Great Practice Tool

OK so loved the demo's and description. This does not come with any songs, only jam tracks. I had trouble loading iTunes from my collection. (convert to mp3 or wav) but once I call boss and spoke with tech support, (peter swiadon) they really care, help and stand behind their products, I was off and jamming. This unit is awesome! Practice, take it w/you play along your favorite songs, cancel out guitar, bass or vocals, record, slow down. Family and fiends always asking me to bring and play. Its like having your own band in a small portable box. Enough, sound for a small gig or plug into speakers. Would like to see a travel bag for this, it's made for that.
