    I use this in my home studio as well as to record podcasts while I'm broadcasting. I've also used it occasionally to record presentations outside my office and it works wonderfully. Highly recommended.

        Comments about Tascam DR-44WL Handheld Linear PCM Recorder:

        It comes with everything to get you started. Even batteries. The Tascam app for iOS devices work flawlessly on an iPad Pro, and a iPhone 6 and 8. It connects easily through a router or directly via WiFi. There are so many wireless features that it would be better to go to the Tascam website and read the .pdf manuals instead of the brief run through in a sales description.

        The 44wl is an amazing piece of gear. I needed something to record field samples to mangle with synths and use with Maschine, but it's been used to help with audio notes, recording meetings, practice performances, and live...and it sounds good powering a condenser mic, too (although I've tried that only with the power supply as I'm sure the batteries wouldn't do that function any justice).

        The sound quality is very, very good. The onboard mics pick up a lot - even someone walking by, so just be careful with levels and placement. The onboard reverb isn't exactly TC or Eventide quality, so I played with it enough to just ignore it. I think that if you are doing a take as a band and you need something to "just see" what the sound could manage to be without transferring the file to a DAW, it's fine, but I'd be hard pressed to use it on a demo.

        The flow of the unit isn't for the feint-of-heart. There is so much functionality that it becomes somewhat cumbersome to learn, but it is well worth the effort. Just be sure to learn how to set the recording levels and how to link and unlink tracks 1&2 and 3&4 for mono or stereo operation. It's easier to do with the wireless app than on the device itself.

        Outside of a slightly less than intuitive UI, this is everything that a person could need in a portable recorder. I've used Tascam gear in broadcast radio, studios, in a garage band, and now for on-the-go recording...so for over, well, 25 years if I think about it...and this meets my expectations and experience with their products - engineered to be used, and to work well. Another A+ for Tascam.
