All of the BR-1180’s menus that are not CD or effects related can be found under the UTILITY button. That includes SONG and TRACK menus as well as menus that take us to SYSTEM related and many other functions. To turn on the phantom power supply use the following procedure: 1) Press UTILTY 2) CURSOR to “System”. A mic’s directionality helps determine its usefulness in a specific recording environment. You can tell how a mic will “hear” by noting its pickup or polar pattern. There are three basic types of pattern. Omnidirectional An omnidirectional (or omni) microphone is sensitive to sound a full 360 degrees around the head of the mic, its capsule. The BR-1180 also has a de-esser as part of its vocal multi effects. If you are miking a section try pointing a bidirectional mike down over the section. For miking a single flute place the mike a few inches away from the head joint between the mouthpiece and the left hand.http://alicartours.com/imagenes_alicar/bose-acoustimass-5-repair-manual.xml

Stereo Microphone Techniques As mentioned earlier, the BR-1180 is capable of recording one or two channels at one time. We could record two different signals at one time or we can actually employ stereo mic techniques if a situation calls for it. For Keyboards and modules and drum machines use the stereo line inputs as most of these instruments are stereo. It is a crucial part of the recording process to be aware how these are set as they will affect the quality of your recording. For starters we will discuss gain structure as it applies to INPUT MODE. It occurs when a signal goes above digital 0db on your meters or the signal overdrives the inputs themselves. It is a most undesired effect as it sounds like a static crackle or pop. In the days of tape based recording. On the BR-1180 you can record on an alternate V-Track on the same channel. You could record the second take on V-2 the third on V-3 etc. With a foot pedal. To set up your BR-1180 for doing punch in and punch out using a foot pedal use the following procedure: 1) Press UTILITY. You can insert an effect using the BR-1180’s internal effects processor by simply pressing the EFFECTS COSM button so that it is lit. By default, turning this on inserts an effect in the path of whatever INPUT is selected. The individual sends for the LOOP EFFECTS on the BR-1180 are post fade sends. To apply Reverb to the MIC 1 input, use the following procedure: 1) Press REVERB. On the BR-1180 you can select the type of room (ROOM or HALL) and you can select the simulated distance of the source and the surfaces (REVERB TIME). These types of effects create a change of the signal over time. Dynamic Effects Dynamic effects are effects that manipulate volume in some way. Dynamic effects are typically insert effects. To boost or cut frequencies on a track in the BR-1180 use the following procedure: 1) Press the EQ button.

Ideally, if you have great sounding instruments and the right microphones and techniques and the tracks are recorded well, then you will never have to “fix”. One track represents the left channel and the other track represents the right channel. For clarity, most music is mixed so that the listener gets different sonic “images” from the left and right sides. We refer to this effect as a stereo image. There is a compressor that is part of the effects chain for the vocal and guitar multi effects and there. Because editing on a BR-1180 is “non-destructive” if you decide that you don’t like the edit you can UNDO that edit. To access the track edit menus press UTILITY, CURSOR to TRACK and then press ENTER. Always go back and listen to your edit. If you don’t like what you hear press UNDO. The BR-1180 Owner’s Manual has a step by step walk through for every track edit on pages 66-74. A scene is basically a “picture” of your current settings. Scenes “remember” all of your fader positions as well as pan and EQ settings, effects send levels and insert effect parameters. You can call up a scene manually or have scenes change automatically while a song is playing. The mix down mode on the BR-1180 is the BOUNCE mode. Press the REC MODE button so that BOUNCE is lit.With the BR-1180 you certainly can take your mix down tracks straight to CD but if you really want to refine that two track mix so that is sounds as loud or dynamic as a song on the radio or a commercial CD the you will want to master your song. Track at Once is for writing one song at a time onto a CD. 1) Place a blank CD-R in the disk drive. You can create arrangements from preset drum patterns or from patterns that you create from scratch or from imported midi files. Listed are the parameters that you will be working with for putting together an arrangement. Or you could play in notes using an external MIDI controller plugged into the BR-1180’s MIDI IN jack.

