The Boss BR-80 Digital Recorder fills a very useful niche in the portable digital audio recorder market. Unlike most of the other recorders on the market that fall into its price range the BR-80 offers true 8 track recording and throws in dozens of background rhythms and special audio effects in as icing on the cake. Users can make use of the two built in microphones or they can plug in their guitar or other unbalanced audio source to record from.
Provides three different ways to record, either the basic live recording mode, MTR (multi track recording) mode, or eBand mode which allows the user to record along with an existing audio track stored on the device's SD card. The unit also has a center channel cancellation function which allows it to remove vocals from the songs being accompanied.
