Boss Micro BR delivers digital multi-track recording right into the palm of your hand. Boss Micro BR must rank as one of the World’s smallest Studios, featuring 4-track digital recording, plus an unbelievable 32 virtual tracks. Recording onto SD cards (128MB included) Micro BR is a dream for musicians on the go.
Boss have managed to cram an unreal feature set into Micro BR. In addition to four simultaneous playback tracks Micro BR also features onboard multi-effects, built-in rhythm patterns, a tuner, MP3 compatibility, USB, and more. The centre cancelling feature even lets you drop out your favourite lead line, so you can take centre stage! No guitar case or gig bag should be without one!
Boss Micro BR is so small you can put it in your pocket! Measuring just 136.0mm x 81.0 mm x 21.4 mm (5-3/8" x3-3/16" x 7/8"), MicroBR is not much bigger than an iPod. But even though it’s a shrimp, the Micro BR packs an entire studio worth of features into its tiny case. There are a dozen buttons on its front panel, nine knobs, and even a built-in microphone for quick capture.
At its core, the Boss Micro BR is a four-track studio with four simultaneous playback tracks and two simultaneous record / input tracks. However, there’s more to this recorder than meets the eye. Each of the four main playback tracks also has eight companion V-Tracks (for a total of 32), so you can record take after take after take, then pick your best material for final mixdown.
Given the Micro BR’s small size and low price, you might be surprised to find the next two features onboard: (1) Almost 300 drum patterns are included.Use them for play-along inspiration or even as song foundations. The rhythms don’t consume any of the four playback tracks - they play back independently. (2) A quality multi-effects processor is built into the MICRO BR for enhancing your recordings and for creative experimentation. Amp modeling, compressor, delay... they're all here. And if you want to change the tempo of your MP3 audio without changing pitch (great for phrase training), you can apply the MICRO BR's Time Stretch effect to MP3 or WAV file playback. In addition, MICRO BR's Center Cancel feature can be applied to MP3/ WAV file playback, which helps minimize the vocal or lead-guitar track on pre-recorded songs for play-along style practice or performance.
There are no moving parts inside the Boss Micro BR. It’s a road-tough, memory-card-based digital recorder. The recording media of choice is the internationally recognized SD (Secure Digital) Card, which can be easily found in electronics shops that sell digital cameras. One tiny SD Card can store your sessions. The included 128MB card, for example, can record approximately 65 minutes of audio with with one mono track selected.
