Upcoming DJs or entertainment experimenters who love editing, cropping, recording, or adding special effects to their favorite tunes may sound delighted with this bit of news. Boss has recently come up with a new digital recorder which is said to be a portable battery powered studio, the BR-800. The sleek offering has the capability of recording up to four tracks or can play up to eight tracks simultaneously.
The recording process becomes a cinch with this device even if users are creating complicated, multi-layered songs or point-and-capture field recordings. A new EZ recording mode interactively guides users through the recording process making it easy for beginners.
To offer users more convenient options, the BR-800 equips Retry function that automatically fixes mistakes by re-cueing the track, and the Song Sketch recording which enables users one-touch, instant capture of tunes. A DR-880-quality rhythm generator adds drum and percussion tracks to users’ songs providing more depth in those tunes.
Integrated effects by Boss including vocal effects, COSM guitar/bass effects, and modeled acoustic-guitar body effects that convey pro-quality miced-up sound and rich body tone to line-recorded acoustic guitar have also been bundled in the device.
Users can effortlessly charge the device with in AC adaptor in addition to charging from six AA batteries for enhanced portability. Besides, when the BR-800 is connected to a PC, it will function as an USB audio interface for recordings which uses the internal effects plus it can also be used as a control surface for DAW software. The device equips an integrated stereo condenser microphone which is offered as an additional option to record without any trouble.
