BOSS Ships BR-864 8-Track Digital Studio

Unit records to Compact Flash card for more than an hour of recording time By DMN Staff Writer
BOSS is now shipping the BR-864 8-Track Digital Studio, a portable 8-track recorder featuring eight primary recording tracks, 64 Virtual Tracks, COSM effects and USB. The BR-864 records to an included 128MB Compact Flash card for more than an hour of recording time.

With 64 Virtual Tracks, there's room to track multiple overdubs, vocals and instruments. A built-in USB port makes it easy to load and convert .WAV/AIFF files from a Mac or PC directly into a track, or export songs for CD-burning and MP3 creation. It's also useful for archiving and backing up song data.

Onboard effects include separate Loop and Insert processors with everything from COSM Amp Modeling and a Bass Simulator to wah effects, a guitar synth and Harmonist for scale-intelligent pitch shifting. An improved version of BOSS' Rhythm Guide offers full programmability and a new Tone Load function for creating custom drum sounds by importing .WAV and AIFF files. As before, the Rhythm Guide doesn't use any of the 64 recording tracks, enabling users to mix down up to eight tracks and drums.

Connections to the BR-864 include a 1/4-inch Instrument/Hi-Z Instrument input, XLR and 1/4-inch Microphone inputs, a stereo RCA Line input, stereo RCA Line output, a headphone output, S/PDIF digital output and USB port. The BR-864 runs on batteries or optional AC power.

BOSS products are manufactured and distributed by Roland Corporation.
