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
