I don't know if that's a good recorder, I just use my laptop for that.

Recording yourself will certainly make you a better player since it will more readily allow you to hear your mistakes. It also lets you see your progress much better. Record something today and listen to it 6 months later and you'll think it sounded sloppy and that you used the same riff over and over, etc, etc.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

If you record a chord progression and practice improvising over it, it can help basically all parts of guitar playing. And the mistakes thing too I guess.

I'm not sure about the BR-600. But I heard very good things about the Micro BR and the 600 is supposed to be more advanced.
As for recording yourself, you can listen to your weaknesses and then you can focus on them to help you improve in that area.

Micing is always better as far as tone goes, IMO. The speaker is an important part of the amp, when you skip it you lose something as far as your sound goes.

I think the quality is better when you go through the recording device and don't mic your amp. Just experiment a bit until you find something that you like.

I use a loop pedal (Boss Rc20xl) and can record up to sixteen minutes, so you can def analyze your playing and it lets you record over urself as much as you want...its a great way to work on rhythm, lead, and timing simultaneously...just a thought

some modelling amps like the Roland Cube were designed specifically to sound better when you use "direct out". either way, bear in mind that however you record, it won't sound exactly the same as what you're hearing from the speakers until you do some tweaking.

I understand, my only experience with line out was a on a Mesa F-30 which didn't sound very good through the line out.

I know that you have to tweak the amp when you record, I'm just saying I like the sound of a speaker recorded better than a line out.

ive got a br-400. something in the 400's.

anyway, that should tell you how old it is.

it's great.


you can record songs off anything with AV plugs or headphone out.
you can add a drum beat.
you can sync tracks, transfer songs from one computer to another.

you can mic or direct line.


it's so easy to use too. i'm an idiot and i can do it.

personally, listening to myself helped me a lot. you realize that what you here when your playing can be very different from what is heard by others. for me, i realized that i play a lot faster than i think i am.

Yes it can. But dont get a BR-600. I have one, and the recording quality sucks, and all the effects are useless. The drums are also really hard to program.
#18
It's best to record with computers. It's much easier. You can drag and drop and add metronomes with just a click. Nothing to it and theres free software that will do for just recording yourself.
#19
/\ you should read the manual it very easy and the effects are not bad . i bet you have your rec volume peeking

Well it came yesterday and it's probably taken me about 6 hours to get used to it (after spending about 3 hours just playing with the different sounds and effects), but then I don't like reading instructions and you can't really get away with that, as hans the lefty said.
It's well worth the money and has plenty of effects etc.
Get one.

I used a BR-1600 to record a demo for my old band and my buddy's bands demo. It worked pretty good for recording direct, miced and for vocals.

I've been considering either the Boss Micro BR or the Line6 BackTrack for basic stuff myself; just to get ideas done wherever I am.

It will definitely help your playing. Sometimes you can pick out mistakes/flaws in your playing that you don't notice at the time. Also being able to jam over the top with scales/arpeggios will help train your ear.
