Nice tool to have

Very nice to slow down the tunes and play in the same key. The loop is really nice. Thanks again Sweetwater.
Music background: Just started up after not playing for 25 years.

Great product, I use it every day for practice .

Love this thing. I can slow down CDs and learn the timing and licks to play along with on guitar. The effects are great once you tweek alittle bit ,very usable sounds for rocking out.. Easy to use product and everyone that has seen mine wants one . Recommend that you get one as it is a great training tool and also can be used as just a CD player too. I run mine through my sterio headphone jack and I can play along with my favorite band.

Worth every dime for a beginner guitarist

The CD-GT2 is incredible help, especially if you're a beginner guitarist. The tempo control decreases the speed of the song allowing you to listen and learn combining notes, riffs, and rhythm sections. Then I use the loop capability to play it over and over again until I can increase the speed to normal time. These two features alone are so awesome I haven't used some of the other effects available. Great product...wish I would have know about it a year ago...it's like having a teacher available 100% of the time...

Again, thanks for the great deal. Although I teach technology ( business strategy, not at the molecular techie level ) this unit is amazing for both its value and functionalities. I think you guys at Sweetwater value customer feedback, so here it is: * Very intuitive and easy interface. * It has dedicated keys or buttons for most features ( tempo, key, loop in/out. etc. ) So, unlike products where each key may have multiple functions it is a piece of cake to access the main feature with just, for me, scanning the manual. * The unit delivers. Not only does it slow the speed down without changing pitch .. you can change the pitch or key too which is a must, for example if you want to copy SRV in open position where he detunes his guitar to E b. No problem, just move the key (pitch ) up a half step and playback is now in the key of E and you're ready to become frustrated ..with SRV that is. * Ever try to play along with a CD that is slightly out of tune? You can attempt to re-tune your guitar or just adjust the fine key/pitch to increments of 1/100th of a semi-tone. Fantastic! Ready to rock. * The unit sound good! * This unit has more features than I can almost count .. metronome, guitar effects, tuner, cancel lead guitar / karaoke, and more * Plug in your guitar and you are in the mix with the CD recording. What a blast. * Here are some constructive ideas / suggestions: o The manual is geared to headphone users but the unit has an output for connection to a PA / powered speakers, but the output is a 1/8 inch stereo mini-(female) jack ... so sales engineers might offer customers the opportunity to buy an adapter ...to convert a guitar cable from 1/4 to 1/8 or you can't play it through your amp or PA o Might remind buyers that when you enter a value or parameter there is no confirmation or enter key. Many displays will blink when you select something and stop blinking when your input value is accepted ... or have a separate enter key ....the manual has one small reference to the unit's logic/config ... so it might be worth mentioning that parameter/value selection is automatic and the user will not get a confirmation of entry or selection. Or, it could just be me. * Bottom-line - an indispensable learning tool at an unbelievably low price.
