The Micro BR offers four simultaneous playback tracks (plus 32 V-Tracks), MP3 compatibility, onboard multi-effects, built-in rhythm patterns, a tuner, USB, an SD Card slot, and more. No guitar case or gig bag should be without one!

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 MoreAt 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 OnboardGiven the Micro BR s small size and low price, you might be surprised to find the next two features onboard: (1) Almost 300 drum patterns are included. Use them for play-along inspiration or even as song foundations. The rhythms don t consume any of the four playback tracks they play back independently. (2) A quality multi-effects processor is onboard, including a time-stretch algorithm for changing the tempo
Top Customer Reviews
This unit has a lot of features and the jargon given is a little bit much for an individual who is not experienced in recording terms.
It probably does have a whole lot of capability, but it's a little too much to comprehend for a beginner such as myself. Therefore, I haven't had the enthusiasm to work with it a whole lot. May have to resell it and purchase something a little more simplier. I am not a pro nor do I wish to be. I purchased it just to experiment with. Very disappointed in the unit in regards to simplicity.
I bought the Micro BR used for ~$150.
I do wish I could record two tracks separately. The built in mic is OK (some said it was great and that, I'm sure is true in a relative sense), and I've used it.
What would be REALLY great is if the Micro BR had some sort of attachement so I could mount it to a microphone stand. That would be awesome because I could then possition it to really use the built-in mic well and also have its in a great place to opperate it. As it is now you have to leave it setting on a deck to and the mic is fairly directional so unless you are playing on the ceiling above it... or you can prop it up but any jiggling or any bump will make a lot of noise.
I think I'd be more critical of a few other things if I had paid retail price for this but for what I want it for (to make copyright MP3 files) and the price I paid it is just dandy.
Edit: I got to fiddling with the MIC sensitivity and this improved its quality a lot. At +4 to +6 the sound is fairly rich.
The only downside I have found so far (besides navigating the menu's) is battery life. This little guy is power hungry! Either invest in the optional a/c adapter or, buy a couple of sets (4 batteries) of NIMh AA rechargeable batteries, at least 2000mah, and a charger. I prefer to use batteries and the NIMh's hold up fairly well.
Even though this recorder came out in late 2009, I would still recommend purchasing it, especially if you can get a "new" one for $150 or less, like I did on Amazon.com.
