Product Overview Groundbreaking Four-Track Recorder with Stereo Mics, XLR Mic Inputs and Wi-Fi

TASCAM's DR-44WL is the latest recording innovation from TASCAM. It starts with high-quality stereo condenser microphones, updated with a new XY pattern and high-performance mic components. Two locking XLR inputs feed TASCAM's latest microphone preamp design, with the lowest noise level and richest sound available in a portable recorder.

The DR-44WL revolutionizes handheld recorders with its new Wi-Fi feature. A free app for iOS or Android devices provides control, file transfer, and audio streaming to your smartphone. Start recording while on-stage or from anywhere in the room, while setting trim levels and check meters to make sure the transport is running. At the end of a performance, transfer recordings to your phone and instantly upload them to SoundCloud, Facebook, even email directly to fans.

With rugged construction, great sound quality, and TASCAM's famed ease of use, the DR-44WL is the ultimate portable recorder for anyone from beginning musicians to experienced professionals.


High-Quality Condenser Microphones

A pair of studio-quality condenser microphones top the DR-44WL, arranged in a true XY pattern for detailed imaging and phase coherence. The mic capsules are build to withstand up to 132dB SPL – as loud as a jet airplane – without distorting. Record concerts and rehearsals with the confidence that your recording won't be distorted.

In addition to the great-sounding new capsules, a new shockmounting system has been developed for lower handling noise and rumble. The capsules are suspended in a rubber mount that avoids low frequency noises when handheld, mounted on a camera, or used on a tripod.


XLR Combo Jacks For Use With Professional Gear

The XLR/TRS external input jacks accept either microphone or line level sources. Balanced or unbalanced signals can be plugged in, at either +4 or -10 levels, using the locking XLR connector or the 1/4" jack. The DR-44WL supplies 48V Phantom Power for condenser or ribbon microphones that require it. Both the internal mics and external inputs are used during 4-channel recording, perfect for live recording.


Remote Wi-Fi Control

TASCAM has revolutionized handheld recording with the new Wi-Fi control and transfer features. The DR-44WL creates its own Wi-Fi network with your iOS or Android phone, and a free app called DR Control controls remote operation without touching the unit. The app allows recording to be started and stopped, and can be used to check and adjust input levels. Any of the recording controls on the DR-44WL can be controlled over Wi-Fi.

Wi-Fi transmission range is about 65 feet (20m) – well beyond the reach of infrared remotes – so the recorder can be placed wherever the recording sounds best. Audio from the DR-44WL can also be streamed over Wi-Fi to check the recording. Plug headphones into your smartphone and listen to a near-realtime feed from the recorder.


Instantly Transfer Recordings to Your Smartphone or PC to Share Online

In addition to remote control, the DR-44WL allows you to wirelessly transfer recordings to your smartphone or laptop. Upload recordings to SoundCloud through the app, then publish that link to Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. Or simply email the file to friends.

* An Internet connection is necessary to upload files to the Internet from a smartphone.


Automatic Features Streamline Recording Setup

Even as a professional recording device, the DR-44WL has numerous automatic functions that can make recording easier for anyone. Numerous automatic recording functions combine with functions that simplify file management.

Multitrack Mode For Serious Demo Production

The DR-44WL is a powerful tool for songwriters. In Multitrack mode (MTR), the DR-44WL is able to overdub one track at a time. With multitrack functionality, you can produce studio-quality music files using just the portable DR-44WL. A reverb effect is also included to sweeten your mix.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellet recorder, would recomend. The remote record function is a wonderful edition allowing the recorder to be placed well in advance of it's actual use and once powered by it's USB socket can effectively run endlessly, by moving the recorded track via WiFi. The 4 channel sound quality is incredible for a sub £200 device. Easy to use, excellent build quality as you'd expect from Tascam, +48v available on the external inputs allows quality condenser mics to be recorded as well at the more than adequate stereo pair attached. An excellent all round recorder! 11 October 2015
