DR Control is a free Tascam app for your iOS or Android smartphone that controls the DR-44WL or DR-22WL through WiFi. Control the transport, transfer files to your smartphone, upload recordings to SoundCloud, and stream audio from the recorder with this app.

DR Control allows you to operate the recorder from anywhere in the room, placing the microphones where they sound best while you start recording away from the action. You can start and stop recording or playback, verifying that the meters and time counter are moving. The app also allows you to adjust the input gain, change the stereo mix, enable the low-cut filter or limiter, and virtually any other control on the recorder. When recording has stopped, you can transfer audio files from the recorder to your phone without plugging in any wires. DR-22WL and DR-44WL can record WAV and MP3 audio at the same time, so you can upload the MP3 file while retaining a high-quality WAV recording. DR Control will upload your audio to SoundCloud, a free service that makes it simple to share music online. Simply copy the SoundCloud link and post on Facebook, Twitter, or other social networks.

* Connecting to WiFi may reduce the DR-22WL/DR-44WL battery life. When not in use, please use 'Deep Sleep mode'.
* Please allow time for data transfer, especially when transferring WAV files.
* If there are dropouts in the WiFi signal, the app display may be affected but the DR-44WL and DR-22WL will continue recording.
* You cannot record directly into the Tascam DR CONTROL app. Recording is done with the DR-22WL/DR-44WL recorders.
