Boss BR-800 Digital Multitrack Recorder
The BOSS BR-800 is a great tool for the musician or producer who wants to flesh out song ideas with a device that can easily sit in their own lap. You can record up to four tracks at the same time, and a total of eight tracks are able to be played back. In addition, there is also a dedicated stereo rhythm track that is powered by a built-in advanced drum machine that comes with its own editor software. Speaking of software, it’s easy to connect the BR-800 to a computer via USB, at which point it can transform into an audio interface and DAW control surface. As one might expect from a product stemming from the BOSS family tree, the BR-800 is also equipped with a slew of guitar, bass, and vocal effects that can be found in many of the company’s other effects pedals.
