TASCAM Launches GT-R1 Portable Recorder


TASCAM has launched the GT-R1, a new portable recorder for guitar and bass players. Based on TASCAM's DR-1 recorder, the company say that the GT-R1 adds features from their groundbreaking guitar trainers for the ultimate songwriters sketchpad. A pair of built-in condenser microphones captures rehearsals and live shows, or musicians can plug directly into the instrument input to record with amp simulation and effects. The GT-R1 includes a rhythm player for instant inspiration, and a 1GB SD Card and rechargeable battery are included to get started right away.
Paul Jenkins, Vice President of Sales for TASCAM, told us, "TASCAM has once again redefined what a compact studio looks like. Many of us at TASCAM are guitar players who have dreamed of a high-quality songwriting tool like this. The GT-R1 can be used as a portable recorder, an instrument trainer, tuner, metronome and almost anything else musicians need."
