Tascam’s MP-GT1 The First MP3 Player For Musicians [ Winter NAMM 2007 ]

United States
Pocket-Sized MP3 Player Features Slow-Speed Training and Guitar Effects

Anaheim, CA (January 18, 2007) — With the Variable-Speed Audition and guitar effects from their award-winning CD Trainers, TASCAM’s new MP-GT1 is the first MP3 player designed for musicians. It includes enough memory for storing over 200 songs, each of which can be slowed down, looped and processed to help musicians learn new music. A guitar input allows axe-slingers to rock along with thick overdrive and multi-effects, including a guitar canceller so they can play along with the best bands in the world. A tuner, metronome, and built-in rechargeable battery are also included. All of this is packed into a player smaller than a stomp box, so you can carry it anywhere the road takes you.

“TASCAM’s best-selling CD Trainers invented a new category of tools that inspired thousands of musicians to get better at their instruments,” says Paul Jenkins, National Sales Manager for TASCAM. “The new MP-GT1 brings this power to the next generation of musicians, making it even more portable and compatible with the millions of MP3s available for instant purchase online. The distinctive design tells everyone the owner is a musician, and is sure to become as common as string winders in guitar cases everywhere.”

The MP-GT1 loads up MP3s and charges its built-in battery through a high-speed USB connector. Musicians can zip through their MP3 collection using dedicated buttons and a graphical LCD display. MP3s can be played at slower speed without changing the pitch, and sections can be seamlessly looped while practicing tricky passages. Song playback can be pitched up or down to match the tuning of an instrument, and a Guitar Cancel function nukes the recorded guitar part so the musician can play along. A rechargeable 9-hour lithium ion battery is built into the unit, and an optional power supply is also available.
