The Pocketrak CX from Yamaha delivers full-sized recording features in a pocket-sized design. Built for portability and convenience, the Pocketrak CX can record or play back audio for up to 50 hours on the included Eneloop AA battery. The built-in X-Y microphone has an extremely wide pickup pattern to create a terrific stereo image without the level and phase problems that affect many stereo mics. A mic/line input allows you to connect and record your own mic or other audio source. You can choose to record to Linear PCM or MP3 file formats, and your audio is captured to readily available microSD flash memory cards.

When it comes time to play back your audio, there are multiple options. You can listen via the built-in speaker, the standard 3.5mm headphone jack, or use the USB connector to transfer your audio to a computer for playback and editing. Cubase AI4 editing software is included for your computer, and the recorder itself can apply basic edits to your audio from within the unit. The USB connection can also be used to transfer files to the recorder itself, allowing you to use it as a handy music player.
