The Tascam LR-10 USB Instrument Trainer/Recorder allows string, wind instrument, brass players, keyboard players and vocalists to learn and record new music. It is the ideal practice tool for musicians of any skill level to build their technique. A tuner and metronome are also built-in for precision playback.

The unit can be used in many ways. One way is to simply plug an instrument into the 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo line input, or record into the built-in stereo microphone. Music can be recorded to the included 2GB SD card with an overdub mode to build arrangements.

            Comments about Tascam LR-10 USB Instrument Trainer/Recorder:

            I use this when I practice guitar and ukulele. I can record my practices using the line-in and mic input and listen to it through the internal speaker or headphone output. The built-in tuner and metronome are helpful to get quickly ready for practice, and for learning to stay in rhythm. I really love the overdub feature which allows me to layer on different parts of an ensemble arrangement without having to have a band! As the instructions mention, I did need to connect my guitar and ukulele to the LR-10 line in input through an amp or effect pedal with a line/phone output. You may get sound from the LR-10 headphone output, but definitely not from the internal speaker. The menu system is very straightforward to use though some may find it requires a number of button pushing to get to a feature. Be sure to check out the Tascam website for firmware updates. Overall a great little device.

              This is the best audio recorder I ever bought. I use it to record my violin's practice sessions. It captures the sound of my violin remarkably well and without hiss. The play-back sound is great when used with earphones but poor with the built in speaker. The screen could have been made bigger and the access to the erase mode easier. Beside's that, I think the quality of the recording is as good as the ones I get with high tech home studio equipment.

              Very satisfied!

                  Comments about Tascam LR-10 USB Instrument Trainer/Recorder:

                  Easy to use and it works as advertised. Having used it a short time - it has already made my practice time more efficient.

                  Wish the screen was a bit bigger and the option of backlighting would be helpful.

                  An option for the flashback feature to be longer than 10 seconds would be nice, but this is very minor as you can hit play more than once.

                  Very happy and would highly recommend!
