Large images ..Available from 07/18/2006 until 11/30/1999
Meet the ultimate palmtop recording studio. Only slightly larger than an iPod, the tiny-yet-powerful Micro BR is dream for musicians on the go. The Micro BR offers four simultaneous playback tracks (plus 32 V-Tracks), an SD Card slot, onboard multi-effects, built-in rhythm patterns, a tuner, MP3 compatibility, USB, and more. No guitar case or gig bag should be without one.
BR in Pocket - The Micro BR is so small you can put it in your pocket! It measures just 136.0 mm x 81.0 mm x 21.4 mm (5-3/8" x 3-3/16" x 7/8"). But even though it’s a shrimp, the Micro BR packs an entire studio worth of features into its tiny case. There are a dozen buttons on its front panel, and even a built-in microphone for quick capture.
Four Tracks & More - At its core, the Micro BR is a four-track studio with four simultaneous playback tracks and two simultaneous record / input tracks. However, there’s more to this recorder than meets the eye. Each of the four main playback tracks also has eight companion V-Tracks (for a total of 32), so you can record take after take after take, then pick your best material for final mixdown.
Drum Machine & Effects Onboard - Given the Micro BR’s small size and low price, you might be surprised to find the next two features onboard: (1) Almost 300 drum patterns are included. Use them for play-along inspiration or even as song foundations. The rhythms don’t consume any of the four playback tracks — they play back independently. (2) A quality multi-effects processor is onboard, including a time-stretch algorithm for changingthe tempo of your audio tracks without changing pitch — a great tool for both audio editing and phrase training. The Time Stretch feature can also be used with MP3 data; the Micro BR's Center Cancel feature can be applied to MP3 data as well.
SD Recording - There are no moving parts inside the Micro BR. It’s a road-tough, memory-card-based digital recorder. The recording media of choice is the internationally recognized SD (Secure Digital) Card, which can be easily found in electronics shops that sell digital cameras. One tiny SD Card can store your sessions. The included 128MB card, for example, can record approximately 65 minutes of audio with one mono track selected.
