I am looking for a field recorder that I can also use as a sketchpad for new material. I am familiar with the Sony Minidisk, the Edirol, & M-Audio. Both Boss units look great on paper. Does anyone have hands on experience and can compare to the other recorders. Suggestions, please.

I am considering getting a Micro BR as a sketchpad practice tool too. There is a good discussion on the Steel Guitar Forum by some users.

I bought the Micro BR 6 months ago after a couple of years with a Korg 1200.
I am very pleased and have not been back to the 1200 because of the BR's simplicity.
This means you can get the ideas down quickly on the road or in the bedroom but can also develop a decent demo with practice.
You have to get good at bouncing with only 4 trax (+8 virtual trax ea.)but it's good practice and a good sound with lots of FX and preset mastering algos.
Good bang for the few bucks.

The BR Micro exceeds my expectations. It is one of the most important musical tools I have. It is right up there with the metronome. My primary uses are for maintaining an audio diary of my playing and slowing down MP3s to help me learn tunes. If it were to break or be lost, I would replace the Micro as soon as possible. I am going to purchase a Micro BR with the following description.

Have a Micro BR that is excellent for practice and basic tracks and drum kits to record and playback so I can hear my progress. I also like that you can slow down the mp3s.


It may be for 20 or 30 years no one has yet been able to decide the length of the life of the black bass.
