Boss Unveils eBand Play Along Audio Player To Help Guitar Practice
The Ultimate Play Along Companion for Guitar Players - helps 'bedroom' guitar players and band members practise the guitar at home. Guitarists can play along to their own music or create new songs while playing along.
By: Roland UK
Boss eBand is the guitar play along audio player that combines playback of full songs, backing tracks, or rhythm loops with high quality Boss guitar effects and a built-in stereo speaker system. This all-in-one solution is ideal for guitarists who want to learn songs, solos and riffs, practise new songs outside of band practice, play along with any of their own collection of music, or create new songs while playing along with audio tracks.
Loading music onto the Boss eBand couldn’t be easier, with direct playback from any standard USB memory stick or SDHC memory card up to 32GB. The Boss eBand also has the ability to import songs from any audio CD using the included utility software.
Unlike traditional audio players, eBand lets guitarists play along and interact with their music by changing the pitch and tempo independently, or using the advanced centre-cancel function to remove guitar or vocal parts. The Boss eBand comes with 300 backing tracks and rhythm loops and also include pre-programmed guitar effects.
The Boss eBand is loaded with powerful COSM® pre-amp technology, authentic Boss-quality guitar effects derived from the Boss GT-10, and over 100 preset guitar sounds from every musical genre. To help navigate the possibilities, eBand includes the EZ TONE function, providing an intuitive, easy-to-use approach to sound creation based on graphic icons. In addition, tuner and metronome functions are built in, keeping guitarists playing along on time and in key.
Not only can guitarists play along with the Boss eBand, they can record their music ideas as well using the included USB audio interface. Pressing the record button during a guitar play along session will create and save a new audio file with the entire performance.
The Boss eBand JS-8 will be available in December 2009, RRP £339. http://www.roland.co.uk/
