DR-44WL

4-track pocket recorder with Wi-Fi capabilities


Once again, TASCAM revolutionizes the world of portable recorders! The DR-44WL creates its own Wi-Fi network, and a free application can remotely control it without touching it. As the range of Wi-Fi transmission is at the environment 20 meters, this feature allows to place the recorder in areas that otherwise have out of range. Beyond a simple start / stop recording, you can check and adjust the recording levels from any iOS or Android device. All aspects of the recording are accessible via Wi-Fi.

Plus, it is possible to check via Wi-Fi the audio data after recording. Simply connect a headset to your smartphone. Thanks to the tools, flexibility and range superior to those of an infrared remote control - and a reliability similar to that of the wired remote controls - this portable recorder allows a freedom of placement far superior to that of the previous models.

From firmware version 2.0, it is also possible to connect via an existing router or access point. The advantages are: (1) you can use other web services, such as mail or sharing portals, at the same time with your mobile device, and (2) Wi-Fi reach, so the control area, may be larger, depending on the capabilities of your router. On the other hand, a direct connection is ideal when there is no Wi-Fi available.

Note: Verification of audio data via Wi-Fi is effective after recording.

Choose which type of Wi-Fi connection to use: simple direct connection (no need for a router) or connection via an existing Wi-Fi network (local router or access point)
Remote control via the free DR CONTROL app (available on iOS and Android)
Check audio data with wireless playback



Integrated XY mic pair, for high quality stereo recording:

The two cardioid capsules are mounted in this way that the membranes are coincident in their center. This XY configuration gives an authentic stereo image. Microphone capsules and input circuits are designed to work without distortion in environments with a high level of sound pressure: live concerts, proximity sound ...

In addition, a new suspension absorbs vibrations effectively - even when attached to a digital SLR camera used as a camera.

Static cardioid microphones in XY couples, ensuring impeccable stereophonic recordings.
Designed to accept sound pressure levels up to 132 dB SPL.
Integrated suspension, with physical noise
Dual Level recording function, avoiding clipping



XLR / TRS jack inputs for professional applications:

The combo connectors (XLR / jack) can be used to record the outputs of a PA or external microphones, while maintaining a recording with the built-in microphones - a simultaneous 4-track recording (2 stereo tracks). You can set the recorder to record 4 mono tracks, 1 stereo track and 2 mono tracks, or 2 stereo tracks, depending on your needs. Since the device is equipped with a +48 Volt phantom power supply, you can also use your favorite studio static pickups.

In addition, the level of work is switchable +4 dBu, which allows to work directly with the professional equipment

TRS compatible XLR / jack inputs +4 dBu, 48 Volt phantom power supply.
Low background noise, thanks to the use of a programmable gain amplifier (PGA)
Easy 4-track recording via external microphone inputs or other devices


MTR mode, for more serious music production:

The DR-44WL is also a powerful work tool for composers. Selecting the MTR mode turns the DR-44WL into a multitrack recorder, with the ability to add ("overdub") one track at a time. With this feature, approaching that of a dedicated multitrack tape recorder, the user can produce studio-quality music files with a simple DR-44WL. An integrated reverb effect makes it easy to dress up the recordings.

MTR mode provides access to music production as if using a dedicated multitrack recorder.
Reverb gives the voices and instruments a very pleasant feeling of acoustic space



The benefits of Wi-Fi are not limited to recording. Audio files can be transferred via Wi-Fi on smartphones, tablets, computers ... Or sent on SoundCloud, using a dedicated application. SoundCloud is closely related to other social networking services. For example, if a record is shared on FaceBook, it will appear on the user's timeline. By uploading a live recording immediately after the concert, the audience can hear it again on their way home.

Note: An internet connection is required to upload files to the Internet from a smartphone.

Dual Format function, allowing simultaneous recording in WAV and MP3 format.
Share audio files from SoundCloud to other social networking services
Transfer your files wirelessly to your computer


Numerous automatic functions to simplify use
Although the DR-44WL is a professional recorder, it has many automatic functions that make it easy to record and record quality for everyone. In addition to the automatic recording capabilities, the unit has features that simplify file management. It is easy to create high quality recordings without complicated operations.

Automatic level optimization functions (peak reduction and limiter)
Automatic incrementation of tracks (creation of new files) configurable according to the application
Automatic recording function, launching the recording as soon as a defined level threshold is crossed
Automatic marker placement function
Automatic division function, dividing the files into predefined markers (V1.10)
