record up to four tracks simultaneously and listen back to all eight tracks at once, not to mention the additional stereo track that has been dedicated to the built-in rhythm generator. Powerful onboard effects processing on the BR800 includes GT10/10B effects, VE20 vocal effects and harmonies, and COSM-based acoustic-guitar body modeling; while the EZ Recording feature interactively guides through the recording process. The built-in stereo microphone allows the user to record an instant Song Sketch to keep fresh ideas recorded for future tampering.

EZ Recording
Whether you're creating intricate, multi-layered songs or point-and-capture field recordings, the BR800 makes the recording process fast and easy. Beginners will love the EZ Recording mode that interactively guides you through the recording process. Other helpful features include the convenient Retry function, which recues automatically to fix mistakes, and Song Sketch recording for instant, one-touch capture. There’s also a built-in stereo condenser microphone plus a DR880-quality rhythm generator for adding drum and percussion tracks to your songs.

Pro Effects
Enhance your recordings with the powerful Boss effects onboard the BR800. Many of the effects are derived from Boss's flagship processors, including vocal effects from the VE-20, COSM guitar/bass amps and effects from the GT10 series, modeled acoustic-guitar body effects from the AP-1 preamp, which imparts pro-quality miked-up sound and rich body tone to line-recorded acoustic guitar. You'll be amazed at how much processing power is built into this little recorder, and how excellent the effects sound.

You can power the BR800 from the included AC adaptor, or, for ultimate mobility, it can be powered from six AA batteries. Record anywhere! Stereo microphones are also built into the BR800 for instant Song Sketch recordings - great for capturing song ideas (acoustic guitar and vocals, for example) from any location.

USB Enhanced
The BR800's USB compatibility enables a variety of functionality with computers. Connected to a PC, the BR800 will function as a USB audio interface for recordings that utilize the internal effects. The BR800 can also function as a control surface for DAW software.

Perfect multi tool for guitarist
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
The BR800 is the perfect tool for a guitarist. The interface is so easy to use and understandable that is using it within 10 minutes. I did not purchase this to use to do recordings. I use it to learn songs by importing and recording mp3s and looping sections of solos to learn. You can also slow the recording down while maintaining original pitch. Also the onboarding boss amp models and effects are amazing. I have also downloaded naked guitar tracks online and recorded the guitar parts myself to make sure I have them

The only way to go!
Heavy duty ABS is great too many have cheesey plastic, The fact that the toch keys are sealed againts coffee, beer etc; is a big plus.
More Variety in the drum patches. I have yet to find any machine like this that will give you a straight 4/4 or 3/4 time,
Even though it is made in Japan, the manual was not only easy to understand but the index was right on the money. For old guys like me, that's important.
Only hadit a month so far. But the way it's built says it will weather the storm.
Your general opinion of this product.
Biggest Bang for the buck and it even has Sonar LE software.

Your general opinion of this product.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone that wants to make decent quality demos in their bedroom.

Great recorder with super effects
Seems pretty good but there is a concern for the touch controls and long term durability.
The guitar effects. Hands down. Second the drum machine.
It's pretty easy to get started. For someone who has experience with multitrack could hit the ground running. I had zero experience but in a few hours was recording some fun tracks.
Very good.
N/A I have had it for 4 days.
Your general opinion of this product.
I think this will be a tool that can make a difference to any musician by advancing their ability. If a picture is worth a thousand words hearing yourself is worth ten times that.

fatastic, worth a lot more
its fantastic, the touch surface is really cool, the menu is absolutely navigatable once you get your bearings, and the cosm effects are awesome! i'm a tube kinda guy and i went direct in and i was completely awestruck by the tonal qualities this produced.
took a second, i like to learn it by playing with it (aka, the hard way, in this case, the VERY hard way lol) but all in all it took about 30min.
incredible, almost unbelieveable.
only had it a few days, but its boss so no worries there
Your general opinion of this product.

Ideal for quick song ideas with the ability to do much more...
"All in one" recording solutions. Good efx, good sound quality, easy use.
Very easy to use although the manual could be more informative.
Too early to tell. I have used Boss gear for years, though, without any problems.
Your general opinion of this product.
Excellent recording value
