Well I guess it's a good thing I bought some headphones a while back. :D Work called today and told me I didn't have to come in, so now that I've finished all my stuff for the day, I've got nothing to do. Might as well go sit down and mess with the BR-600. Thanks for all the help guys.

And Maxx, wanna buy a Sheraton II? Lefty of course.


Lefty, I know a lefty who might be interested, only one problem... we live in Belgium... could you check what shipping to Belgium would cost?

As soon as you start overdubbing and multitracking, or using microphones, you are going to have to listen to what you are doing on headphones- ao you may as well get used to it now.
In a real studio, if you ever make it there, you will probably use headphones to hear yourself and what you are playing along with, but after that, when the track is being mixed, you will listen to the playback on Monitor speakers.
So for recording you go Guitar--possibly via effects box--BR600--headphones.
And for mixing go BR600--- a good stereo amp and speakers .
The people who really know about all this stuff charge a lot of money. That is because buying all the gear costs a lot and it takes a lot of time and effort to learn how to use it.
A fair proportion of them were taught by me.
Cheers
Dave

How do you use your BR? I had the idea that I could use it like this.

Guitar ----> BR-600 ----> Amp

That way I could hear what I'm playing. I really have no clue, and like I said, the manual has nothing.



just plug in headphones, that's how I always use it (don't want to wake up sleeping kid)

there is a LINE output, you can connect that to a stereo LINE input, and hear it on your system - to connect to your gtr amp, depends on the amp - if it has fx loop, you could get a cable to connect either the line output or the headphone output to the power amp in (fx return), that should work

check out this: http://backstage.rolandus.com/login.php maybe the manual you can get from there is more detailed than the one in the box - lately manufacturers tend to include a "quick start" or NO manual at all, letting you download the "full version" saving paper & shipping cost (weight)... too bad if the customer doesn't have internet...

Not sure what you mean by amp. Guitar amp? Not sure why you'd do that. Blow a hundred on a decent pair of cans and save up for good near-field monitors. Plug the guitar into the front right of the board and run headphones out the front left.

Don't feel bad about the confusion. I spent some time in recording school and I'm a recording retard. But I'm lazy, if I can get ideas down, that's good enough for me, I don't like to do multiple takes or worry about perfect sound.

I don't have a manual here, but I know it should work, I have a BR-864 and it does the job perfect (listen to demo on http://www.bluezet.tk)

I wouldn't try to use the effects live - they are meant to be used for recording only -

tip: you can listen to what you are playing using amp simulation and effects, but record the guitar "dry", so you can change amp simulation / effects later on

I sometimes use my overdrive pedals in front of the BR, because I like their sound, but all the rest - amp/cab simulation, delay, modulation, reverb... - I add at the mixing stage - too much fun to see how a track changes just changing amp (clean - overdriven - hi gain)
