The groundbreaking DR-22WL from Tascam 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 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.

Included in the DR-22WL 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. For a recording beginner or experienced user looking for a great-sounding, portable recorder with WiFi, the DR-22WL is the only choice.

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 built 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 capsules are mounted in acoustically-tuned housings. The true XY pattern captures the stereo field in phase-alignment, for perfect imaging during playback. 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.

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 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 uses who want to set the recorder up themselves. The following scene settings are available:

  • EZ Mode: EZ mode makes recording simple for beginners. This option sets the auto level and 40 Hz low-cut filter functions
  • LOUD: This scene is tailored for loud events like rehearsals and concerts. It automatically sets the peak reduction, pre-record and 40 Hz low-cut filter, and the trim level is set relatively low.
  • MUSIC: This scene is optimized for live acoustic music, classical concerts and other unamplified performances. It uses the peak reduction, pre-record and 40 Hz low-cut filter.
  • INSTRUMENT: This scene works well for individual instruments and it engages the limiter to keep levels under control.
  • INTERVIEW: Designed for interview recording, voiceovers and lectures, this scene records in mono and uses the auto level and 120 Hz low-cut filter functions.
  • MANUAL: This scene allows all settings to be made manually. Use this scene if you have recording experience or want finer control over recording settings.
  • DUB (Overdub/Airdub): This scene enables the overdubbing function, allowing songwriters to assemble a song by recording over their previous take.
  • PLAY FUNCTION: The play function scene makes playback functions available like playback speed adjustment, useful for practice and transcription.

The 128×128 LCD, 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. 

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 WiFi Control
Tascam has revolutionized handheld recording with the recent WiFi control and transfer features. The DR-22WL creates its own WiFi network with your iOS or Android phone, and a free app called DR Control controls remote operation without touching the unit. The app allows recording to be started and stopped, and can be used to check and adjust input levels. Any of the recording controls on the DR-22WL can be controlled over WiFi.

WiFi 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 WiFi to check the recording. Plug headphones into your smartphone and listen to a near-realtime feed from the recorder.

The DR-22WL connects with smartphones and other WiFi devices directly. There is no need for a WiFi router network or other external equipment. WiFi 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.

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 WiFi use.

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.
