Build Your Own Backing Tracks
..........................................................................
..........................................................................
The BR-1600CD includes eight sweet-sounding XLR microphone
inputs with phantom power. Use them to mic up a drum set or to
record your entire band in a single pass. Recording eight tracks
at once is easy, thanks to a new “Multi-Track” recording mode—
just pick your inputs and start recording while taking advantage
of powerful channel effects like a compressor, 3-band EQ and
bass cut filter.
The BR-1600CD now includes separate Drum, Bass and Loop
Phrase tracks for creating complete backing arrangements. The
Drum and Bass tracks come with high-quality PCM sounds. The
Loop Phrase track can be loaded with user samples, or you can
choose from a collection of loop phrases pre-loaded onto the
hard disk. Using these tracks, you can build professional-quality
arrangements for your guitar and vocals.

Vocal Tool Box. This special algorithm includes auto pitch correction
to keep you in tune, plus a Harmony Sequence function for creating
realistic harmonies—no background singers needed!
