In a an already very busy market Line 6 have took the plunge into portable recording devices. So lets take a look at what features this has to offer.
“BackTrack™ provides total inspiration control anywhere you play music or feel inspired, including at home, in the studio, at soundcheck and at rehearsal.”
At home, BackTrack offers the best ways to capture and organize all your musical ideas.

In the studio, BackTrack gives you a head-start turning your inspirations into complete songs.

* The clean and pristine audio offers total plug-in processing flexibility
* Packed with your ideas, BackTrack is your portable idea vault
At soundcheck, BackTrack redefines the entire experience.
* Adjust your tone hands-free while BackTrack loops a song or riff
* Walk around the venue and check your tone while BackTrack does the playing for you
* Capture the energy of your live show and drag the high-quality audio to your DAW
At rehearsal, there’s no end to what BackTrack can do for you and your band.
* BackTrack + Mic records your whole band with stunning clarity
* Capture a direct signal perfect for dragging to your DAW by putting BackTrack in-line between your guitar and your amp
* Capture your guitar tone by putting BackTrack in-line after your amp or effects
I would personally would love to see this device fitted in the future with an onboard modelling chip like that of the pocket POD, Im almost suprised its notalready featured here. But you still get a lot of amazing features for your buck.