The pattern will continue to loop around so that you can overdub drum parts in real time. The BR-1180 has its own internal memory to store audio loops. When a sample is imported it can be assigned to a track or it can be imported to one of 8 banks of 50 for use in the rhythm arranger. Put the sequencer into its external midi sync mode. (The terminology will vary on different sequencers and drum machines. The BR-1180 is a hard disk recorder. The same as you would find in a laptop computer. As a computer hard drive is a spinning magnetic media it is very important to take care of the drive as well as what is on it. If that person uses software to record music then you could mail to them a CD with wave file versions of your tracks. The manual No part of this publication may be reproduced in any form Refer all servicing to your retailer, the nearest Roland Service Center, or an authorized Roland distributor, as listed on the “Information” sheet. If using some other make of connection cable, please note the following precautions. With this disk you can record up to approximately 200 hours or more in LV2 mode (in terms of mono tracks). What are V-Tracks? Each track consists of eight virtual tracks, and you can choose any one of these tracks for recording or playback. By holding down this button and pressing either IN or OUT, you can erase the location that was stored at the respective button. The indicator of the corresponding button will go dark. Red: The track is now being recorded Lighting alternately in orange and green: This track contains recorded data and is selected for recording. Avoid using the unit immediately after it has been moved to a location with a level of humidity that is greatly different than its former location. Stereo Headphones MIDI Sequencer CD Recorder etc. Follow the procedure given below to listen to a demo song. The song you selected will be loaded. The TRS jack accepts either balanced or unbalanced input.

The XLR connector accepts balanced input (pin 2 hot). This connector also features optional phantom power (refer to “Using condenser mics”. The effect pedals that a guitarist connects between his guitar and amp are a type of insert effect. The rhythm guide can also be used as a metronome when you are not recording. By using the rhythm guide during recording, you can use the track editor to edit in units of measures, synchronize outputs with an external device, and perform other useful operations. The tempo becomes that in which you tapped. Effective use of these allows you to add greater breadth to the sound. What is a loop effect. Effects connected to the send and return of mixer effects are called “loop effects.”. Use the following procedure to set the function of the FOOT SW jack. Recording automatically starts at the auto punch-in location, so start playing what you want to record. This allows a wide range of uses, such as recording one take of a guitar solo or vocal, and then recording another take without having to erase the first one. These are grouped according to different input sources and each group is called a “bank.”. Follow the procedure below to change where insert effects are connected. Speaker modeling can be used to compare the sound of. The selected speaker model is applied to the output sound. For more on the different types of speaker modeling, refer to the “Speaker Modeling Patch List”. The speaker modeling name can now be edited. By using this function, you can instantly change the current location simply by specifying the number of a previously registered marker. This is also very convenient during editing. Copying recorded data (Track Copy) Track Copy allows you to copy a specific portion of recorded data and then place it in a different location. After the recorded data is moved, the location it was in will be left empty. This operation can be used to move multiple tracks of recorded data at once.

Example: exchanging all the data on track 1 with all the data on track 2 fig.R10-20 Track1 Track2 Track1 Track2. If you wish to add a phrase in the middle of the previously recorded data, you should add a blank of the same length as the phrase, and then record the new phrase in the blank area. Set the following items. START (start point): Specify the location at which the blank will be inserted. LEN (Length): Specify the length of the blank. In some cases, the amount of memory used by unneeded data cannot be ignored, and more hard disk space than necessary is used. Corrects the timing to the nearest thirty-second- note triplet. OFF Quantization is not applied. The data is recorded as is with no correction of the timing. 3. The loop phrase is erased from the rhythm arrangement. When “DEL” is selected: Loop phrases following the erased loop phrase are shifted forward. When “ERASE” is selected: The location of the erased loop phrase is left blank. There is no change made to other loop phrases. Production of audio CDs requires the optional CDI-BR-1 drive. When the current location is prior to Start, the volume is set to zero, and as a result, no sound will be output even when the recorder is playing back. Once the current location passes the Start point, the sound gradually begins to come up. When an audio CD is played back on an ordinary CD player, the seconds before the start of a song may be indicated by a minus sign, as in “-3, -2, -1.”. However, you can write additional songs to the disc later on. If you want to play back the CD on a regular CD player, then finalize for this purpose. If this is pressed close to the beginning of the track, it goes back to the beginning of the preceding track. The track will rewind while you hold down the button. Types of data that can be backed up: EFFECTS Insert effect patch user banks are saved. START (Start Point): Specifies the export-source track’s start point.Using the sync track to synchronize the external sequencer.

