Amazingly Small and Lightweight
This mini recorder will go with you everywhere for recording band rehearsals, music lessons, conferences, meetings and more. Weighing only 2 ounces (57g) with battery and less than one inch (21mm) thick, it fits easily in a pocket or bag, so you're always ready to record.
Clip It Where You Want It
The supplied attachment clip lets you snap the recorder onto a music stand, mic stand or any convenient location. Small and light, it stays where you put it and won't be in the way.
Long-lasting Battery for Extended Recording
The C24 offers significantly longer recording time than comparable models. A single alkaline AAA battery will power the unit for up to 26 hours in MP3 mode and 16 hours in PCM mode.
24bit/96kHz Recording — Better Quality than CD!
Surprisingly, this small pocket recorder offers digital audio recording with 24bit/96kHz resolution, which is higher than CD quality. Thanks to Yamaha technology, small size is not a sacrifice. Naturally, you can also use the MP3 format for longer recording.
Two Great Practice Aids: Tuner and Metronome
The built-in tuner makes pitch adjustments easy and convenient. When using the tuner, the backlight turns on automatically. The metronome is also handy, giving you the desired tempo via both sound and LED. And you can record the music without recording the metronome sound.
High Capacity Memory with microSD Cards
The C24 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.
No more waiting for the recorder. Press the power button and you're ready to record after just 4.5 seconds.
Even with its slim body, the C24 includes a speaker so you can check your recording on the spot or listen later at your leisure.
High Quality Non-directional Stereo Microphone
With a large mic built into its compact body, the C24 records sound with excellent clarity. The mic is nondirectional, so you can record over a wide area without having to point it at each sound source. This makes it easy to record large groups like brass bands or choirs.
Direct USB Connection
Slide out the USB connector and the C24 connects directly to a USB port. USB 2.0 compatibility means that an hour of recorded sound can be transferred in 10 seconds. Transfer recordings to your computer and email them right after they've been recorded. And because the C24 comes bundled with Cubase AI5 software, you have extensive editing and production capabilities.
Peak Limiter for Optimum Music Recording
Peak limiter prevents overload and distortion on high-level sounds.
Cubase AI 5 Software Greatly Expands Your Recording and Editing Capabilities.
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.
