I needed a portable audio recorder to capture some musical ideas as I am traveling. The BackTrack + Mic was perfect for this. It does not have a maze of menus and steps for preparation to record that would be a distraction to me. It is ready to record when you turn it on, easy to transfer files.
The direct line input for guitars is great for strapping on a guitar and capturing a great riff or chord progression. The mic is ready to use for acoustic guitars or a live rehearsal.
The price is outstanding and blows away all the competition. I saw this originally advertised for over $200 and found it here for about $45. The only place to get this price.
I keep this with me all the time with my iPod and can be ready for use in less than a minute. I am definitely recommending this to a couple of my close friends to get immediately. The price is right, the product is great.
Line 6 continues to put out very usable and innovative products. One of the main reasons I even considered this recorder was it a Line 6 product.
