TASCAM MP3 Music Trainers

tascam mp vt1 TASCAM MP3 Music Trainers

Two more MP3 music trainers for bass and vocals will be joining TASCAM’s previously released guitar trainer. As well as providing the standard functions of an MP3 player with a 128 x 64 pixel monochrome LCD and 1GB of storage, the MP-BT1 and MP-VT1 are equipped with a direct input for a bass guitar or microphone, to integrate your own performance with the music.

Plenty of effects can be used to modify the music, such as altering playback speed without changing pitch, skipping and looping sections, eliminating or enhancing the bass or vocals, and of course tuner and metronome functions. What better way to learn and practice music yourself? Currently the T1-series from TASCAM (a division of TEAC) are only intended for Japan, but with a bit of luck, they may be released internationally.

Touch Screen Enabled TEAC MP-600

Teac MP 600 Touch Screen Enabled TEAC MP 600

It’s no surprise that more companies are making the choice to employ touch screen technology, the most recent of these being TEAC. The MP-600 will provide for the low capacity PMP market, as it is offered in 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB capacities, but can also be expanded through SD/MMC memory cards. Only the very basic file formats are covered: MP3, WMA (DRM), AVI (XVID), and JPEG.

Sharing music and video with others can be done easily through a built-in speaker. The MP-600 supplies a decent collection of equalizer settings, FM radio, recording functions, reading of e-books and text documents, and if you get bored of it all: Tetris. Battery life registers at 10 hours for music, and 5.5 for video playback.
