Following the success of the Pocketrak 2G Pocket Recorder, Yamaha Corporation of America is now shipping their new Pocketrak CX. While the Pocketrak 2G fills the niche an ultra-slim recorder with an omni-directional mic for recording lectures, meetings and rehearsals, the Pocketrak CX adds an upgraded stereo microphone system and expandability, perfect for recording live music.

Like its predecessor, the Pocketrak CX supports a variety of different recording formats from 16-bit 44.1 CD quality .wav files to convenient MP3, an onboard speaker, stand adapter, and Cubase AI DAW software. The CX then adds a larger AA re-chargeable "eneloop" battery built into its compact body allowing up to 40 hours of continuous recording and play-back, a high sensitivity 90° X-Y microphone for high-quality stereo recording and expandability microSD cards (2GB card included). Add to this a peak limiter and variable speed playback for practicing difficult or fast passages and the Pocketrak CX becomes a powerful tool for any musician.

With an ultra slim body weighing less than 100 grams, the Pocketrak CX continues what the Pocketrak 2G has become known for – truly portable recording. Yamaha now offers two great choices at affordable prices.

The Pocketrak CX is now available for $499 MSRP at authorized Yamaha dealers. For more information, write Yamaha Corporation of America, Pro Audio & Combo Division, Music Production, P.O.
