What we say:
The Boss BR-800 is a powerful and portable multitrack recorder that is simple to use and full of features.
You can record up to four tracks simultaneously, with eight tracks available in total for you to record on, as well as a further stereo track for the excellent drum programming available! COSM modelling provides a myriad of amps and effects to allow you to plug an electric guitar directly into the unit and dial up a BOSS-quality professional tone to record with.
The BR-800 has a built-in stereo mic to allow you to record directly into the unit without the need for any external mics. There is also an E-Z record function to get you out of the starting blocks and running straight away with very little effort. It's a very good feature for beginners!
The BR-800 is a handy unit to carry around in your gig bag or case. There is so much on board here to turn your simple idea into something much more like a studio quality song! It's intuitive to use and the recording quality is excellent.
SpecificationBOSS continues its top-selling tradition of portable, affordable multi-track recorders with the new BR-800, a battery powered studio to go.

Enhance your recordings with the powerful BOSS effects onboard the BR-800. 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 GT-10 series and modelled acoustic guitar body effects from the Martin AP-1 preamp, which imparts pro-quality miced-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 device, and how great the effects sound.

The BR-800’s USB compatibility enables a variety of functionality with your computer. Connected to a PC, the BR-800 will function as a USB audio interface for recordings that utilise the internal effects. The BR-800 can also function as a control surface for DAW software.
