Massive 80-Track Recording
The BR-1180 provides ten primary tracks for recording and playback. This includes a new stereo Master Track which can be used for easier mixdowns and bouncing. Since each of these primary tracks contains eight Virtual Tracks, there are a total of 80 recording tracks available. And with a 20GB internal hard drive, you’ll have plenty of recording time, whether you choose one of the BR-1180’s space-saving recording modes or the new linear recording option.
Feel the Burn with a CD-RW Drive
If you want to burn CDs, simply choose the BR-1180CD with a CD-RW drive built-in. But even if you buy the standard BR-1180 model, you can easily upgrade it to a BR-1180CD later by purchasing an optional CD-RW kit. This internal drive can be user-installed in minutes. Now you can burn audio CDs and back up the internal hard drive at blazing speeds.
Onboard COSM Effects and Mastering Tools
With the BR-1180, there’s no need for noisy external effects. Whether recording a microphone, guitar or keyboard, you’ll find exactly what you need. The BR-1180 is so smart, it even selects the effect type (Insert or Loop) based on the input you’re recording. You get everything from reverb and delay to killer COSM Guitar Amp Modeling, plus a Mastering Tool Kit for sweetening up the final mix.
Built-In Rhythm Track and More
If you’re looking for drums, tap into the BR-1180’s new Rhythm Track: It’s got sampled drum sounds and plenty of Preset patterns for creating drum tracks without using recording tracks. You can even import new patterns via Standard MIDI Files or load loops in .WAV format for playback. Other handy features include a Phrase Trainer for slowing down guitar licks, a built-in chromatic tuner and two XLR Microphone inputs with phantom power.
