New MP3 Player Offers Variable-Speed Playback, Guitar Effects

Portable Variable Speed MP3 PlayerNAMM: TASCAM calls their new MP-GT1 “the first MP3 player designed for musicians”. The portable audio player features Variable-Speed playback and guitar effects.

The MP-GT1 includes enough memory for storing over 200 songs, each of which can be slowed down, looped and processed to help you learn new music. A guitar input lets guitarists play along with thick overdrive and multi-effects, including a guitar canceller so you can play along with the Zeppelin.

A tuner, metronome, and built-in rechargeable battery are also included.

The MP-GT1 loads up MP3s and charges its built-in battery through a high-speed USB connector. 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.
