Yamaha Ships W24 and C24 Portable Recorders
Buena Park, CA - Se 23, 2010 - Yamaha is now shipping two new portable recorders, the Pocketrak C24 and Pocketrak W24.
The C24 includes an omnidirectional microphone, and records at up to 24 bit/96kHz. It includes a mounting adaptor and can be attached to a mic or music stand. It plugs directly into a USB port without needing an extra cable.
The W24 comes with a wireless remote controller and a Scene Memory function, which automatically recalls the settings for a particular recording session or location. Both record up to 68 hours in 64kb/s MP3 mode.
Both models include a metronome, an instrument tuner, 2GB of internal memory (with the ability to expand the memory with mini SD memory cards), a peak limiter and a high-pass filter. The Speed Change function speeds up or slows down MP3 playback without changing pitch.
From their inception, Pocketrak recorders have featured a Voice Activated System, which starts the recording process as soon as the audio level reaches a certain point and stops when the audio level drops below the threshold. Both models also include a Set Timer function, which specifies the duration between the time the record button is pressed and the moment recording begins, so users can get ready to perform.
The recorders include a copy of Cubase AI5, a streamlined sibling of Steinberg's Cubase 5 Advanced Music Production System.
