BOSS BR-900CDLos Angeles, CA, January 20, 2005—BOSS’s new BR-900CD is the portable power studio with CD-burning built in. It’s road tough, friendly to use, and it performs far beyond its weight class. This reliable all-in-one digital recorder stands out with its top-quality effects, realistic drum-pattern generator, vocal-correction and Mastering Toolkit, digital outputs, and internal CD burner. No matter where you are — in your home studio or on the road — all you’ll need is your instrument of choice, a BR-900CD, and a set of headphones, and you can write, record, edit, mix, master, and burn a complete, polished CD anywhere, anytime.
With the same reliable and friendly operation as BOSS’s popular BR-864, the BR-900CD takes three big steps forward by increasing the front-panel fader count from four to eight, and adding a built-in CD-RW drive and pitch-correction toolkit to the feature set. Even with all of these great new features, the unit’s footprint remains small for ease of travel.
The BR-900CD offers a quality lineup of effects, including time-tested standards (reverb, EQ, chorus, delay, wah) and new-school power tools, such as vocal pitch-correction, bass simulation, COSM®-powered guitar amp and compressor models, and a mastering suite.
Songwriters will love the BR-900CD’s built-in rhythm programmer, packed with 292 expressive patterns that can be used as-is or customized. Use these realistic backing tracks as inspiration for writing and recording.
Connect the BR-900CD to other devices with one convenient USB connection. Import and export audio files and song data quickly and easily. Need to add some drum loops or vocal samples to your song? Simply drag and drop WAV files from a USB-equipped computer into the BR-900CD. Conversely, audio files you’ve created in the BR can be exported to computers.
Write, record, mix, master, and burn — this little powerhouse does it all, and with BOSS reliability and quality.
