TASCAM's MP-BT1 is the first MP3 player designed for musicians. Based on the award-winning CD-BT1mkII, this fun mobile bass trainer includes enough memory to store up to 240 songs. Bass parts can be slowed down, looped and even eliminated to help you to learn new riffs. Play back MP3s using Variable Speed Audition, which slows down the speed without changing the pitch, and sections can be seamlessly looped while practicing tricky passages. Songs can even be pitched up or down to match the tuning of your bass, so you don't have to re- tune for every song.

The bass input lets you to rock along with multi-effects, including a bass canceller so you can play along with your favorite bands. A tuner, metronome, and built-in rechargeable battery are also built- in. All of this is packed into an MP3 player smaller than a stomp box, so stuff it in your backpack, gig bag or back pocket and hit the road.

The MP-BT1 uses a high-speed USB connection to load up MP3s and charge the built-in battery (an optional power supply is also available). Zip through your MP3 collection using a data wheel, dedicated buttons and a graphical LCD display.

4 out of 5 eggsTruth is ...

Pros: small, lite, lots of tweaks... internal rechargeable battery. charge via usb. I can walk around and practice with a small package. Portable. firmware upgradeable.

Cons: You have to be forgiving, works as best as it can to take out bass, or similar adjustments. sound quality is good, not great. there is a learning curve to get the options down. usb wire is short. only one gig of memory and doesnt expand. must purchase power adapter seperate.
took over 2 weeks to deliver.

Other Thoughts: You need good headphones. You can do the same thing and maybe better with many good programs on a pc. You can save much if you shop. but most of all, newegg took over 2 weeks to ship after recieving payment. I found it online for 80% less cost and 3 days shipping with the A store. not my typical newegg experience. Would i buy again ? I guess so...
