Tascam DR 44WL Portable Handheld Recorder With Wifi
ParcelForce, FedEx, Royal Mail
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 WiFi 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.
Two cardioid mic capsules are arranged so that their diaphragms overlap in the same axis. This X-Y configuration provides a true stereo image. The microphone capsules and input circuitry are designed to perform without distortion in environments with high sound pressure levels - such as live concerts and recording close to a sound source.
In addition, a newly-designed shock mount absorbs vibrations effectively - even when mounted on a digital SLR camera.
The XLR/TRS external input jacks can be used to record the outputs of a PA console or external mics while recording with the built-in mics - recording four tracks (two stereo tracks) simultaneously. Set the recorder to capture four mono, one stereo and two mono, or two stereo tracks according to your recording needs. Since this unit can also provide +48V phantom power, users can also connect their favorite condenser mics.
Moreover, this unit supports +4dBu input, which is necessary to interface with professional-level equipment.
TASCAM has once again revolutionized handheld recording! The DR-44WL creates its own Wi-Fi network, and a free dedicated app can be used for remote operation without touching the unit. Not only does the app allow recording to be started and stopped, it can also be used to check and adjust input levels from an iOS or Android device. Everything related to recording can be done by Wi-Fi.
Since the Wi-Fi transmission range is about 20 metres, this feature can be used with the recorder in places that are normally out of reach. In addition, audio can be checked by Wi-Fi after recording. The audio quality can be checked through headphones connected to a smartphone. With operation capabilities and flexibility that exceeds infrared remotes - and reliability that approaches that of wired remotes - this handheld recorder allows freedom of placement that far surpasses that of previous models.
The benefits of Wi-Fi are not limited to recording. Audio files can be transmitted via Wi-Fi to smartphones and computers. Files can also be uploaded to SoundCloud using a dedicated application. SoundCloud is tightly linked with other social networking services. For example, if a recording is shared to Facebook, it will appear on the user's timeline. By uploading a live recording immediately after performance, audience members could listen to the concert again on their way home.
Even though the DR-44WL is a professional recording device, it also has numerous automatic functions that make capturing high-quality recordings easy for anyone. In addition to automatic recording functions, the unit also has functions that simplify file management. Users can create high-quality recordings without complicated operations.
The DR-44WL is also a powerful tool for songwriters. By selecting MTR mode, the user can use the DR-44WL as a multitrack recorder to overdub one track at a time. With functionality that approaches that of a dedicated MTR, it is possible to produce studio-quality music files using just one DR-44WL. In addition, the reverb effect can be used to sweeten recordings.
