OVERVIEW

TASCAM's flagship handheld recorder now with Wi-Fi connectivity.

The DR-44WL brings improved audio specs, updated microphones, and WiFi transport control and file transfer to TASCAM's flagship portable audio recorder. The new stereo condenser microphones improve 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, Android, Mac, and Windows devices controls the transport for remote recording start and stop. Audio streams live 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. For video shooters, the recorder includes a hot shoe mount and a stable internal clock to avoid drifting out of sync with your camera. 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.

Comments about Tascam DR-44WL Handheld Linear PCM Recorder:

This is not my first Tascam portable recording product... I use this stuff on a sporadic basis and need to produce quality recordings when I do. The DR-44wl is certainly capable of doing everything they claim... and it does it's job pretty efficiently.... If I were a regular user of the DR-44 I would love it.... The problem is that it is fairly complicated... and since I don't use it every day I tend not to remember how to access some of the "not so apparent" functions. .. To sum up my experience, if you are going to use the DR-44 on a regular basis and you require quality audio from a quality product then I would highly recommend this thing...... If you are going to be a casual user and only play with it once or twice a month as I do, I would recommend finding a recorder that is not quite as feature rich so you don't end up having to read the instructions every time you use it!

best portable Tascam Recorder yet...

Comments about Tascam DR-44WL Handheld Linear PCM Recorder:

Very easy to use with multiple recording formats. I own other TasCam recorders, the 8 track and the DR1 - no doubt you'll love the "44." Killer sound and ease of use. I can also use this with my Nikon Camera for recording video with 4 track sound, overdubbing etc. Fantastic, why did I wait so long?

Comments about Tascam DR-44WL Handheld Linear PCM Recorder:

Uses 4 AA batteries up pretty fast. I also have DP-05. The two units have different USB connections, requiring separate cables.

        Comments about Tascam DR-44WL Handheld Linear PCM Recorder:

        This product and is good at what it does. Recording four channels in Low-fi (24 or 18 bit) and being portable. That is what you are buying if you this product. And if this is what you want you will be happy. Three hundred happy.... The jury is still out on that one. I needed it to help archive my songwriting ideas. It is very helpful for that. If I had bought it to make actual recordings of my songs to later represent me... I wouldn't have been so happy. Also, other than trying them out to see how they worked (or trying to figure out how to do them (keep the owners manual handy) ... I don't find myself using any of the "bells or whistles" that Tascam added to this recorder.... That may change... But I keep asking myself could I have done better with a less expensive unit with less options. I don't regret buying it because I did my research first. I recommend you do the same or you may be disappointed with this purchase.
