Boss BR-600 Details:

8 Tracks & Beyond

The BR-600 provides eight simultaneous playback tracks, but there's more to this recorder than meets the eye. Each of the eight tracks also contains eight V-Tracks (virtual tracks), which gives you quick access to 64 tracks of recorded material. Record dozens of takes, then choose your favorites for mixdown.


Sweeten your tracks with the powerful effects built into the BR-600. Derived from BOSS high-end recorders, these quality algorithms can give even the dullest tracks maximum impact. Fix mistakes and master your mixes. Included in the effects suite: COSMŽ guitar and bass amp models plus chorus, delay, reverb, and EQ for every channel. Pitch correction is provided as well.

Drum Machine Onboard

Need drums? The BR-600 has a drum machine built in. Assemble your perfect backing track from nearly 300 high-quality drum patterns built in, or program your own from the velocity-sensitive pads. Rock, pop, blues, country, R&B, Latin, and more - choose your style and you're instantly groovin'.

Field Recording

Wherever you go, the ultra-portable BR-600 is ready to record. It can operate on six AA batteries, for starters, so you don't have to sweat the AC connection. Best of all, a quality stereo microphone is built in, so you can point and capture audio on the spot, quickly and easily. Whether you're recording band rehearsals, capturing ambient sounds, or you name it, the BR-600 is all you need to get the job done with zero hassle.


The BR-600 records its CD-quality digital audio direct to Compact Flash, the international standard for reliable, portable storage. A removable 128MB CF card is included, which provides approximately 65 minutes of recording time (one mono track). You can easily expand your recording time by purchasing optional CF cards.
