Inspiration Insurance

Inspiration is spontaneous, and BackTrack™ is your guitar’s instant replay button. Easy to use, BackTrack captures everything you play without ever hitting record.

Always on, BackTrack begins recording as soon as it detects a signal. Just plug into the quiet 1/4-inch input and start playing. And use the 1/4-inch output for immediate playback. Just set it and forget it for total inspiration control.

Pressing the “Mark” button designates what you just played as special and separates it for easy review. The Forward and Reverse buttons provide instant recall of marked and non-marked ideas.

BackTrack can capture up to 12 hours of audio. Saved as .WAV files to a rugged 1-GB flash memory, the audio is easily transferred via USB 2.0 to your computer or recording software for further recording, editing or mixing. The USB connection also recharges the internal battery to its full capacity of over 8 hours.

Sleek and low-profile, BackTrack fits in your gig bag as easily as it fits into your setup. At rehearsal, at the gig or at home, BackTrack is fully dedicated to capturing everything you play.

Whats's Under The Hood

BackTrack™ and BackTrack™ + Mic provide intuitive sets of features crucial for capturing all your revelations, epiphanies and great musical ideas.

  • Up to stunning 24-bit, 48 kHz audio
  • Up to 12 hours of audio capture
  • 1/4-inch guitar input
  • 1/4-inch output
  • Drag .WAV files to your computer via USB 2.0
  • Rechargeable via USB
  • Over 8 hours of battery life
  • Looped playback


What are some of the differences between BackTrack™ and BackTrack™ + Mic?
The biggest differences: BackTrack + Mic features a microphone and a 1/8-inch headphone output, BackTrack does not. Both feature similar features, though, including variable sample rates and bit depth, which are shown here:

Backtrack vs. Backtrack + mic

How much audio can I record?
At their capacities, BackTrack + Mic can capture up to 24 hours of audio and BackTrack can capture up to 12 hours but it depends on the sample rate and bit depth you’ve chosen. At 16-bit/44.1 kHz (standard CD audio), BackTrack + Mic can capture six hours of audio whereas BackTrack can capture only three hours.

What's the big button on top?
That’s the “Mark” button and it’s a great feature. After playing something really special, press “Mark”. Your marked ideas are stored in a separate folder on the flash drive so when you go to drag your ideas off your BackTrack to import them into your recording software, your best ideas will be there waiting for you.

What's with the USB connection?
BackTrack and BackTrack + Mic each have a USB connection for two main reasons:
• To transfer your ideas to your recording software.
• To recharge the battery.

What's the best way to use BackTrack?
There’s no best way to use BackTrack. It’s equally effective at home, on stage, at rehearsal or anywhere else you’re playing.

What kind of file is the recorded audio?
Everything you record is saved as .WAV files. These high-quality audio files will sound great when imported into your recording software.

What's automatic gain control in BackTrack + Mic?
Automatic gain control guards against clipping and overloading, and helps maintain an even level when you’re recording using the microphone.

How do I import files from my BackTrack into my recording software?
It can vary so we recommend that you read your software’s manual but, with most applications, it’s as easy as dragging an audio file right onto a track.

Line 6 BackTrack Reviews


Line 6 BackTrack

I bought this about 2 weeks ago and I have had it plugged in every time I play. Its such a simple thing to use and really works well. Theres no chance of coming up with something good and forgetting it ever again. For the price you really cant complain. Have found I can pretty much plug anything else into it too (bass, keyboard) and the quality is still the same. I have even used it to jam along with after recording some riffs. For the price it really is a cool gadget!


Line6 Backtrack

Didn\'t have this long when it refused to capture audio.
The dark blue light blinks and will not glow steadily.
Recourse to Line6 support shows that this problem is not an isolated one. No solution has been found yet.It will still \'force record\" but that means taking your hands off the fretboard and defeats the declared purpose of the unit.
A nice idea but flawed.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
