Hello, it´s been 2 weeks since I got my Boss Br
-800. It looks great and I have already recorded couple of tracks, there are just certain questions to which I cannot find the answers neither in manual nor anywhere else and it is keeping me from really getting the work done. First of all, I cant hear the sound from PC. When I connect my Boss to the PC and set it as a primary output device, no sound comes from my 5,1 sound system connected to PC. Anyway to repair this? This is connected with the rhythm editor, where I need to hear the song in order to create drum patterns. Is there a way to fix this?
Another thing is, how to record from a certain point in a song? I mean, is there a way to set the device to start recording from a certain moment? When you record stuff, you do mistakes and it is not that great to record the whole track again, there must be some way, how to play the song and than record from a certain moment that you set (probably the moment when you made a mistake). Or when you want to start recording from the half of the song. It is unpractical to have another person press play button, there should be a way to set the metronome to do 4 beats and than you start your recording (this is what I have seen in pro tool, when I was recording in the studio).
Another thing, how to record 8 tracks? First 4 tracks are clear, but than you have 5/6 and 7/8. Do they stand for one track each, or for two? How does it work then? And can I use more V-tracks, so that I would have for instance 10 tracks in one song?
Any help will be very appreciated, because these problems are keeping from doing, what really matters - recording songs.
