Description

Details

The Tascam DR-44WL Portable Digital Recorder with Wi-Fi features two high-quality stereo condenser microphones arranged in an XY pattern, which allow audio recordings to be captured anywhere with astonishing clarity. Tascam have once again revolutionised the handheld recorder with the inclusion of Wi-Fi, infusing the DR-44WL with features that other devices can only dream of!

As you would expect from a company with such an outstanding reputation for building rugged, roadworthy equipment, the pair of studio-quality condenser microphones are built to withstand 132dB SPL - as loud as a jet airplane - without distorting. Further stability and protection is afforded to the capsules thanks to a new shockmounting system for lower handling noise and rumble. Suspended in a rubber mount, the capsules avoid introducing low frequency noises when handles, mounted on a camera, or used on a tripod.

The internal mic preamp, programmable gain amplifier, and A/D converter work independently to ensure a low noise performance runs at an optimal level, no matter how intensely you put the recorder through its paces. The premium-quality CIRRUS LOGIC CS42L52 codec is utilised in the DR-44WL, with the responsibility of overseeing the AD - DA conversion performance of both built-in mics, and external inputs to guarantee fantastic audio performance and low power us for improved battery life.

XLR Combo Jacks for Professional Performance

Two XLR/TRS combo input jacks enable external devices to be connected such as microphones or line level sources, both balanced and unbalanced at either +4 or -10 levels using the locking XLR connector or the 1/4" jack. For condenser mics 48V phantom power is available.

By employing the XLR inputs alongside the internal mics, the DR-44WL can record both the sets out inputs in four-track recording mode. For example, an ambient recording could be made whilst taking a feed from a PA or mixing desk.

Going Wireless

The DR-44WL is able to sync effortlessly with your iOS or Android phone using a free app called DR Control, which enables remote control operation without having to tough the unit itself - perfect if you're a drummer who wants to distance mic their kit and making adjustments, without having to constantly get up and walk to the unit each time. Wi-Fi transmission range is up to 65 feet (20), giving you incredible freedom to move away from the unit without losing control.

You can also connect with smartphones and other Wi-Fi devices directly, negating the need for a Wi-Fi router network or other external devices. Simply input the information shown in the DR Control app, and you're good to go. Should you lose Wi-Fi connection recording will still continue, ensuring you won't lose any precious information. Artists can upload recordings to SoundCloud via the app, and then share with via social networks with friends.

With a reputation for building fantastic audio recording equipment, you can rest assured that the Tascam DR-44WL portable digital recorder with Wi-Fi is the perfect on-location recording device. Boasting up to 16 hours battery operation time, and up to 128GB available storage space, you have no excuse not to get out there and get recording.
