The BOSS BR-800 allows anyone with even the smallest amount of work space to create and edit complex multi-track recording, thanks to a comprehensive number of inputs and outputs, faders and knobs and easily-accessed features all housed within an oh-so-slim chassis.

'EZ' Recording

Whether you're creating intricate, multi-layered songs or point-and-capture field recordings, the BR-800 makes the recording process fast and easy. Beginners will love the new EZ Recording mode which interactively guides you through the recording process. Other helpful features include the convenient RETRY function, which recues automatically to fix mistakes, and SONG SKETCH recording for instant, one-touch capture. There's also a built-in stereo condenser microphone plus a DR-880-quality rhythm generator for adding drum and percussion tracks to your songs.

Onboard COSM Effects

Enhance your recordings with the powerful BOSS effects onboard the BR-800. Many of the effects are derived from BOSS' flagship processors, including vocal effects from the VE-20, COSM guitar/bass effects from the GT-10 series, and modelled acoustic-guitar body effects from the AP-1 preamp, which imparts pro-quality miced-up sound and rich body tone to line-recorded acoustic guitar.


The BR-800's USB compatibility enables a variety of functionality with computers. Connected to a PC, the BR-800 will function as an USB audio interface for recordings that utilize the internal effects. The BR-800 can also function as a control surface for DAW software.

Record Anywhere!

You can power the BR-800 from the included AC adaptor, or, for ultimate mobility, it can be powered from six AA batteries - you can literally record anywhere!
