Party in Your Pocket: Boss Micro BR BR-80 Digital Recorder

Boss recently announced the arrival of its new Micro BR BR-80 Digital Recorder, which is an update of the company's Micro BR multitrack recorder.

The first Micro BR, which was launched in 2006, offered pro-quality multitracking in a handheld device only slightly larger than an iPod. The new BR-80 builds on that foundation with an eight-track upgrade, the latest Boss guitar and vocal effects, built-in rhythms, on-board stereo mics, jamming and practice features from Boss' eBand JS-8, and a Live Record mode that turns the BR-80 into a stereo handheld field recorder.

Key Features:
Three modes: MTR (multi-track recorder), eBand, and Live Rec
Records directly to SD/SDHC memory card (up to 32 GB)
High-quality stereo condenser microphone built in for instant audio capture
64 V-Tracks and eight simultaneous playback tracks
eBand function for phrase training and play-along tracks
Library of built-in backing and rhythm patterns
COSM amps and effects onboard
Use as a USB audio interface with built-in effects
Sonar X1 LE software included

The suggested retail price for the BR-80 is $299. For more info go to
