Yamaha Pocketrak 'the perfect size'
The Yamaha Pocketrak CX recorder is the perfect size for musicians, according to one celebrated music photographer.
"Size - it is ideal," he remarked. "Small enough for a shirt pocket; big enough with a fuzzy on the top to look like an ENG microphone."
Other characteristics picked out by Mr Cumpsty are the simple navigation menus, "excellent" battery life and "stunning" audio quality.
He also said that the Pocketrack CX has good timing and can be easily mounted on to boom arms and tripods.
A review of the device by CNet stated that it is an excellent choice for bands or solo musicians looking for a "no-nonsense recorder".Posted on 19 May 2009 08:19 to category : Tips and advice

However, it is not just the instruments themselves that can determine how a recording turns out, as the engineering and production can potentially make or break a track.
