Expanded Recording Time

No need to worry about trackrecord lengths. With a 1GB Compact Flash card onboard, the BR-900CD Version 2 provides up to 500 minutes of recording time.

New COSM Amps Onboard

It’s a dream collection for guitarists. Direct from BOSS’s top-of-the-line GT-Pro come 46 types of COSM guitar-amp models. Simply plug in and explore an amazing treasure trove of tone without the cost and hassle of dealing with physical amplifiers.

New Ways to Groove

The original BR-900CD was equipped with a built-in drum machine. Version 2 has a virtual drummer onboard as well, but with an advantage: a downloadable graphical Rhythm Editor software for creating rhythm pattern and arrangements visually via Mac or PC. It’s the best of both worlds.

Notes: Graphical Rhythm Editor software available via free download. It is not bundled with the BR-900CD. Editor software is also compatible with BR-600.
