Recorder for developing songs

Hi, I am new to the forum. I am looking for a small digital recorder/multitrack that will enable me to record vocal passages, create loops and then overdub to develop composition ideas. I want something really simple and intuitive. Anyone have experience of the Boss micro multitrack or its successor the BR-80? Or anything similar?

Peace,
Bardo

Re: Recorder for developing songs

Multi-nominated and awarding-winning songwriter James Blume can barely play any notes on a guitar or piano. He keeps a little digital recorder with him and hums melodies and lyrics into it. Later, piecing them together and getting together with a guitar playing friend to flesh out chords and arrangement.

As for what you can do at home. Get a USB interface for musical instruments. I have the Guitarface II interface. It was like $35 USD. The studio condenser mic I use was cheaper than that. The most expensive mic I have is the Sennheiser e835 dynamic stage mic, which I bought on ebay for $74.99 (and free shipping.) About half of retail.

And then record into Audacity, which is freeware downloadable just about anywhere. Note: you will also need to download an aftermarket LAME mp3 encoder plug-in, also free, so that you can export sound files to mp3, if that is your wish.

That would be more than ample enough to make mult- track vocals. You can import karaoke sound files if they are in a compatible format, such as mp3 or avi or ogg. All of my stuff I have submitted was recorded with Audacity.
