Yamaha Premiers Pocketrak 2G – Portable Stereo Digital Recorder
Not one to be left out of the blossoming portable digital recorder market, Yamaha has premiered the Pocketrak 2G, a compact recorder featuring 2GB of built-in memory, easy USB file transfer, and Steinberg Cubase AI DAW software. The Pocketrak 2G features 2 tracks of CD quality recording in PCM, MP3 and Windows Media (WMA) formats.
The Pocketrak 2G includes a rechargeable AAA nickel-hydrogen battery capable of providing 19 hours of claimed MP3 recording to its 2GB of internal memory. Plugging its sliding USB connector into a powered USB bus simultaneously recharges the battery and transfers files to a PC or Mac. The Pocketrak 2G also sports an on-board speaker in addition to a headphone jack.
Included in the box is the Pocketrak 2G, a USB extension cable, stereo earphones, a leather carrying case and stand adapter, as well as Cubase AI, an â€œAdvanced Integrationâ€ version of Steinbergâ€™s digital audio workstation software specially built to seamlessly integrate with Yamaha hardware.
Yamaha’s Pocketrak 2G will be available in April 2008 for $449. More information on the Yamaha Pocketrak 2G.
