Question about Boss Micro BR Digital Recorder

Is the Boss Dr-5 compatable with the Boss BR-1180 mini studio?

I have The Boss Dr-5 (Dr. Rhythm) Drum machine and my friend has the Boss BR-1180 CD recording device. I recently brought it over to his house to see if I could just plug it into the midi input and fire away but no such luck. Is there some way to make my drum patterns on the dr-5 play on the br-1180?

The beats you have programmed into the drum machine will not play through the midi cable. In order to do what you want you need to connect the audio output from the drum machine to the audio input of the br-1180. What you should then do is connect the MIDI out of the the br1180 to the midi in of the Dr5. This will allow you to start and stop the drum machine with the play button on the br1180. MIDI can be a complicated thing so be sure to RTFM about MIDI for both of your BOSS devices to understand what they can do to work together. Good Luck

Midi doesn't actually "make sound". If your trying to record the patterns you made on the DR-5 to the recorder you need to use an audio output(I don't remember if they are RCA or 1/4" on the DR-5.) The midi output would be used to"trigger sounds" in another device that has sounds built in, or you could also trigger sounds in a program that supports midi input.

hdd should not be damaged, if your hd and cd are on same ide cable it might be taking the cd as master and not the hd, ensure the jumper on the back of the new cd drive is set in the same position as the old one was, as test remove cd and boot system, hd should act again as usual. this will show that there is a ide conflict.

my assumption is that your cd jumper should be set to slave or cable select position.
you may have to try each until you find the position that works.

I hope this was useful.

regards Martin.

What do I need to burn a cd from my pc with the br 1180


This Is real simple grab a cable that goes from rca jacks to a headphone jack then plug the rca jacks into the br-1180's audio out jack and then plug the other end into your computers mic port.
Download Audacity From www.Audacity.com and then use it to capture you audio and then you can burn that when complete.
Its real simple I do it all the time even though I have the br-1180cd the cd burner burns real quiet so I don't use it. The cable can be bought at radio shack, best buy, wal-mart and I have even seen them at 99 cent only stores.
If you have more question let me know This Is my main unit so I know a lot about it.
Sincerely,
Michael Scott

No CD writer for Boss BR-1180


Hey mike yeah you can hook a regular cdr drive to the ribbon but the problem is if its not a slim it most likely wont fit inside the unit. Also the built in c.d r is way over rated mine has it and I still bounce it all onto my computer and then burn it from there. The one on the br-1180cd burns very quiet.

MY Boss br 1180 ,disk error


before you go out and buy a new hd try intializing your system.
unfortunaly you will lose all saved info, but you will either way. this test may save you some money.
with your 1180 in the off position press and hold the track 5 button below the fader and the redo/undo button that is just to the left of the rotarty knob and below the power button. while holding these two buttons press the power button and continue to hold the track 5 button and the undo redo buttons untill the test menu is showing. its takes about 15- 30 sec. in the test menu rotate the value knob till you see 23 initialize HDD and press ok. this process may take up to 30 mins. if this doesnt fixya then contact roland for a replacement.
