Boss BR-800 Digital Recorder Now Available

Battery-Powered Studio To Go

BOSS® continues its top-selling tradition of portable, affordable multi-trackers with the new BR-800 Digital Recorder (, a battery-powered studio to go. The sleek new design is made possible by touch-sensor switches and SD-card recording media. Up to four tracks can be recorded or eight tracks played back simultaneously, plus an additional stereo track dedicated to the built-in rhythm generator.

Whether you’re creating intricate, multi-layered songs or point-and-capture field recordings, the BR-800 makes the recording process fast and easy. Beginners will love the new EZ Recording mode that interactively guides you through the recording process. Other helpful features include the convenient RETRY function, which re-cues automatically to fix mistakes, and SONG SKETCH recording for instant, one-touch capture. There’s also a built-in stereo condenser microphone, plus a DR-880-quality rhythm generator for adding drum and percussion tracks to your songs.

Enhance your recordings with the powerful BOSS effects onboard the BR-800. Many of the effects are derived from BOSS’ flagship processors, including vocal effects from the VE-20, COSM® guitar/bass effects from the GT-10 series, and modeled acoustic-guitar body effects from the 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 recorder, and how excellent the effects sound.

You can power the BR-800 from the included AC adaptor, or for ultimate mobility, it can be powered from six AA batteries. Record anywhere! The BR-800’s USB compatibility enables a variety of functionality with computers. Connected to a PC, the BR-800 will function as an USB audio interface for recordings that utilize the internal effects. The BR-800 can also function as a control surface for DAW software.

The BR-800 will be a great multi-track recorder for beginners and pros alike. The portability and simplicity makes it great for the songwriter on the go who wants to create some better sounding recordings than you may get with your handy recorder. The processing effects and 4-track simultaneous recording abilities make this recorder a great starter rig for any aspiring engineer.

No matter where you roam, you’ll never miss a moment of musical inspiration with the portable new BR-800. The BR-800 is now shipping with an MSRP of $524.00.
