Providing you with Wi-Fi enabled transport control and file sharing, the DR-22WL Portable Handheld Recorder with Wi-Fi from Tascam features a built-in XY stereo microphone and is capable of recording in up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. Thanks to its built-in Wi-Fi, which requires no external network, you can control all transport functions via a free iOS and Android app. Additionally, you can use the built-in Wi-Fi to stream playback to your mobile device, as well as transfer files directly to your smart device or computer, for quick upload to social media.

The recorder supports Dual-Format recording, which tracks simultaneously as WAV and MP3 files, so you have access to smaller file sizes for sharing while maintaining the higher-quality WAV as a master track. The DR-22WL records to microSD cards. Included is a 4GB microSD card, a USB cable, and 2 AA batteries.

Cardioid Condenser Mics in an XY Pattern
Cardioid condenser capsules are mounted in acoustically tuned housings. 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 allows the DR-22WL to be used for sound effects gathering
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 Wi-Fi.)
A CIRRUS LOGIC CS42L52 is used in the DR-22WL, a premium-quality audio codec. The A/D - D/A chip features both 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
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 users who want to set the recorder up themselves
  • EZ: Makes recording simple for beginners. This option sets the auto level and 40Hz 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 40Hz 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 40Hz low-cut filter
  • Instrument: The scene works well for individual instruments. 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 120Hz low-cut filter functions
  • Manual: This scene allows all settings to be made manually. Use this one if you have recording experience or want finer control over recording settings
  • 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
Interface Features 128x128 LCD and 4 Function Keys
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
Dedication 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
The DR-22WL creates its own Wi-Fi 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 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 Wi-Fi 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-22WL can be broadcast via Wi-Fi to your smartphone for streaming playback. Even when the DR-22WL 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-22WL 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
Share Audio Files from SoundCloud to Other Social Networking Services
After recording, transfer your files from the recorder to 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-22WL to your computer over Wi-Fi
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-22WL 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
The DR-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. You can 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
Nondestructive Overdubbing Function
The overdubbing function allows additional recording on top of a previously recorded file, making the DR-22WL the perfect tool for songwriters. Capture a guitar riff idea, then add a melody on top of that. Record a jam in your rehearsal studio, then work out lyrics later. Create a file with an voiceover added to background music. A new file is created when overdubbing, so the original file is retained without changes
Internal Reverb Effect
A stereo reverb effect can be added either during recording or playback. Presets for halls, rooms and other standard environments can be utilized to suit the user and type of music. This effect can be applied during recording and playback to give your recordings a sense of space
Speed change (VSA) function for adjusting the speed from 0.5 to 2.0 times (in 0.1 increments)
A-B Loop playback function for practicing music
Automatic division function that divides files at marks (manual division also possible)
