Boss BR-800 Training DVD Tutorial

A new training DVD aimed at helping musicians understand their Boss BR-800 has just been released by, the frontrunner in instructional DVDs for musicians and studio owners. Details of the Boss BR-800 DVD can be found here.

This DVD tutorial is not only a review of all the functions and features of the Boss BR-800, it's also like an updated visual version of the owner's manual hosted by veteran trainer David Wills.

"I wanted to explain all of the cool things that the Boss BR-800 can do, but also demonstrate a ton of features that aren't expanded on in the user manual," said David Wills, owner or

"The Boss BR-800 has so many powerful features that most people are only using a small fraction of what it can do. In this DVD we go through everything.

"My goal is to make it like you have a private consultation on all the features of the Boss BR-800 and to quickly bring you up to speed on the entire unit. Why review the whole user manual when you can get quick up-close visual training on specific subjects?"

The Boss BR-800 has gained so much interest from people who are on the fence of whether they want to record to hardware or software. While the unit is an excellent hardware recorder, it is equally at home as a USB audio interface or surface controller. This DVD is over 2.5 hours long with many demonstrations of both sides of the unit.

David Wills has produced over 50 training DVDs in the nearly 20 years since he launched As an Audio Engineer and Consultant for artists such as Michael Jackson, Phil Collins, Earth, Wind & Fire and Diana Ross, David brings real world experience from the pro world but in any easy going conversational style of presentation.
