The Boss BR-800 is a digital multitrack recorder with onboard digital effects, a built-in stereo microphone array, AA battery operation and SD card compatibility.
The multitrack mixing capacity is four-channel making it a nice choice for more complicated remotes or recording bands in the field. The BR-800 can also operate as a USB audio interface when attached to a computer or a control surface for a DAW. It offers tape recorder-style controls.
Also included are a VFD screen, jog/shuttle dial, 48 V phantom power, Hi-Z input and headphone input. The onboard effects are collected from Roland’s well-known COSM effects packages. The BR-800 ships with a 1 GB SD card and Cakewalk SONAR LE.
