Large Stereo Mic and Ultra-handy Wireless Remote Control
Compact and lightweight, the W24 features a large dual microphone assembly for outstanding 24bit/96kHz digital sound quality. What's more, recording is more convenient than ever thanks to the supplied wireless remote control. It's the perfect choice for effortless recording in the studio, on the stage or out in the field.
The wireless remote control makes recording practice sessions much more convenient. You can position the W24 at the optimum recording location and operate it from your playing position, so you can record and listen over and over without having to move.
The W24 far outdistances the competition with up to 38 hours of PCM recording and 56 hours of MP3 recording from a single alkaline AA battery. Now you can concentrate on the music, not the battery.
The W24 has a built-in 2GB flash memory, providing 3 hours of PCM recording time (MP3: 13.5 hours). Using the optional 2GB microSD memory card doubles this amount. You can also use higher capacity cards.
The microphone on a pocket recorder is extremely important in determining sound quality, and the sensitivity and coverage of this X-Y dual mic assembly are truly superior. It takes full advantage of the recorder's 24bit/96kHz resolution.
When bands or orchestras hit high volume peaks, recording quality can suffer. The W24's peak limiter instantly detects these high levels to prevent overload and distortion. Yamaha worked with musicians in studios to ensure that the limiter function is optimized for music recording.
You can use the Scene function to memorize the settings for a variety of recording situations, such as choir practice or interviews, and assign names to them. Then each time you want to use a certain setting, you can recall it instantly.
When the group is ready to start, no one wants to wait for the recorder. With the W24, recording can begin just 4.5 seconds after pressing the power button.
Cut out what you don't want, adjust the sound the way you want it. Using Cubase AI 5 software, it's easy to edit POCKETRAK recordings on your PC or Mac.
Both the W24 and C24 let you easily upload recordings to your PC via USB, for comprehensive editing with Cubase software. Previous editing with Cubase can also be retained, allowing you to refine the process as many times as necessary.
