5.0 out of 5 stars Quick and dirty - fantastic bit of kit 12 Sep 2007
I had to give this unit 5 stars, but first one negative point I need to cover - when recording vocals (I use an SM58) I cannot really hear myself through headphones - the master fader doubles as the master headphone volume, so cutting the volume of the recorded tracks down to let the vocal stand out means that you cant get much volume overall - clearly when it comes to vocals the best way to work is via an external amplifier of some sort which headphones in that, but I wouldn't say this was major enough to justify losing a star. (EDIT 2012: my issue there was I was plugging my mic into the wrong mic socket - there are two, one with phantom power and one without - using the correct socket fixed the vocal volume issue. Also worth mentioning I've been using this for 5 years now and still touch wood had not a single problem with it.)
What I love about the BR900 is how quick and dirty it is. You just switch on and record. No long boot, no complicated menus and fantastic BOSS quality effects built in. The amp emulators are very good, and the effects are quite dry - I use a gibson nighthawk and it really shines now. Previously I was using a Tascam 788 which is a good (but complicated) box, however the built in effects drowned everything and you could probably get the same guitar sound using a Peavey Predator.
The bass simulators, which vastly simplify the layout of my corner of the living room known either as 'that mess' or 'my studio' depending on who you talk to, allow you to use your six string guitar as a bass. Maybe would not be the case on any guitar out there, but on mine, I find it only really works with the 6th and 5th strings, 4th string and on sounds a bit strained. However the finished result is surprisingly convincing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and easy to use 9 Oct 2008
Before using this, i recorded on a budget. I used a video camera (which i also made films with) and windows movie maker to edit it, and the results took days and still sounded pretty rubbish. And then this i got this for my birthday. I was recording stuff really quickly and although the numerous options of CD creating was confusing for a while, i quickly got round it. It sounds very proffesional, is easy to use, and i still haven't discovered its limits. It has multiple tracks so you can do lots of overdubbing and other great stuff with it. Another thing that astonished me is how many effects it has. The guitars have 99 effects, including some that make it sound like a bass, and the vocals have quite a few as well. Something that would have taken hours or even days on my 'budget' method takes about 10 minutes on this and probably the best thing about it is: IT WORKS INSTANTLY. THERE IS NO COMPLICATED INSTALLATION THING.
