        Comments about Tascam Dr-44Wl Portable Recorder With Xlr And Wifi:

        132 db?? 4 times the threshold of being able to tell that the volume has changed, makes this a huge difference from its counter part the td22. More space for recording time and higher quality of condenser mics make this a must have. Amazing sound quality.

        Take the Tascam DR-22WL and take it up a notch and here you have it. The 44WL is a 4 track portable recorder with WiFI functionality to control the functions of the unit and also for file transfer to the provided app from Tascam. The unit is capable of both high quality MP3 and WAV file recording, and will hold up to a 32G SD card. Provides stereo, four channel, or dual recording modes.

          Comments about Tascam Dr-44Wl Portable Recorder With Xlr And Wifi:

          Tascam has redesigned the mics on this recorder and they sound great. Super easy to use menu files make this a breeze to navigate through. And can we say WiFI! This is huge. A free app lets you remote control all the transport controls or stream directly to your device. How cool is that! Built in 4 track multitrack lets you mix on the fly anywhere you are. One of the cleanest, easiest hand held recorders on the market. I am a reviewer for Sam Ash Music, Cleveland.

          Comments about Tascam Dr-44Wl Portable Recorder With Xlr And Wifi:

          The Tascam DR-44WL Portable Recorder with XLR and WiFi is a high end handheld recording system. It is similar to the 22 but this has two built in XLR connectors so you can have a 4 band recording. The WiFi feature is awesome so you can transfer your recordings to your phone or computer or the internet right away!
