Boss of Bosses
Rory B. 463, 30.07.2013
What a great gadget....I was looking for something to get song ideas down and had tried other recorders but they didn't allow for multiple layering....this baby lets you stick down drum beats, bass parts, rhythm guitars and lead work and vocals and lets you master your work so it can be downloaded and burnt to Cd. Everybody knows what it's like trying to get new songs done via practices...well this lets you get a proper working demo which is absolutely brilliant.
You can do live recording of work also with decent sound quality letting you hear how your band or yourself are playing. It's easy to use, with well laid out menus with enter and exit prompts so you don't inadvertently dump anything you wanted to keep, a multitude of boss effects and if you use a large memory card you can put whole catalogues of work through it.
It also has a great training / play along facility where you can edit out the parts you want to learn / practice and it includes software to allow detailed mastering of your work.
I would easily recommend this to any level of musician it's small, compact so easy to use and very, very impressive. Get one and enjoy making your music it's that easy.

Great for home guitar practice, not so great for MT recording
Myst, 18.09.2020
I ordered the Boss BR-80 mainly for practicing at home without the hassle of setting up an amp and effects and so on. Quite simple, guitar in, headphones out, wide variety of backing tracks and recommended guitar tones, plus you can also use your computer to transfer your favourite play along songs. The e-Band function is great. However, it took a lot of time to figure out how the multi track recorder works, and then setting up the percussions and all is a big hassle. Moreover, the live recording function with the condensator mics sounds good, may even work in a small home studio, but didn't quite work as expected to record a live jam sessions. Additionally I ordered the boss adapter so I don't run through my AAs.
All in all a good product for guitar practice.

Useful and complete
AndreaJem, 01.05.2020
A lot of sounds inside, fast to set. The only remark: I would expect a lithium battery for this price rechargable via USB as a mobile

Great device for capturing ideas
Andrex, 07.03.2017
This is a great device for capturing ideas and practising parts before recording. I use this mainly as a tool for capturing ideas when I'm noodling on the guitar, it takes less than a minute to get up and running so the creative flow does not get interrupted. If you spend the time to create custom drum patterns it is helpful, as some of the default patterns can be a bit annoying.
I also use it for practising guitar parts before I record them, being able to reduce the speed while keeping the pitch unchanged is a great feature and allows me to build up my speed on complicated parts before I record them.
The thumb wheel that you use to select many of you options can get a bit mental and not respond as it should. I resolved this by spraying electrical contact cleaner into the thumb wheel, while it was turned off of course and left if to dry over night, the wheel is performing as it should.
