Sleek, Powerful Portable Recorder is the Ideal Companion for Industry’s Pace-Setting Keyboard Products

BUENA PARK, Calif.— Now through December 31, 2010, Yamaha is offering a free POCKETRAK C24 portable recorder with the purchase of an AvantGrand hybrid piano or Modus digital piano.

The sleek, high-quality POCKETRAK C24 is the perfect companion to the AvantGrand and Modus lines, since it makes recording lessons, performances, rehearsals and musical ideas a snap. Its top-notch non-directional stereo microphone helps capture the pianos as they sound in a room, so you can hear your performance the way others hear it. One of the smallest and lightest personal recorders on the market, the POCKETRAK C24 weighs just two ounces and makes pristine recordings with 24-bit/96kHz sound quality, letting users touch up the sound and burn CD's with Cubase AI5 recording software, which is bundled with the POCKETRAK C24.

“Several teachers who made recordings of the AvantGrand with the POCKETRAK C24 were amazed,” said Mike Bates of Yamaha's Institutional Solutions Group. “They held the recorder 12 feet away from the piano and captured great recordings. There are many practical applications for the pairing of these great products.”

In addition to home and professional applications, using the POCKETRAK C24 with the AvantGrand and Modus pianos also has a variety of benefits in educational settings, including archiving recordings of private piano lessons and making audio recordings for study or performance preparation, in addition to recording master classes, student presentations and performances. It also makes crystal clear recordings of preparations for piano trio or other chamber performances. When placed on a mic stand in the center of the sound sources, it provides all members of the group with a high-quality rehearsal recording for use in individual practice so that the ensemble can sound its best.

The revolutionary technology of the AvantGrand makes this hybrid piano sound and feel like an acoustic grand piano. The piano's hybrid technology combines a traditional concert grand piano keyboard action with some of the world's most advanced sampling techniques, developed specially for the AvantGrand.
