Small and convenient to use, the Yamaha PockeTrak 2G sounds like a great portable recording alternative for musicians or professionals on the go. Does the hype live up to the price tag?
Several years ago when Yamaha first introduced the PockeTrak series of digital audio recorders I was both impressed and dissapointed.Â The PockeTrak 2G was a very innovative product with lots of great features but at the same time it seemed rather cheaply made.Â Fast forward to 2010 and Yamaha has learned well from their mistakes of models past.Â The new Yamaha PockeTrak C24 is a grown up sibling to the 2G that fixes most of the complaints and adds new features to make it even more appealing to musicians and educators alike while still remaining an ultra-portable hand held digital audio recorder that is easy to use.
The Edirol R-09HR digital audio recorder is a remake of the very popular Edirol R-09 model, with the inclusion of several new bells and whistles including a low power OLED screen, and an included wireless remote control.
The Boss BR-80 Digital Recorder fills a very useful niche in the portable digital audio recorder market. Unlike most of the other recorders on the market that fall into its price range the BR-80 offers true 8 track recording and throws in dozens of background rhythms and special audio effects in as icing on the cake. Users can make use of the two built in microphones or they can plug in their guitar or other unbalanced audio source to record from.
