Tascam has announced two new handheld recorders with a new Wi-Fi function:
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.
DR Control App
TASCAM DR Control is a free app for your iOS or Android smartphone that controls the DR-44WL or DR-22WL through WiFi. Control the transport, transfer files to your smartphone, upload recordings to SoundCloud, and stream audio from the recorder from anywhere in the room with this app.
DR Control allows you to operate the recorder from anywhere in the room, placing the microphones where they sound best while you start recording away from the action. You can start and stop recording or playback, verifying that the meters and time counter are moving. The app also allows you to adjust the input gain, change the stereo mix, enable low rolloff filter or limiter, and virtually any other control on the recorder.
When recording has stopped, transfer your audio from the DR-44WL or DR-22WL to your phone without plugging in any wires. Both recorders can record WAV and MP3 audio at the same time, so you can upload the MP3 file while retaining a high-quality WAV recording. DR Control will upload your audio to SoundCloud, a free service that makes it simple to share music online. Simply copy the SoundCloud link and post on Facebook, Twitter, or other social networks.
