Tascam DR-44WL is a groundbreaking four-track recorder with stereo mics, XLR mic inputs and Wi-Fi. 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 Wi-Fi 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.
