The Pocketrak 2G builds upon a successful lineage of recording technology from Yamaha and features two tracks of CD quality recording in PCM, MP3 and Windows Media (WMA) formats. It’s perfect for podcasting, field and location recording, audio for video and more.

“The goal of any pocket recorder is to be ready to capture audio wherever and whenever it happens,” said Athan Billias, Director of Marketing, Technology Products, Yamaha Corporation of America. “The Pocketrak 2G’s small size, long battery life, and large built-in memory provide Yamaha quality recording anywhere, anytime, and comes with Cubase AI for a complete music production solution.”

The Pocketrak 2G includes a rechargeable AAA nickel-hydrogen battery capable of providing 19 hours of 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 is the only portable recorder to house an on-board speaker in addition to a headphone jack, making it a handy portable music player that supports MP3 and WMA files with DRM10 support.

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 “Advanced Integration” version of Steinberg’s legendary digital audio workstation software specially built to seamlessly integrate with Yamaha hardware.

The Pocketrak 2G (MSRP: $449) is scheduled to ship in April 2008.
