Mark II series of Tascam portable CD Trainers now include improved effects, metronome and more
The new Mark II Guitar, Bass and Vocal Trainers are the latest introductions in the portable CD trainer line – a product category literally invented by Tascam. Like the CD-GT1 and the follow-ups CD-BT1 and CD-VT1, the Mark II trainers have the ability to slow down the speed of a CD without changing the pitch, or to alter speed and pitch of playback at the same time. This allows musicians to learn fast licks, rhythm parts and solos from their favorite artists. The three models also have new effects for even better reverb and amp simulation. A new metronome helps musicians practice even when a CD isn\'t playing.
The new Guitar Canceller effect with selectable cancelling point on the Guitar Trainer enables players to virtually mute the guitar part so that they can play along. The Bass and Vocal Trainers include an advanced cancellation option for better elimination of the original bass or vocal track. And finally, all of the CD Trainers have a new split monitor function which offers the possibility to route the original CD to one side and an instrument to the other side of the stereo output.
