Hey all,

I've got the Boss br80 and was wondering if anyone knows some good distortion settings for it? I've been trying to get something that sounds good with 7 string riffs, a kind of Nevermore sound I suppose but to no avail.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Cheers!

Can you get the sound you want by playing through your amp? Record that - most amps have a line out which can be plugged straight into one of the inputs on your BR80.

Cheers for the reply man. I can record by using line in from the amp to the br80 but it sounds a bit muffled. I've been using the mics on the br80 cause they're pretty good but really sensitive so even if I'm sitting on the other side of the room with the mic sensitivity as low as it will go it still picks up the string noise from my guitar haha! And that's with the recorder directly facing my amp! Also, when recording via line in it activates the mics so I still get string noise.

Just out of interest, have you got one?

No, but I have briefly played with one in my local guitar shop and was quite impressed with it for it's size. I use a Tascam 2488 MkII.

I'm surprised the mics are activated when you're using a line input though - if you can't find something about that in the manual, try googling for something like "Boss BR80 mic de-activation", if you're experiencing it, the chances are someone else is too and there's likely to be a thread about it on a more specialised site.

Thanks for the advice, I'll have a look around. I've listened to some stuff on youtube where people have got some good sounds with it so I'm sure I'll get there haha!
