Boss micro BR ...wow!!!!

Incredible... this new 4 track recorder from Boss is fantastic and it costs less than 200 pounds.

Here are a couple of tracks recorded by a friend as soon as he got his in his living room. Eveything is just the Boss...

Pretty good stuff - Looking at the picture - does it have a phrase trainer as well?

Sounds great, the drums I take it were also from the Boss unit? Is the in-built mic any good for loud guitars or would mic'ing up an amp require the use of a proper instrument mic?

Did he just plug his guitar straight in?

Thanks for posting 5F6-A !

I was impressed by the samples and the description of features on the Boss website. The only drawback is that The cost (however good) competes with my wish to buy more BKPs :roll:

I definately would buy that Boss unit if I had the 'spare' cash though...
