Onboard Speaker
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 Nondirectional 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. See pages 16 and 17 for CUBASE AI.