Recording stops automatically once this limit is surpassed. Recording of the MIDI clock stops automatically when playback on the external sequencer finishes, and the top screen returns to the display. Using an external MIDI sequencer or similar device, you can record and play back TRACK fader information to get automated control for your mixes. The right and left part will display a tuning guide to indicate the difference between the input sound and the displayed note. GLOBAL icon When this icon is selected, the tuner’s reference pitch and parameters for each of the utility icons are initialized to their factory settings. The message “Now Loading.”. This is not a malfunction. If the noise is objectionable, make adjustments while the sound is not playing. Feedback This parameter adjusts the amount of feedback. Changing the amount of feedback causes the number of time the delayed sound is repeated to change as well. The algorithms that can be selected will differ for each bank. To select the algorithm that you wish to use, first select the effect bank that includes that algorithm, and then refer to the separate “Effect Patch List”. COSM VOCAL COMP This is a multi-effect designed for vocals. MIC MODELING This modifies sound that was recorded by a conventional dynamic mic, lapel mic or direct line, causing it to sound as though it had been recorded by an expensive condenser mic. For the guitar, you can produce an amp sound using a preamp and speaker simulator. fig.S02-15 (MIC) Compressor 4Band Equalizer Noise Suppressor Delay (GUITAR) Compressor PreAmp. Acoustic Guitar Simulator This simulates the sound of an acoustic guitar. It allows you to use an electric guitar to produce sounds similar to those of an acoustic guitar. Larger values will result in a sharper attack, creating a more clearly defined sound. Sustain (When set to BOSSCmp, D-Comp) Boosts low-level signals, adjusting the time over which sounds are sustained. Type This Parameter selects the type of delay.

SINGLE: This is a simple delay. TAP: The delayed sound is panned across the left and right channels. Threshold Adjusts this as appropriate for the inputs signal. When the input signal level exceeds this threshold level, limiting will be applied. Input Select the type of mic that was actually used to record. Roland DR-20 DR-20: Small Dynamic Microphone Sml.Dy: Head-worn Dynamic Microphone Hed.Dy: Miniature Condenser Microphone Min.Cn:. Since it suppresses the noise in synchronization with the envelope of the sound (the way in which the sound decays over time), it has very little effect on the sound, and does not harm the natural character of the sound. CLEAN: The sound of a conventional built-in tube amp. CRUNCH: Allows you to obtain a crunch effect that creates a natural distortion. Speaker Simulator This simulates the characteristics of various types of speakers.The frequency of the filter will rise. DOWN: The frequency of the filter will fall. Sensitivity This adjusts the sensitivity at which the filter will change in the direction determined by the polarity setting. Gain Adjusts the gain (amount of boost or cut) for the low frequency trimmer. Frequency Specifies the center frequency of the low frequency trimmer. High Freq Trimmer (high frequency trimmer) Adjusts the high frequency. This allows you to achieve the optimal level when mixing down to MD or DAT, and when using CD-R disks to create your own original audio CDs. ExpM: Release This sets the time it takes for the midrange expander effect to stop once the input level exceeds the Middle threshold level. CompH: Release This sets the time it takes for the upper-range compressor effect to stop once the input level falls below the Hi threshold level. If this does not resolve the problem, contact a nearby Roland service center or your dealer. Problems with the sound. Is the MIDI cable connected correctly. Is the MIDI cable broken.

