Has anyone used this product from Line6? I've always had the problem of recording ideas, which doesn't always happen when you're by the computer but in the car or just anyplace where there's no recording possibilities.

Foremost the mic will be useful for acoustinc guitar or humming your idea into the mic (while on the tube) or loud singing in the car laugh.gif
The you can connect your guitar which could be cool for when coming up with something while rehearsing.

Sounds like a great tool to me. Anyone got an opinion or tried it even? smile.gif


It cost 139€
Question is if Zoom H4 will add a lot more options (also got mic and guitar input + a lo more) for 248€

Ooops the H4 didn't function the same way. It won't patch the signal through like the Backtracker does.

That sounds like a cool device, could be very useful. I haven't tried one, but for recording something small that piece of gear seems ideal.

Yeah, and I want things to be simple. I've had many melody ideas and riffs I thought could be useful in a song. And often I say to myself - I will record that as soon as possible; but even though it's not that much a hassle to plug into the POD, start my DAW and plug in the guitar it happens way too seldom.

This equippment I can have plugged in to record my guitar through an entire practice session - it just sits between the guitar and the amp and records everything. If there's a cool riff I could press the memory button and what's recorded just then is saved in a special folder.

To my ears, this sounds too good to be true. So someone please pinch me and tell me it's as good as I think wink.gif

I don't really know, could be a useful thing. I can't see the point in using this kind of device. I have a voice recorded on my cell phone for that kind of stuff and it's pretty adequate.

I don't really had an opportunity to hear about this device in detail...It seems very useful and good value for the money..

There are other handheld recorders that should be able to do similar things....

Check out this article its very useful:
