2014-09-15 - TASCAM Releases DR-44WL Portable Recorder with WiFi

Innovative Recorder Includes WiFi Control, Transfer, and Streaming

TASCAM has revolutionized portable recording with the DR-44WL, a 4-track recorder that includes WiFi for transport control, file transfer, and audio streaming to your smartphone or PC. New built-in stereo condenser microphones feature shockmounting and are mounted in a true XY pattern for perfect stereo imaging. A pair of XLR inputs is also available for 4-track recording, and all four feed an improved microphone preamp and AD/DA stage.

The DR-44WL includes WiFi for control and file transfer to your smartphone. A free app for iOS and Android devices controls the transport for remote recording start and stop. Audio streams to your device, and files can be transferred over wireless connection. Instantly share recordings online without moving the DR-44WL from the perfect microphone position.

Also available on the DR-44WL is a 4-track multitrack mode, allowing arrangements to be recorded one track at a time with reverb. No matter what your application is, the DR-44WL brings the best audio quality and WiFi capabilities together in a powerful & easy-to-use handheld recorder.
