GB-10 and LR-10 MP3 instrument trainers add recording to educational feature set 22/09/10
Tascam tell us that they are reinventing music education once again with the GB-10 Guitar/Bass Trainer/Recorder and LR-10 Instrumental Trainer/Recorder. Here's what they have to say about them...
Like our CD and MP3 trainers and recorders, the new trainers slow down and loop MP3 files without changing their pitch to help musicians learn new songs and licks. The latest generation features CD-quality recording with overdub to build up an arrangement. The SD card slot includes a 2GB card, and the new tabletop design makes them the perfect tools for music students, hobbyists or professionals to perfect their instruments.
The GB-10 Guitar/Bass Trainer/Recorder has a 1/4" guitar input and effects like amp modeling, delay and reverb for practicing using headphones. Adjust the balance of your instrument to play along with the music. A tuner and metronome are also included for precision playback, and a footswitch input allows hands-free control.
TASCAM's LR-10 is designed for strings, wind players, keyboardists, vocalists or any other musician. Use it to loop and transcribe your favorite music, record lessons or capture new song ideas. The LR-10 has a built-in microphone and speaker for recording and playback, and like the GB-10 includes a tuner and metronome.
