BR in Your Pocket or Guitar Case

The Micro BR is so small you can put it in your pocket! It measures just 136.0 mm x 81.0 mm x 21.4 mm (5-3/8 x 3-3/16 x 7/8 ). But even though it s tiny, the Micro BR packs an entire studio s worth of features into its tiny case. There are a dozen buttons on its front panel, nine knobs, and even a built-in microphone for quick capture.

Four Tracks More

At its core, the Micro BR is a four-track studio with four simultaneous playback tracks and two simultaneous record / input tracks.However, there s more to this recorder than meets the eye. Each of the four main playback tracks also has eight companion V-Tracks (for a total of 32), so you can record take after take after take, then pick your best material for final mixdown.

Drum Machine Effects Onboard

I have been looking for a device that would allow me to multi-track record with the utmost convenience. I have used my computer with a USB sound card to record in the past. I have found it takes me up to ten minutes to set up to begin recording with the sound card. And then, I get bogged down by the numerous options in the recording software. By the time I'm done, I've missed an evening to spend with my wife, and the inspiration to record in the first place has been encumbered by the technology.

My needs are simple. I'm just recording classical guitar solo, duet, and ensemble, but I want a reasonably nice recording. I want set up to be fast. The Micro BR meets these needs.

The Micro BR has four input types for recording: guitar, built in mic, stereo line in, and stereo external condenser mic (with 2.5 V plug-in power). The sensitivity of each input can be adjusted to match a wide variety of equipment. Insertion effects can be added during recording, when bouncing tracks, or when mastering down to a stereo recording. There is a wide variety of preset insertion effects. You can also add reverb to the monitored sound, or to the recording of bounced tracks or mastered tracks. You can play back four tracks at once and record two tracks at once. Each track supports eight "virtual" tracks. These are really just alternative choices to use for a track. You can edit tracks by moving sections of sound, copying sections of sound, or erasing sections of sound. You can also set punch-in and punch-out points for fixing small mistakes. When recording in "normal" mode, you have three choices of formats which are Boss proprietary. In MP3 mode, you can record stereo 64, 128, and 192 kbps MP3 or WAV.

This is a clever little gadget. It is a portable audio recorder, an effects box, a dictation machine, an MP3 player, and a pocket mirror (no joke - the fascia is very reflective). You can even use it as a guitar tuner. I think Boss was trying to make a convergent device, and they have almost succeeded, but the Micro BR has a couple of quite major flaws that hold it back. If you think of it as a portable guitar effects box with a built-in solid state recorder it's excellent. If you need to record people speaking it's very useful, and small, and silent as it records. It is actually cheaper that some digital dictation machines, and will record voice forever with a 1gb SD card, although the batteries will run down after a couple of hours. It's not so good as a replacement for a four-track tape recorder, however, for reasons I will explain. I own one, I have it next to my keyboard as I write this review, I have owned it for a fortnight, and I have used it every day. The interface takes a while to pick up. The manual is not great. It comes in a nice box. You get a felt-feeling slipcase, two alkaline batteries, and a 128mb memory card that has a demo song on it. There's an erratum slip for the manual. The demo song is a bland rock song. The manual does not say if it was recorded from scratch with the Micro BR; I imagine that it was not.

I will now discuss its limitations. The first and most important limitation is that you can only record from one input at a time. The machine has four inputs. There is a 1/4 inch guitar jack socket, there is a built-in microphone, and there is a 2.5mm socket that doubles as a line input and a powered mic input. If you want to record yourself playing guitar through the 1/4 jack onto track one, and singing into a microphone plugged into the 2.

Great little unit, its not perfect but I must say very cleverly thought out. The design is flawless, slick and small. Does not take to long to learn, there is a quick start section for that. Whatever signal you feed it will play back as the good'ol DAT would. Microphone is better than expected, picks up everything very responsive. In two hours or so you can record and test everything, drumpatterns, nice guitar and vocal effects, metronome, tuner etc this thing is packed with functions. As you go along you will watch the batterie power go down quickly so I recommend a charger or power adapter. I am not sure if one can do a whole production on this (I guess if you had to you could) but to practice and for songwriting scratchideas its great. I am doing guitar and piano recording sessions and I'll transfer over the parts I want to the Mac. The drums to me are so so, a lot of focus to our rock and metal friends which is not for me. A few different snares would be nice but hey, there is a drum maschine packed in it so I can't complain. What I miss most of all though is a little oldfashioned loudspeaker built in, programable drums and bass, even smaller in size? and 8+ digital tracks??? I am sure thats all coming in the future, in the mean time 5 stars for inovation, design and good overall quality, it outshines my wishlist and things that could be improved. -------------- A little something that I found out for the last week using this unit - get a 512MB -1GB SD card so you don't run out of memory in the middle of composing......(A 128MB card comes with the unit). I recommend SanDisk 512MB it works very well for me and I actually think - the read and save process takes longer on my SanDisk Ultra 1GB. With a 1GB card you can store much more (8+hrs) but I think its slows the machine down a little when saving and reading information. Btw this unit may not accept SD cards over 1GB so be careful shopping around.
