The manual for the BR-900 looks like it should be easy enough to follow but for some reason just doesn't translate practically to using the device. David Wills covers a wide range of the BR-900's capabilities and communicates them through easy to understand demonstrations. Whenever he demonstrates a function, the camera angle shifts to directly above the device so you can easily see the display and what buttons he is pushing. Even with a cursory vewing of the DVD, you will be able to create multiple track recordings with ease. The DVD is divided into sections for quick reference so touching up on more sophisticated functions like effects, copying tracks, mastering, burning a cd, and computer interface is a quick process. The DVD really is the next best thing to having someone come into your house and teach you first hand how to use the BR-900.
