Roland launches the Boss Micro BR palmtop recording studio

First seen at the British Music Fair a few days earlier, Boss introduced the Micro BR Digital Recorder at the summer Namm show 2006. Only slightly larger than an iPod, the tiny-yet-powerful Micro BR is both a palmtop guitar companion and a recording studio.
The Micro BR offers the ability to load and play back MP3 files, time-stretch MP3s in real time without affecting pitch, has an onboard guitar multi-effects processor, built-in rhythm patterns, and offers 32 recording tracks (V-tracks) with four simultaneous playback tracks.
Although measuring approximately 5"x3"x1" and small enough to put in your pocket, the Micro BR packs an entire studio worth of features into its tiny case. At its core, the Micro BR is a 4-track studio with four simultaneous playback tracks and two simultaneous record/input tracks. Each of the four main playback tracks also has eight companion V-Tracks (for a total of 32) which allows to record take after take then choose the best material for mixdown.
The Micro BR also features almost 300 drum patterns for play-along inspiration or even as song foundations and a quality guitar multi-effects processor including time-stretch functionality for changing the tempo of your tracks without changing the pitch.
USB compatibility allows loading or uploading of MP3 files for play-along, rehearsing, jamming, or data exchange with a computer. The recording media of choice is the internationally recognized Secure Digital (SD) Card which can be easily found in electronics stores across the world.
