The Yamaha PR7 Pocket Recorder is a portable linear PCM recorder that is capable of recording and playing back in PCM quality up to 24-bit/96kHz as well as MP3 quality. It can be used for outdoor recordings, speeches, individual musicians, and bands. The PR7 can record to its internal 2GB memory and also accepts micro SD and micro SDHC cards up to 32GB via its micro SD slot.

Designed to be a tool for musicians as well as a utility recorder, the PR7 has a built-in tuner and metronome and features adjustable playback speed, allowing you to learn difficult passages at a slower speed without changing the pitch. The pre-recording function keeps a consistent three-second memory buffer, so you actually start recording three seconds before you press record. The PR7 is powered by a single AAA battery. A download access code for audio editing software is included.

Crossed XY
The PR7's onboard XY stereo mics are aligned with the left and right mics on the same axis. Using this configuration, both mics are always equidistant from a sound source, providing localization with no phase shifting. Additionally, the microphone covers enhance the performance of the diaphragm resulting in stereo recordings with natural depth and precise stereo imaging
Mic/Line Input
External mic and line inputs can accommodate a variety of external input sources such as condenser microphones or keyboards
Record Presets
The PR7 features five recording presets with optimized HPF and dynamics control settings tailored to the varying requirements of different recording environments. The OFF setting is ideal for capturing musical performances, NEAR is suitable for personal instrument practice, BAND is best suited for multi-instrumental performances, FIELD is best for outdoor recordings and SPEECH is for meetings, seminars or other speaking engagements
HPF and Dynamics Control
PR7's HPF settings allow you to minimize the popping noise caused by wind pressure from vocals or outdoor recordings, while dynamics control lets you adjust input levels to avoid distortion
Easy Overdubbing
The PR7 comes equipped with a dedicated overdubbing button that allows you to instantly add solo sections, harmonies, or narration to an existing file. You can even punch in and punch out at specific parts of an audio file to ensure that only the parts you need, such as a chorus or a solo, are committed to the file
Marker Editing During Recording and Playback
Marker editing is a function that allows you to insert up to 36 markers in audio files either during recording or playback, providing easy location of a playback position. Markers can also be used to loop a specific section of a file to aid users in practicing or learning a specific phrase or part of the song
Adjustable Playback Speed
PR7 allows you to adjust playback speed from 50% up to 200% while maintaining consistent pitch throughout. Slower playback can help musicians master more challenging phrases while faster playback allows users to quickly scan through lengthy recordings
Tripod Mountable
The PR7 can be mounted easily on a standardized tripod to enable more versatility with mic placement options. Mounting on a mic stand is also possible using a simple adapter
Built-In Speaker
An onboard speaker allows you to instantly listen to your recording immediately after you've captured it
