I’ve been playing with my Mico BR some more and I’ve really got to say just how impressive it is. Remember that idea I had whilst mucking around with it? I added a chorus, programmed some drums (not the pattern an arrangement of preset patterns), added a bass line, mixed it and mastered it all on this little silver box-o-tricks.
What really blew me away was the mastering section, who’d have thought that this little box’s mastering section would be quite so comprehensive? It comes with a three band compressor (adjustable frequency points), each band has it’s own threshold, ratio, attack and relase plus a mixer (one input for each band) and limiter. Don’t forget, you can of course pan and adjust the mix of each track and add effects (to the overall mix) before you master it, simply awesome.
One thing that had been driving me nutty was that when you used a drum beat, saved a song and then reloaded it (ie. after a power off or doing something else), the tempo of the drums wasn’t saved! Silly me, if you create a drum arrangement to go with the song, the tempo is saved with the arrangement and the arrangement is saved with song.
Anyway, here’s an excerpt of the track I wrote and recorded on the Micro BR, using my guitar and bass, everything else (drums, reverb, effects, distortion, etc) is done within the Micro BR, it’s called T12V7_01 (which is just a working title).