Has the sync generator been set to the desired synchronization method (MTC or MIDI Clock)? (p. Cannot Select Same Track.A newly created song provides approximately 20,000 events per song. No Data!

And with killer BOSS effects and a separate Rhythm Track with sampled drum sounds, there’s nothing you can’t do with a BR-1180. Storing songs Powering down I am a novice to this technology and this has unravelled the mysteries of the unit brilliantly. R R.B. Boss review Very helpful information and instructions since I did not receive instruction manual with my device. Learned a lot and easy to follow step by step methodology. G G. BR-1180 DVD Tutorial review The DVD provided easy to follow instruction on all of the key features of the BR-1180. The step by step close-up shots of the recorder in use made it very easy to understand how to execute each feature in the proper sequence. Although the drum machine section is something that is not applicable to the music I play, it was good information to know if I ever want to add rhythm tracks to other types of music. I look forward to purchasing the Ultimate Home Recording course in the near future. L L. Quite imformative and I am very pleased It is a manual and I found it to be very useful as I don't retain what I've read as well as I once did.

It answered all my questions about the functions of this unit and I would buy other products of this type from the seller. In its absence I still believe the DVD was more helpful than not having it and I would recommend it to anyone purchasing a BR-1200 who is not already familiar with a similar system. G G.J. Boss BR1180 I purchased the Boss a year ago, and have struggled with the written making some great recordings. I found the demo video of the training Tutorial CD on Youtube and bought this full version recently. It has been extremely helpful to me. The presentation is easy to follow and it makes very clear to implement the instructions. Many features I ignored before (i.e. auto punch in) are now used with superb results. It has helped me to produce far better demonstrations of my songs for potential clients. Thanks a million. J J.P. Excellent Product and Service!!! I was very pleased with the item as it arrived on time and was exactly what I was expecting for what I had ordered.

It spends 116 pages showing you how to mic up instruments and singers using enormous diagrams and only 74 pages on operating the BR1180. The only thing I learnt from it was setting up your own metronome patterns as a click track. It mentions then ignores the Mastering Tool Box function of which the manual is a little vague. Make sure you are running Version 2 software and manual for your recorder (available from Boss) with several improvements. My advice for this digital recorder would be to learn from setting yourself small recording projects, making notes on where you struggled and how you resolved the difficulties. A decent condenser mic gets good quality sound into the device without you having to do much eq-ing. Happy recording!Sorry, we failed to record your vote.

Amazon Customer 5.0 out of 5 stars. Note that many CD manufacturers have recently begun outsourcing their CDs to different countries and quality control has gone down. While certain CD brands have worked well in the past, this is no longer the case now. Look for CD-Rs manufactured at the Taiyo Yuden plant in Japan. Below are a few brands that we have had good success with: Taiyo Yuden, Discmakers, Microboards, Plextor, Apogee, BASF, HHB, and Mitsui Gold. Avoid common off the shelf, low quality and error prone CDs such as Memorex, TDK, Maxell, Sony, Imation and Verbatum. 2. POWER SUPPLY Be sure that you're using a BOSS PSB-3U or PSB-7U power supply only--3rd party power supplies can cause the unit to not operate properly. 3.

MALFUNCTION CD-DRIVE Try playing a commercially produced CD (not a CD burned from the unit) using the recorder's CD Player feature. You can view the steps for playing an audio CD on page 105 of the owner's manual: BR-1180 Owner's Manual If you can’t perform either of these operations, your recorder may need service. However you may try a local service center and ask them if they can service: 4. HARD DRIVE FRAGMENTATION Hard drive fragmentation can prevent devices (such as a computer or digital recorder) from operating properly. The only way to defragment a hard drive is to re-format the drive. This erases all of its data, and returns the drive to its original, non-fragmented state.Submit a request.
