Boss BR600 + Alesis iO14 Firewire

Recommended Posts

Looking for a new recording tool (Zoom r16), so here goes!

Boss BR600

About 2 years old now I think. Still in decent nick. Comes with upgraded 1gb compact flash and original 32 MB one too. Last one went for 130 on here, so would be looking for around that. Bought for 200. Comes in soft case. Will chuck in the orginal xlr to 1/4" adapter and the other one I bought.

Here's what Boss have to say; BR-600 | BR Digital Recording Gears

Alesis iO14 Firewire

Really great firewire interface at a reasonable price. 4 xlr in mic preamps onboard and it can be connected via ADAT to another set of preamps for up to 14 channels simultaneous recording (e.g. Behringer ADA8000 for another 8 mic preamps.)

Because it is firewire all these channels will be recorded separately not just on a mono/stereo track as is the case with USB interfaces.

Firewire cable included. Looking for about the same as the BR600.

As always, open to offers.

Thanks!

the boss is tempting for laying down ideas at practice

Srsly man, if you get a decent sounding room (square, with a little bit of acoustic spongy stuff - so nothing special, a tom's room basically) and an ok sounding kit you can get some good demos. Especially useful if you have a drummer/bassist/guitarist with a knack for forgetting beats/plods/licks.

Import and export is super easy too. I used the import to lay down some demo vocals for a metal band and they turned out ok, imported some accapella hip hop beats too and rapped over it too. It was amazing. The export is just a case of connecting it then a drag and drop. It's imported as WAV so easily convertible to mp3 etc.

The built in condensors punch well above their weight. good room mics, like i say. Have a think about it.

Would you be up for a swap for Alesis iO14 Firewire?

Or if I can get a buyer for the drum kit, then I will have it of you if you still have it.

For this. Diy drum kit plus Alesis tigger Io. Without bass pedal and seat

I have changed my mind again. Both back up for sale.

Paranoid can have first dibs on the boss if still interested?

Still going with 100 for the Alesis and 110 for the Boss. Bargains, ken?

Like I say the Alesis comes with firewire cable and Boss comes with flash memory upgraded to 1 gb.

The Boss is basically sold. The Alesis however is still very much available.

This is firewire mind... 4 simulataneous tracks to your computer (i.e. you can record drums)
