I recently bought a Boss BR-1600 recording box and I'm beginning to think this thing is the spawn of Satan.

How the hell do I turn off the reverb?? I don't play with much reverb and it's so high it's making every note I play reverb like twelve times, and it's totally screwing up my songs!!

Thanks

Are you recording with reverb from your amp or is the Boss adding it to the mix? I'd suggest turning it all off at your amp/effects, then adding it on later in the mixing process.

If you're already doing that, in the BR1600s effects settings there will be a few different settings. You'll either want to turn down the amount of effect you're getting or the level it plays the effect at. Adding & removing effects will be covered in the manual.

Are you using the BR to record with the mic or by plugging straight in and using the amp/cab sims?

I'm pretty sure you can just hit the "effects" button and turn on/off the effects. Another thing you can do is put the input into "rec dry" mode so that it records just the dry signal, but you actually hear the signal with the effects added to it.

You can also just go in and turn the individual effects on and off (reverb, delay, chorus, etc.). I'm not sure on the exact procedure for this on the BR1600, but on the 600 you just hit the effects button and scroll to the patch you want. Then highlight "edit" and press enter. This lets you change individual settings within the patch.


I have the BR600 so I'm not sure if it's exactly the same but I will be fooling around with some recordings later today so I will post if I find any more relevant info.

To be honest I somewhat wish I would have just gone with a mic + interface and DAW, but the capabilities the BR units have a pretty impressive. However, it's been a huge pain for me to figure out how to use.
