Alex Hutchings: Boss BR 800 musikmesse

I managed to bump into Alex Hutchings (notice how he has initials AH?... ) and Robert Marcello on the BOSS stand. Both these guys were top notch demoing doing a great job for BOSS going through their latest products. Both Alex and Robert are super busy guys, but managed to find some time to chat to them between sets.

The good news for guitar fans is both players are looking ar recording material. In Alex Hutchings case, he is trying to set aside some time to complete his solo CD, along with his other various projects. So the CD won't be right away but definitely in the pipeline.

Battery-Powered Studio To Go

BR-800Los Angeles, CA, March 24, 2010  BOSScontinues its top-selling tradition of portable, affordable multi-trackers with the new BR-800 — a battery-powered studio to go. The sleek new design is made possible by touch-sensor switches and SD-card recording media. Up to four tracks can be recorded or eight tracks played back simultaneously, plus an additional stereo track dedicated to the built-in rhythm generator.

Whether you’re creating intricate, multi-layered songs or point-and-capture field recordings, the BR-800 makes the recording process fast and easy. Beginners will love the new EZ Recording mode that interactively guides you through the recording process. Other helpful features include the convenient RETRY function, which re-cues automatically to fix mistakes, and SONG SKETCH recording for instant, one-touch capture. There’s also a built-in stereo condenser microphone, plus a DR-880-quality rhythm generator for adding drum and percussion tracks to your songs.

Enhance your recordings with the powerful BOSS effects onboard the BR-800. Many of the effects are derived from BOSS’ flagship processors, including vocal effects from the VE-20, COSM® guitar/bass effects from the GT-10 series, and modeled acoustic-guitar body effects from the AP-1 preamp, which imparts pro-quality miked-up sound and rich body tone to line-recorded acoustic guitar. You’ll be amazed at how much processing power is built into this little recorder, and how excellent the effects sound.

You can power the BR-800 from the included AC adaptor, or for ultimate mobility, it can be powered from six AA batteries. Record anywhere! The BR-800’s USB compatibility enables a variety of functionality with computers. Connected to a PC, the BR-800 will function as an USB audio interface for recordings that utilize the internal effects. The BR-800 can also function as a control surface for DAW software.

No matter where you roam, you’ll never miss a moment of musical inspiration with the portable new BR-800. The BR-800 is expected to be available in May with an MSRP of $525.00. For more information, please visit

Hey all,

I have decided to give the tracks here on myspace away for free, they are remixed and feature bass parts. I have called this E.P "Melodic Concepts" as these are "melodic concepts".

You can find the link here! (copy paste it!)

I would love to know what you think, give the music around and share it!

Bill Ruppert: Envelope Filter Oddities

Bill Ruppert:
Electro-Harmonix Effectology, Vol.14 Envelope Filter Oddities

In this episode I wanted to try something different and experiment with pedals I have never used.
I pick the envelope filters and found some new and unusual sounds by using the pedals in new ways!
Theses are far from the Wha-Wha sounds most often heard from envelope filters.

Never judge what an effect pedal will do by what you have heard it will do.
Experiment and you will find new sounds not yet discovered!
