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 microphones are able to withstand up to 120dB SPL without distorting.

Cardioid condenser mics in an x-y 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.

Superior 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.)

Large LCD and 4 function buttons for easy operation

A 128×128 pixel oversized graphic LCD with backlight makes for easy operation in a variety of light conditions. 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

Scene select dial

EASY

EZ mode 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 limiter and 40Hz low-cut filter, and the trim level is set relatively low.

MUSIC

This scene optimized for live acoustic music, classical concerts and other unamplified performances. It uses the 40Hz low-cut filter.

INSTRUMENT

This 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.

Dedicated 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 puts an easily accessible large input level knob right under your fingertips.

Remote Wi-Fi control

TASCAM has revolutionized handheld recording with the new Wi-Fi control and transfer features. The DR-22WL creates its own Wi-Fi network with a supported 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 20m and allows the recorder to be placed wherever the recording sounds best. Audio from the DR-22WL can also be streamed over Wi-Fi to check the recording.

Simple Wi-Fi connections without a router

The DR-22WL connects with supported smartphones and other Wi-Fi enabled devices directly without the need of a Wi-Fi router. 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, the recording will not stop.

Remote control using the free DR Control app (iOS/Android)

The free DR Control app allows a supported 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.

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.

* Due to MP3 file restrictions, this function can only be used with 16-bit 44.1/48kHz WAV formats. This function cannot be used with 24-bit or 96kHz WAV/BWF file formats.

Automatic features streamline recording setup

Even as a professional recording device, the DR-22WL has numerous automatic functions that can make recording easier for anyone. Numerous automatic recording functions combine with functions that simplify file management.

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.
