The Boss Micro BR
The world's smallest pro studio

By Robert Morton

Printer-Friendly Version

Multi-track digital recorders are shrinking in size, with more and more features being packed into palm-sized footprints. Only slightly larger than an iPod, the Boss BR is a traveling musicians dream; offering four simultaneous playback tracks (plus 32 V-Tracks), onboard multi-effects, built-in rhythm patterns, a tuner, a USB port for data transfer and an SD Card slot.

The Micro BR measures only 5 3/8" (L) x 3 3/16" (W) x 7/8" (H), and packs an entire studio worth of features into a compact case that you can easily fit into your pocket. The front panel of this unit provides an easy-to-read display, twelve buttons, nine knobs, and a built-in microphone for capturing audio on the fly. This versatile recorder powers via two "AA" batteries and is equipped with a stereo line/microphone input, a 1/4" guitar input and a 1/8" stereo headphone output.

The Micro BR includes 293 built-in rhythm patterns for playing along with or incorporating into your songs. Rhythms play back independently without using any of the four playback tracks for audio. It also includes a powerful onboard multi-effects processor with a time-stretch algorithm for changing the tempo of your audio tracks without changing pitch (a great tool for both audio editing and phrase training).

This tiny-yet-powerful digital recorder can be used as a standard MP3 player. Learning your favorite tunes is easy with this unit, just load up your favorite song via USB, slow down the tempo without changing the pitch and your on your way. Data is stored on convenient SD media, and the Micro BR includes a 128MB card that can record approximately 65 minutes of audio (when one mono track is selected). See chart below for recording times using different size SD cards.
