This is one amazing little device. I found as soon as I got it that it had all of the features that I needed to be my own band, and whats more, all those features were easy to use. The almost limitless number of effects were all genuine, whether they be for a guitar, turning my electric into a bass, or turning my electric into an acoustic. I was also pleased with the built in mikes and the overall quality of this recorder. The loop effects were terrific, as well as the drum machine, which had many different kits I could use to create thousands of possibilities. In review, the possibilities are endless when recording with this product.

This unit has great features, but good luck in finding a CompactFlash card that will work in it. Now that the CF card that came with the machine is full, I cannot find one that will work in the machine, even after following the specs provided by BOSS. Stay away from this thing and find a unit that has an internal HD or other form of compact storage. The thing is completely useless to me now.

STAY AWAY - Cannot Find CompactFlash Cards

This unit has great features, but good luck in finding a CompactFlash card that will work in it.

My recorder

By Jett deRiso

from Haslet

I got this item last Christmas and I've recorded about 20 songs on it. I love everything about it except that I can't record on all 8 tracks. It only seems that I can record on 6. I think it is because 5 and 6 are together and 7 and 8 are together. That is only a total of six. Other than that, I am so glad that I received this recorder. It's what I spend my whole weekend on.

Little Investment for Big Quality

By DANIEL URDANIVIA

from San Diego, CA

The reviews posted here helped me decide to get one. I had a great experience with this machine for over 2 years now and even when I'm about to upgrade to a higher BR, I'll keep my BR-600 because of its small size and portability. Just a couple of tips: Get the right Memory Cards (speed & capacity), never overload it (save enough room for mixing and mastering), use digital alkaline bateries when needed, make sure you have a computer with CD burning capabilities and most important, backup your tracks regularly. Enjoy it and have fun.

Perfect Sketchbook

By Xcile

from Wrentham, MA

I was looking for something to throw ideas down at a moments notice without having to boot up my desktop and mess around with a DAW, so something portable and quick to get up and running. I looked at the Tascam's and the Fostex machines -- and this one. What sold me was the BOSS name (been a fan since the eighties) and the inclusion of a drum machine -- and not just any drum machine, but a Boss! Very pleased with the purchase. Having used BOSS drum machines before I kinda know the drill for maneuvering through their arcane menus -- with this device you MUST be prepared to learn a new way of doing things. It's not hard. It's just different. The sound is great, the effects are are real bonus. Other bonusus - download a little app to make writing your own drum tracks a lot easier than using the step programming and learn how to download your own drum samples to the on-board drum machine (which is fantastic). Two gripes 1. MIDI would have been nice to output drumtracks and keyboard tracks. 2. The BR600 only accepts memory cards up to 1 GB -- and only older, slower ones at that. You will have to shop around to get a compatible memory card. Don't get one from Amazon they are horribly overpriced (I guess they know there's a market for them).

Songwriter's Sketchbook

By Andy Mawson

from Wrentham, MA

What an amazing little box. I call it my sketchbook. When I'm writing down the bones of a song, I don't want to be booted up into my Windows based studio. The BR-600 lets we throw down a guitar bass and keyboard track - and the biggest selling point as far as I'm concerned when compared against the Tascams and Fosetex recorders, the inclusion of an excellent sounding drum machine with a large library of presets or you can write your own drum tracks. You have to spend a few hours with the manual though as the programming is not as easy as point and click - but a little patience and practice will be a great investment. Looks really nice and has a fabulous aesthetic and is very useable. The COSM capabilities are great - just dial through the various guitar options to get inspired. My request for MK 2? Let me save my drum patterns to the box for future use. Currently, any drum tracks you create are saved as part of the song. Also let me export midi.

Awesome unit!

By Daran

from Seattle, WA

Ive had the br600 for awhile and would recommend it to anyone, you can get a great sound from it, especially guitar effects. It is unbelievably easy to use. I have recently upgraded to a computer with home recording equipment, but plan to keep this just for all the guitar effects! You can record a song and in minutes have it mastered and uploaded online!

AWESOME BAND RECORDING

By Jon Barker

from New Hampshire

My three man band and I were looking for a high quality cost effective way to record our music. Luckily our drummers father (maybe some of you know the legend "Curly")had picked up this nifty gadget a few weeks before. I myself was scared of the quality from what they had told me about it. I WAS AMAZED. We set this puppy up in the corner of our 9x9 band room and hit record. the sound quality was amazing. First off, very easy to get going once you figure it all out. We recorded all instruments at once and the quality that was produced was amazing. i recommend this to anyone.

annoying

By jeff

from oklahoma

unit is extremely difficult to program especially the drums. if you play metal or death metal the effects clip early as far as recording high gain guitar stuff. i went back to my br-8 because it sounded way better and is way more easier to program. if you are looking for plug and play convienence then dont buy this. it takes a while to learn and when u have an idea and want to record it, you end up forgetting the idea by the time you get it set up and find the drumbeat you like.

Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By telemaster05

from Orefield PA

The Boss BR-600 could be the most worthwhile piece of guitar equipment I've ever bought. I love it half to death. The step by step manual makes it easy to understand, as long as you have some free time and alot of patience. THe recording quality is excelent, and the separate channel volume controles make it easy to mix song and recieve the perfect balance in sound. Another feature I love about the Boss BR-600 is its on-board effects selecton. There are 99 effects that can be achieved, including several Acoustic and Bass. The tube amp setting is especially unique, considering it is the first digital device I have ever used that provides that perfect muddy tube sound. When played through my Line 6 amp, I can achieve anything from a twangy funk to that classic feedbacked Hendrix sound.
