Tascam GT-R1 overview

  • 1Description

The GT-R1 from Tascam combines a portable audio recorder with an instrument trainer to provide the ultimate device for musicians and songwriters. The GT-R1 features built-in stereo condenser mics, and can record MP3 or WAV files at resolutions up to 24-bit/48kHz to readily-available SD flash memory cards.

In addition to the on-board mics, the unit also offers a 1/4" input for connecting a guitar or bass. A 3.5mm mini line input allows you to connect an MP3 or CD player, and a 3.5mm powered mic jack lets you connect your favorite external mic. A 3.5mm mini output lets you connect headphones or speakers to the unit.

A USB port provides a quick and easy method for transferring your recordings to a Mac or PC for use in your DAW. If working in a DAW isn't your style, then you can take advantage of the GT-R1's built-in customization features. These features include the ability to loop sections, adjust speed without affecting pitch, and even cancel out a bass or guitar section, allowing you to play along with a track's original rhythm section.

Other great features of the GT-R1 include an amp simulator, allowing you to choose between several different amp sounds. Reverb and multi-effects add richness and depth to your sound, while a built-in rhythm machine provides terrific background beats. The unit even includes a metronome and a chromatic tuner for assisting you with warm ups and practice sessions.
