About This Listing

The Tascam DR-22WL is the first portable recorder to include WiFi for transport control, file transfer and audio streaming to your smartphone or PC. Other innovations like the new Scene Dial make it easier than ever to capture great-sounding recordings and share them online. A set of stereo condenser microphones is arranged in true XY pattern for ideal stereo imaging. The eight-position Scene Dial selects recording settings for typical situations or can be set to full manual for greater control. It is a WiFi function for controlling its transport and transferring files to a smartphone or computer. A free app for iOS and Android controls the transport and transfers files for instant upload. High-Quality Condenser Microphones A pair of studio-quality condenser microphones top the DR-22WL, arranged in a true XY pattern for detailed imaging and phase coherence. The mic capsules are build to withstand up to 120dB SPL without distorting. Record concerts and rehearsals with the confidence that your recording won't be ruined with clipping. Cardioid Condenser Mics in an X-Y Pattern Cardioid condenser capsules are mounted in acoustically-tuned housings. As with all TASCAM recorders, the mic capsules were selected after extensive listening tests. The true x-Y pattern captures the stereo field in phase-alignment, for perfect imaging during playback. Designed To Handle High Sound Pressure Levels - Up to 120dB SPL The design of the DR-22WL allows it to record loud sound sources, including rehearsals and concerts, without distortion. Up to 120 dB SPL means that a volume level 20 times higher than the 105dB SPL maximum sound pressure of a movie theater can be captured without clipping. The high level capability also makes the DR-22WL ideal for sound effects gathering. Superior Microphone Preamp and A/D Converter for Quiet Operation A programmable gain amplifier (PGA) is used to adjust the level of the audio inputs. In many devices, the audio codec level is adjusted to control levels. In the DR-22WL, the mic gain circuit is independent from the A/D converter for low noise performance as well as programmable gain (manual, automatic or controlled over WiFi). A Cirrus Logic CS42L52 is used in the DR-22WL, a premium-quality audio codec. The A/D - D/A chip features both great audio performance and low power use for longer battery life. The built-in mics and the external inputs both pass through this low-noise audio input circuit. Innovative Scene Dial and Large LCD for Easy Operation The DR-22WL is equipped with an 8-position Scene Dial, a simple system to optimize the recorder for common recording scenarios. Similar to a digital camera, the rotating dial has presets for recording instruments, voiceover and other common subjects. An EZ mode sets levels automatically and the manual mode allows you to dial in your own settings. Together with the large LCD display, the DR-22WL couldn't be simpler to use. Scene Dial Optimizes the Recorder for Common Subjects Similar to the mode dial on a camera, the scene dial makes it easy to preset the recorder to fit your subject. A full manual mode is also available for userswho want to set the recorder up themselves. Interface Features Large 128x128 LCD and 4 Function Keys The 128x128LCD, larger than previous TASCAM recorders, shows meters, settings and other information. Icons at the bottom visually display how the four function keys can be used. This interface reduces the need to dig through menus to find commonly-used recording functions. Dedicated Input level Control The most crucial setting on any recorder is the input gain - finding the balance between too low (noise) and too high (clipping). The DR-22WL has a large input level knob right under your fingertips. You don't need to press and hold a button or search through a menu to change the input level. Remote Wi-Fi Control It has revolutionized handheld recording with the new WiFi control and transfer features. The DR-22WL creates its own Wi-Fi network with your iOS or Android phone and a free app called 'DR Control' allows for remote operation without touching the unit. Any of the recording controls on the DR-22WL can be controlled over Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi transmission range is about 65 feet (20m) - well beyond the reach of infrared remotes - so the recorder can be placed wherever the recording sounds best. Audio from the DR-22WL can also be streamed over Wi-Fi to check the recording. Plug headphones into your smartphone and listen to a near-realtime feed from the recorder. Simple Wi-Fi Connections Without a Router The DR-22WL connects with smartphones and other Wi-Fi devices directly. There is no need for a Wi-Fi router network or other external equipment. Wi-Fi connections can be established simply by inputting the information shown in the app. Connection status can be checked with an LED on the unit as well as the app screen. Even if the WiFi connection is interrupted, recording will not stop. Remote Control Using the Free DR Control App (iOS/Android) The free DR Control app allows your iOS or Android phone to control the recorder from anywhere in the room. Start recording on-stage or from the back of the room, while placing the DR-22WL wherever the microphones sound best. Remote start also eliminates handling noise from pressing a button or moving the recorder. In addition to recording, playback and other transport controls, DR Control can adjust the input levels, switch on the low-cut filter, change the mix and more. A power-conservation mode is included to minimize battery consumption from Wi-Fi use. Wireless Streaming to Monitor the Recorder With DR Control, audio from the DR-44WL can be broadcast via Wi-Fi to your smartphone for streaming playback. Even when the DR-44WL is in a place that is out of reach, this capability allows you to check audio from the headphone jack. Ensure that you're getting the sound you want without leaving your seat. Instantly Transfer Recordings to Your Smartphone or PC to Share Online In addition to remote control, the DR-44WL allows you to wirelessly transfer recordings to your smartphone or laptop. Upload recordings to SoundCloud through the app, then publish that link to Facebook, Twitter and other social media. Or simply email the file to friends. Dual-Format Recording Function Records both WAV and MP3 Files Dual Format Recording simultaneously records WAV and MP3 files to the card. This allows you to have instant access to the MP3 file for online sharing, while retaining the uncompressed WAV file master recording for later use. Due to MP3 file specifications, this function canonly be used with 16-bit 44.1/48kHz WAV formats. This function cannot be used with 24-bit or 96kHz WAV/BWF file formats. Share audio files from SoundCloud to other social networking services After recording, transfer your files from the recorderto your smartphone using the TASCAM DR Control app. Files can be uploaded directly to SoundCloud, then you can share that link to Facebook, Twitter or Google+ timelines with a single button. A free SoundCloud account can be created, giving you up to three hours of uploaded recordings. Wirelessly Transfer Files to Your Computer A free app for Mac and Windows called File Transfer allows you to move selected recordings from the DR-44WL to your computer over WiFi. Peak Reduction and Limiter These functions automatically adjust the recording level in response to the input level. The peak reduction function automatically lowers the level if an input overload is detected, optimizing the recorded sound. The limiter reduces excessive input levels without changing the input level setting. Automatic Track Creation by Time The DR-44WL can automatically create a new file and continue recording without interruption when a set amount of time has elapsed. This function is convenient when recording for long periods of time. For example, when set to 5 minutes, a new file will be created automatically every 5 minutes when recording. These files can be combined later in your audio editing software for seamless playback. Manual file increment is also possible by pressing the Record button during recording. Automatic Track Creation by Level TheDR-22WL can create a new track every time a level threshold is passed. This can split a concert recording into tracks and can be useful when digitizing another recording like a cassette, DAT or vinyl record. Automatic Mark Function Marks can be added to files when high levels or peaks are detected. When set to a level, marks can be added automatically at the points when songs end. When set to peak detection and used together with the peak reduction function, these marks will identify the points where peaks were detected - making it easy when using audio editing software on a computer. Youcan also add markers manually while recording. File Divide This function can divide files where marks are added.When used together with the automatic marking function, long recordings can automatically be divided into files with individual songs. Files can also be divided manually.
