VIAMONDE81's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" GREAT SUPPORT FOR CHOIR"

Yamaha Pocketrak CX
Utisa daily for over a year, easy to use but hard for battery charging, requires a PC? The models I had were the type to Paravant tape, nothing to do with the Pockettrak.
If I repeat it again this type although a little expensive.

<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>- How long have you use it?</span>
for about 1 month. I use it mainly to record rptitions of my group (drums, vibraphone bass, trumpet and keyboards), or even me, and indoor concerts (I have yet to test ext Interior, but it will be ending for that).

<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>- What is the particular feature you like best and least?</span>
- I love its small size which, with the little cover provided, to slip easily into his pocket. Autonomy also looks exceptional, since, for a month I use (about 2-3 hours per week) the battery indicator is always the maximum! S'avrent good records, even in mp3, and the image is very well made stro! Actually I have yet to test the function of stro enlargement, not having yet had the useful but it can add value to Stereo recordings.
The recorder does DTECT immediately under windows and linux (ubuntu), and transfer by dragging and OPDs works perfectly.

- Ngatifs points are harder to find. Can be a little breath of registration, and a little too low by default, but you can rgler latter recording. I have yet to test the software supplied Cubase AI4, it only works on Windows, and its tedious installation s'avrant (most of all recording ...).

<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?</span>
No, it's the very first time that this kind of product j'chte. I read many opinions, and I tried the Zoom H4 dj, but the small size of the Yamaha POCKETRAK CX, announces its independence and the many accessories finally tipped me to the MODEL.

<p class="bbcode-cite"> Quote: <span>- How do you report qualitprix?</span>
300 may be a bit much for what it is, but the mini-SD 2GB Card and battery eneloop books, and the relative newness of this range of products on the market (and thus concurence still a limit) can be explained cel.
Nevertheless, the quality is the (records are good, the product is beautiful and DGIG a feeling of solidity and, for that price, it al A model quite satisfactory, moreover Esth cally more beautiful than most of its competitors.

I use it for 3 months.
It is a very lightweight portable recorder.
Caution, do not compare to ZOOM H4N (much more complete but also complicated and heavier) or to SONY, 2.5 times more expensive.
The watchword here is simplicity of use.
It puts you ahead and register.
The absence of 24-bit is unfortunate but basically I do not care because the sound that comes out is good.

Here is a link to a piece of acoustic guitar that I recorded with the POCKETRAK cx:

jpa's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Yamaha Pocketrak CX
Excellent product, I use it for a month. At the current price (185 Euros) is really a case.
Extreme compactness and simplicity, all original accessories are supplied (micro SD card, USB cable, headphones, windshield)
Advantages over competing products:
- Size can carry it around in his pocket
- Breakfast included HP (even if not the stereo, it allows you to quickly check what was recorded and even play along)
- Price
Very good sound quality, only drawback: quite sensitive to the environment (avoiding the move when recording).
Ideal for capturing an idea when we made whether to use acoustic instruments or a guitar amp.
These low enough.
It can be set up on a small camera (e g. Gorillapod) to take both voice and a guitar for example.
