Load a tune, slow it down, add a track.

TASCAM is reinventing music education once again with the LR-10 Instrument & Vocal Trainer/Recorder. Like their CD and MP3 trainers and recorders, the LR-10 can slow down and loop MP3 files without changing their pitch to help musicians learn new songs and licks.

The SD card slot includes a 2GB card, and the new tabletop design makes them the perfect tools for music students, hobbyists or professionals to perfect their instruments.
TASCAM's LR-10 is designed for strings, wind players, keyboardists, vocalists or any other musician. Use it to loop and transcribe your favorite music, record lessons or capture new song ideas. The LR-10 has a built-in microphone and speaker for recording and playback. A chromatic tuner is also included, as well as a metronome for precision playing.
The TASCAM LR-10 is the ideal practice tool for any musicians of any skill level.

I have an Akai phrase trainer that I've used for a few years. It has some very useful features, but the recording time is limited. It has no internal storeage and loses everything when it loses power. It has a loop feature, but once it's set you can't change the in and out points. It has a few features the Tascam doesn't have, and doesn't have all that the Tascam does. For example, it has a note capture feature that captures a single note. The Tascam doesn't have that one feature. I found the Tascam manual a little confusing about looping. There are a few typos and I had to experiment to find the correct procedures. Most of the features I may never use. I'm mainly concerned with looping and the huge amount of storeage space. Also the convenience of being able to upload from my computer. I can keep all of the songs I have to rehearse often in one convenient place. The speaker is not totally useless, I used it when I was learning some of the features. The display can be dificult to read under some lighting conditions. But, overall, I'd say I got my money's worth. I bought it on black Friday for under 40.

    Lots of flexibility here! Metronome, tuner, built in speaker (use headphones for serious work), CD quality recording. Plays most kinds of files. Easy computer use. Overdub a set of lyrics over a worked out set of chords or melody. Extraordinarily useful.

      Comments about TASCAM LR-10 Instrument & Vocal Trainer/Recorder:

      Talk about "Bang For The Buck" , what a blast to use. Just starting playing with it, but so far the instructions have guided me through. Lots of different ways to record, input, play back, arrange, and modify the music. The tuner and metronome are handy , too. Has run for hours on batteries, although an AC power supply is available. Sounds GOOD through headphones or speakers. Just like a mini recording studio that can be carried in your pocket. The practice features for loop, pitch and tempo are nice. Overall, for what I paid, very happy and satisfied. Looking forward to exploring all its possibilities. So far using it with guitars, vocals,Youtube and MP3. GREAT !

      Comments about TASCAM LR-10 Instrument & Vocal Trainer/Recorder:

      Great small inexpensive unit. The manual is a bit confusing but after working with it a few times you learn how to use it. My only gripe is on my unit the internal speaker is very weak making it difficult to hear if the ambient noise is loud. A larger backlit display would be nice but probably would add to the cost. Also the supplied batteries were doa so make sure you have a fresh set handy.

          I brought this to help me with my multi-instrument practice. Works great and the simple overdubs are helpful. I think the sound quality is great for a tiny box. I plan to use it to make rote recordings of new pieces for my non-reading friends. Back light display and a USB rechargeable battery would be welcome features.

            I purchased this from MF on a stupid deal of the day for under 40.00. Got it today, loaded a few songs via the line in input. It took a few minuets to figure it out. The key to keeping it from distorting, is lowering your input level to around 7, or until the peak light doesn't light up. I then when out of the Tascam out jack into a speaker system and worked like magic. I does everything I expected it too and them some. For the money I spent, the purchase I made was a very good one for me.

                  If this had back lighting and auto ready which would automatically pause at the begining of the next track, it would be ideal for live performance. Nice product for the price though.

                    I have been working with this for over two hours now and I have not gotten it to work yet. I have some folders and songs on the S D card but it is very confusing to use. I have accomplished nothing. It says USB connected and that all I get when it is plugged in. Tascam should have some instructional videos on a web site to watch so they could walk you through it. I am not sure if this is a good product yet.

                        I LOVE THIS THING!!! I had the cd version of the LR-10 and I liked it, but I LOVE this .mp3 version. Super easy to use. yeah, when you slow the songs down a lot they distort some, but I haven't had to slow them down that much when learning a song. But it does exactly what I purchased it for. I wish the LCD screen was backlit but...oh well. You can adjust the contrast but having it backlit would have been the bomb. It comes with a USB cable so you can use it with your computer to conserve the battry life. I also bought the PS-P520 power adapter so Icould have complete flexibility with my power sources. This is def worth the money!

                        I bought it to play around with. To record singing in church choir on Saturday night so I could try playing guitar at home with the thought of playing the guitar on services where the organist can't show up and we usually sing au cappella. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks good! We'll see how it works out for me

                          I already have a Tascam DR-40, which I like very much, but this deal was too good to pass up. While the recording quality is not as good as the DR-40, this thing is much simpler to use... just hit the record button and play. It was designed as an instrumental trainer, not a professional recorder, and for it's intended purpose it works really well.

                          I've had it for about a week now, and have played with all of the features...overdubbing, tempo, key shift, etc. It seems that there are less digital artifacts with this unit than with older equipment I have used previously. The only thing I would add would be a center channel cancel like on the older Tascam vocal trainer (the one that takes CDs)

                          I will be using this in rehearsals of our church worship band and I believe that it will be a very useful addition to our equipment.

                            I AM NOT HAPPY AT ALL
                            THE VOLUME IS VERY LOW, WHEN YOU RECORD YOUR INSTRUMENT YOU CAN'T HEAR YOUR RECORDING , AN AM RADIO SOUNDS BETTER THAN THIS .
                            SAVE YOUR MONEY , FIND A BETTER ONE.
