Product Description

You can't plan for inspiration. It just happens. And in the time it takes to setup recording gear the most inspired musical ideas can be lost forever.

BackTrack + Mic insures that your licks, riffs and songs will always be captured. Sitting with you and your guitar, this simple and sleek device is always listening and automatically recording every one of your revelations, epiphanies and great musical ideas.

You never even need to press record, as BackTrack + Mic captures audio whenever it hears you play or sing. As a standalone recorder, the sensitive mic with automatic gain control will capture crystal-clear vocals or acoustic guitar. With a guitar plugged in to it, the quiet 1/4-inch input will capture a stunning signal.

BackTrack + Mic is super simple to use. After you play something brilliant, press the "Mark" button to mark that idea as special. Featuring a 1/4-inch amp output and a 1/8-inch headphone output, BackTrack + Mic allows for easy instant reviewing of both marked and non-marked ideas.

BackTrack + Mic can capture up to 24 hours of audio. Saved as .WAV files to a rugged and reliable 2-GB flash memory, the captured audio can be easily transferred via USB 2.0 to a computer for further recording, editing, mixing or storage. The internal battery, providing over 8 hours of life, can be recharged via the USB connection.

Featuring a classic and low-profile look, BackTrack + Mic is small and light enough to be forgotten about (until you're incredibly thankful that you have it).

Box includes BackTrack + Mic and USB cable.

"Great sound and plenty of recording time"
Sound: Maybe the fact that it's made in China accounts for the negative reviews - the Chinese rep for variable quality control might account for a few bad models slipping through. I must have got one of the good ones as I think the sound quality is virtually studio and, in fact, I am now using it to record all my basic guitar and voice first tracks, transferring them to my DAW and then adding overdubs. So much more convenient than setting up my whole home studio. Feature: It's easy enough to locate and name tracks when you use the USB lead to connect it to the computer but it would be nice to have some sort of visual interface to help select tracks instead of just using the skip buttons - especially if you've done a few takes and have to decide which is which by ear! The 2GB capacity means plenty of good quality recording time and even more if you set it to a lower demo quality. Ease of Use: 5 minutes fiddling with it and I was an expert, very simple and easy to use. I actually got one for my daughter's birthday and was so impressed I bought another for myself - we're both songwriters and find them invaluable. Quality: Pretty sturdy - some kind of plastic but it feels solid enough. Unlike a previous reviewer, I had no problem with the mic grille. It's small, convenient, very portable and the sound, as I said, is surprisingly good. Value: The recommended price - 135 - is way too expensive, but most dealers are selling it for around 100. I got mine in a sale for 89 including postage and that feels like a good price. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had occasion to contact the company so can't comment. The Wow Factor: The small size means the buttons are a little bunched-up but that's a very minor point. I like the feel of it - no sharp edges - the look - sleek black curves - and the size - about two-thirds the size of my Boss compressor pedal and half the weight. It's very practical as an ideas notebook (and is getting a lot of use as that) but is also good enough to integrate its output into a formal recording session. Overall: I'll keep it until an affordable update with a few more inputs and a GUI turns up. If it were stolen, I'd get another if I could get a good price - the recommended price is definitely too high.

"Overrated, overpriced"
Sound: Sound quality is good Feature: The most useful feature is it's ability to constantly be 'on' and record ready. I wish however it had a delete button. I like that the battery is rechargeable. The amount of recording time/memory is great - lots of it. Ease of Use: It is very easy to use and the quality is not bad. Even the mic records reasonably well. The manual is small because there is not a whole lot to learn. Quality: It is not well made, the mic grill rattles - it is made in China (say no more!)In all fairness, the sound quality is good, but I find it just as much a hassle to use as a regular recorder or loop-station. The product starting making hideous crackling noises during playback, then it died altogether. You are probably thinking that it sounds like it needed recharging, but it was on charge for hours before hand. For a while I could not see the device on the Mac screen and the device would not light up no matter what I twiddled (and there's not much to twiddle). Eventually I managed to revive it by pushing a pin into the tiny hole in the back of the device, which I think reset the device. There is no mention of this in the manual. Keep in mind, I have only had this thing one day. Value: The Line 6 Back Track with Mic is overpriced. There is nothing special about this device - no screen, no real features. It is very basic and does not feel like a quality product to hold. I think the current price is far too steep. Manufacturer Support: I am not even going to call the company. Instead, I'll take it back to the Guitar Center and say I didn't like it and get a refund. The Wow Factor: Actually this product is very unsexy. It has no heft, and inspires no confidences to look at - it reminds me of a cheap 1960's camera. I find it disappointing in many ways. I am trying to see how this device would be useful but honestly I've spent more time screwing around with it due to aforementioned problems. Overall: It records well enough but all the wav. files can only be managed on a computer and they have default names like: BT00045G.WAV. If you have recorded a bunch of 'events', it gets difficult to know which ones you want to keep just by looking at them on a computer screen, so you have to listen to each event which gets to be very time consuming - this is where a delete button may have been useful on the device itself. That way you could delete the takes you knew to be outright turkeys on the spot instead of buggering around on the computer. If this product were lost or stolen, I'd probably not replace it with another - or I'd wait until such gimmicks were considerably cheaper before buying.
