Boss is now shipping the BR-1200CD digital recording studio, which is equipped with COSM effects and amp models derived from BOSS’ GT-6 Series multi-effects processors, plus a bass and drum programmer.
A lineup of COSM amp models are built in, including the Roland JC-120 Jazz Chorus, plus models of BOSS Compact Pedals such as the OD-1 and MT-2. Also onboard are COSM Mic Models, which emulate expensive condenser mics. The Vocal Tool Box handles pitch correction and added harmonies. The Mastering Tool Kit can add polish to a mix.
The BR-1200CD also includes an onboard bass and drum programmer with acoustic drum and percussion instruments, as well as electronic sounds. Slapped, picked, and fretless bass sounds are also included. Users can choose from supplied patterns or create tracks from scratch. The EZ Compose feature enables custom programming, and there’s also a selection of great loop phrases pre-installed on the internal hard drive.
The BR-1200CD has a USB port for one-cable data exchange with a computer. Audio tracks can be imported/exported in .WAV format, and songs can be backed up externally. The BR-1200CD is compatible with both PC and Mac, including Mac OS X.
