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.
