br /> James Cumpsty, who has taken pictures of the likes of Eddie Van Halen, Kurt Cobain, Jeff Beck and Mark Knopfler during his career, told the official Yamaha website the six things he loves the most about the device, placing its size in the number one spot.

"Size - it is ideal," he remarked. "Small enough for a shirt pocket; big enough with a fuzzy on the top to look like an ENG microphone."

Other characteristics picked out by Mr Cumpsty are the simple navigation menus, "excellent" battery life and "stunning" audio quality.

He also said that the Pocketrack CX has good timing and can be easily mounted on to boom arms and tripods.

A review of the device by CNet stated that it is an excellent choice for bands or solo musicians looking for a "no-nonsense recorder".
