New, but so far...

I got this because I like to play guitar and I like to do things by myself. When I was younger I was in a few bands, but nothing serious. I never got serious. I do things for my own happiness. I already love this little gadget. It's new so my rating is just on a brief look. But so far I like it a lot. What I will say is I was blown away at the service side of my order. Marshall Oliver couldn't have been more conscientious about my purchase with Sweetwater. Called to make sure the delivery address was all correct and with follow up like that I am sure to purchase from Sweetwater again! My order even included a personal touch! A big thank you to all the people at Sweetwater for a great shopping experience! Thanks, - Bob in Milwaukee

Excellent device!

The BR 80 is excellent. It is packed with features. Effects, built in drum machine, 8 track multitracker, stereo recorder, mastering effects. You can create some very convincing demos on this thing. Is it perfect?...well, it is very close. It can even be handy as just an effect. I had a gig on bass ( I am normally a guitarist) took the BR 80 and my bass. Pluged into the PA and used the bass guitar efx in the br 80....worked great. This is the swiss army knife of portable multi trackers. It has more bang for the buck than any of the rest in this size/ price range. Sweetwater has tip top service, as always. Thanks.

Great Trainer and Idea Capture Device

I'm a guitarist with a modest home studio but, since my daughters birth I haven't been able to spend as much time in the "Man Cave" as I would like. Not that I'm complaining I just needed to retool to something portable so that I could practice while keeping an eye on my daughter. I first tried the 4 trk Micro BR and really enjoyed it but, it was lacking in odd meter metronome functions and the ability to import midi files. So I returned it and ordered the BR-80. It is well laid out for such a small interface. If you are expecting a lot of versatility in workflow this is not your machine. It really is designed as a practice aid and idea capture device. You could with some effort produce a fairly good song with this device but, it really shines when used in conjunction with a computer running a software suite like Sonar, Garage Band or Pro Tools. My current workflow involves using Sonar X1 or Guitar Pro 6 to create a backing track and then load it on to the BR-80. I can then either jam with it as an eBand song or record my guitar part in the multi-track mode. The rhythm functions really are only good as a glorified metronome. The SMF(midi) import function works well if you need to load in irregular beat progressions or entire midi drum tracks. The sound of the kits is pretty primitive but more than antiquate for tracking along with. So, for my situation this really fits the bill. I can export the audio from Sonar to the BR-80 and then record additional tracks. I then can upload the track to my computer and integrate it back into the Sonar project.
