I have a Boss BR-600, and it's great for what i need. The only problem is I find the editing/mastering on the machine quite hard and confusing to use. I want to edit the tracks on my computer, but when i connect it up, the tracks don't appear unless i have mastered them into one, and then i can't really edit it properly.

So my question is, is there any program i can use on my PC to edit the tracks, without mastering them first?

Sorry if that makes no sense, just say and i'll try and re-phrase it.

with most lower end MTRs you have to mix down to send everything to the PC, this means you cant edit it anymore.

I don't know of any way around this other than recording each part as its own song and then transferring each part to the PC separately. You could always go with a new MTR though....I think the hard drive based units will do what you are looking for.
Oh, OK thanks.

I'll try doing it all on separate tracks then.
