Solid audio recording, as expected from TASCAM. Plenty of options give you the flexibility to dial in the proper gain on the mics so that you don't peak out. WiFi connection with downloadable app is super clutch. We use it at rehearsals and everyone gets the recordings the same night they were made. Comes with a micro SD card, so you are ready to roll right out of the box. These portable recorders are the secret to the universe! Always record yourself, always have references...and now download them to your WiFi equipped device in no-time! Caution: this thing EATS batteries...get some rechargeable, you'll be much happier...

Good quality

It really records good. We run everything through the PA so I hook it to the record out on the PA to check the balance and sound. The instructions were not clear how to get to the program I needed so I synced it to my phone. That feature is really nice. That solved the problem.

Great recorder!!

Awesome quality, various settings to accommodate various sources. XY formation really adds to that stereo field. Wish I would get out in the field with it more!!

Fantastic recorder best for the money!

I was really excited when I saw the announcement for this recorder along with the 4 channel version. The WiFi feature is very appealing for weddings, live events and anything else where you would want to check your levels without being by the recorder or even touching it. As of launch there is already firmware updates that you can find on the Tascam website so make sure to go download them and follow the easy instructions to update your DR-22WL. There are still some bugs but I'm sure those will be fixed soon.The Wifi feature is having some bugs at launch for iOS and the wifi "almost real time" monitoring isn't working but most of everything is and its really smooth. Starting/stopping recording and marking spots works well as does changing levels and other settings and viewing your levels. The Android app is very lacking and only shows battery life, levels, stop start and thats about it. I am hoping that they will update it soon.The build quality of the device is very good for the price and I really like the screen.menu setup along with the formats it allows you to use and other features that make this device very convenient. I plan on updating this review as I use it more and issues get fixed.

Great Field Recorder

Very happy with my choice. Great sound quality, love the wi-fi remote feature.Pro:- Line/mic input preamp better than older models.- Low self noise.- Intuitive UI, prevents accidental loss or deletion of audio while recording.- Preset scene control saves time in run-and-gun situations.- Nice gain management options.- 3-step HPF is nice for bass management. - Wi-fi remote app is VERY useful, allows streaming audio for remote monitoring, remote level adjustments, start/stop and other changes on the fly. Con:- WiFi connection to smartphone iis hard on AA's. Use an external USB battery pack or AC adapter if you need to monitor for more than 30 minutes.- Internal speaker VERY weak. Good enough to check for audio, nothing more.- Need TRRS - TRS adapter to use smartphone earbuds as headphones.
