Pocketrak 2G

Mobile Recording

There are so many compelling reasons to record band rehearsals or music lessons for later review that a portable recorder is an essential item. Recording conferences and meetings has become a matter of course too. Naturally, the smaller and lighter that recorder is, while delivering top-class sound quality, the better. Weighing only 1.7 ounces (49 grams) complete with battery, the Yamaha POCKETRAK 2G Pocket Recorder is an unbeatable choice. It's only a half-inch (13 millimeters) thick and will slip unobtrusively into a shirt pocket. But this diminutive, lightweight package contains a large 2-gigabyte memory plus advanced digital audio technology that lets you record and playback with outstanding quality.

In addition to a CD-quality linear PCM recording mode that lets you record up to 3 hours of music, there are a number of MP3 modes that provide significantly longer recording times. The supplied long-lasting rechargeable battery can keep the POCKETRAK 2G running for up to 9 hours continuously when recording in MP3 mode. Slide out the built-in USB connecter and connect the POCKETRAK directly to your computer to transfer files back and forth, and use the bundled CUBASE AI digital audio workstation software to edit and enhance your recordings with pro-level control.

In addition to superior basic performance, the built-in stereo microphone can be tilted upward when the POCKETRAK 2G is placed on a desk or table to minimize sound degradation due to reflection from the surface as well as pickup of mechanically transmitted noise. This high-performance microphone delivers excellent sound quality and signal-to-noise performance in a variety of recording situations.

LEVEL METERS AND ALC FOR OPTIMUM RECORD LEVELS

For maximum quality when recording music you'll want to set the record level manually. In manual mode the record level can be adjusted in 31 steps, and the POCKETRAK 2G has level meters and a peak indicator that make setting optimum levels quick and easy. For speech you can let the POCKETRAK 2G set the record level for you automatically by simply switching the ALC (Automatic Level Control) function ON. When ALC is ON the POCKETRAK 2G will automatically maintain the best recording level for maximum clarity and intelligibility.

DRM10 PLAYBACK SUPPORT AND COMPREHENSIVE PLAYBACK FUNCTIONS

In addition to being a superb recorder, the POCKETRAK 2G functions as a high-quality digital audio player as well! DRM10-encoded WMA or MP3 files that you have encoded from CDs you own or have purchased from online music sites can be transferred from your computer and played on the POCKETRAK 2G. And like any accomplished audio player the POCKETRAK 2G has a range of playback features that can make listening more flexible and enjoyable.

The POCKETRAK 2G even recognizes standard ID3 MP3 tags.

There's repeat playback of a single song, repeat play back of all songs in a specified folder, and random playback. There are even selectable equalizer settings and a bass enhancement function so you can enjoy any type of music to the fullest. But that's not all! The POCKETRAK 2G even recognizes standard ID3 MP3 tags, and will show the artist name and track title of the current song on its large backlit display.

DIRECT USB 2.0 COMPUTER CONNECTION

DIRECT USB 2.0 COMPUTER CONNECTION

To transfer files to or from your computer and/or charge the battery, slide out the built-in USB connector and connect the POCKETRAK 2G directly to a USB port. The POCKETRAK 2G is USB 2.0 compatible for maximum data transfer speed: an hour of recorded sound can be transferred to your computer in approximately 10 seconds.

You might also want to transfer recordings to your computer for post-production using the supplied CUBASE AI digital audio workstation software, or simply for backup and storage.

LONG-LASTING RECHARGEABLE BATTERY

LONG-LASTING RECHARGEABLE BATTERY

The POCKETRAK 2G comes supplied with an advanced Sanyo "geneloop" rechargeable battery that can power the unit for up to 19 hours of continuous MP3 recording. To recharge the battery simply plug the POCKETRAK 2G directly into a USB port on your computer.
