PR7 Provides Easy to Use Device for Recording Quality Audio

Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. has announced its latest POCKETRAK portable linear PCM recorder, the PR7. Ideal for recording audio, be it during live event sound check, house of worship, or corporate events and speaking engagements, the Yamaha PR7 provides end users with an extremely easy-to-use tool for capturing high-quality audio.

The PR7 features newly developed, large, crossed XY stereo microphones that deliver stunning stereo sound with natural depth and accurate imaging. Supporting up to 24-bit/96kHz, high-resolution audio far exceeding CD-quality sound, the PR7 faithfully captures the atmospheric reverberations and subtle nuances of a live performance. It can also record in various formats allowing for more lengthy recordings. Additionally, the PR7 comes equipped with five optimized recording presets ideal for band rehearsals, individual practice, speaking engagements, and field recording. The PR7 also allows users to manually adjust HPF and dynamics control settings.

Punching in and out at specific parts of an audio file can ensure that only the parts you need are committed to the file. PR7 Marker Editing is a useful indexing function that allows users to insert up to 36 markers in audio files either during recording or playback, providing easy location of a playback position.

The new Yamaha PR7 recorder comes equipped with an external MIC/LINE input accommodating a variety of external input sources such as condenser microphones. It also features high-capacity built-in memory, a microSD/microSDHC card slot for up to 32GB storage, and built-in speaker.

With WaveLab LE included in the package, recorded tracks can be easily edited and mastered using a comprehensive set of Steinberg's professional plug-ins. Users can also post their files to the web using the dedicated podcasting function. With its easy-to-use interface and flexible functionality, the Yamaha PR7 is an ideal tool for a wide range of applications requiring high-quality sound recording.
