About the Yamaha PR7

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.

Yamaha PR7 Features

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Adjustable Playback Speed: R7 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
