    Comments about Boss BR-1200CD - 12-Track Workstation Recorder:

    I just bought this a week ago, and am in the learning phase,as it as a bit more complex than the BR900CD I was using. So far, I've been using this with my Yamaha PS r700 arranger keyboard(also bought at B&H) to create accompaniment tracks for the saxophone duet I'm a part of, [@], as well as some other things later.The BR1200CD is just the right size for one or two musicians. As far as the negative,I believe this might have been a display model, as there are a few minor cosmetic flaws, but very minor at that-I bought it to use, not look at.
