TASCAM Guitar MP3 Player

TEAC's creative audio branch, TASCAM, has just launched the MP-GT1. The company has billed its new device as the first digital audio player designed for guitarists and says it has added a number of unique features designed to help guitar players refine their skills as well as enjoy them. A guitar input jack is built in can be used to play along with MP3 tracks; the GT1 can even selectively cancel out the guitar elements from the original recording. The speed of the song is also adjustable without affecting the original pitch, while pitch itself can also be tuned to match the existing levels of the guitar. A special looping mode further helps for practice by repeating only a particular song passage; any track can have a metronome or guitar distortion effects overlay as well, TASCAM said.

Available in a single model, the MP-GT1 holds roughly 240 MP3 songs on 1GB of built-in flash. Straight playback of songs without effects is rated at 9 hours. The music player should be shipping now in the US and is available from several music stores for $200.
