TASCAM DR CONTROL is an app that allows you to control the DR-22WL/DR-44WL Linear PCM Recorders remotely via Wi-fi. Enjoy handy recording on the DR-22WL/DR-44WL with a smartphone or tablet without the location restictions of a computer.

TASCAM DR CONTROL allows you to remotely control recording levels, filter settings, file organizing and file transfer from DR-22WL/DR-44WL to your smartphone or tablet device.
Also you can choose the connection from two different type:
- “VIA ROUTER” mode enables the wireless remote control operation by connecting your smartphone or tablet device to a Wi-Fi router installed in a studio or at home. Remote control is operable with email, map, or other apps and online services at the same time
- “TO DEVICE” mode allows direct, one-to-one connection with the DR-22WL/DR-44WL, and so the remote control function works in the outdoor environment where Wi-Fi router is not available

No way to delete a transfered file

so far it's ok. i like the new feature in the newer recorders to be able to do this. but there's one major thing that needs to be addressed (there may be other things too), and that is the ability to delete an sound file that has been transfered over from the recorder to the ios device. currently, there just ISN'T a way to do this...which is really weird.

Works perfectly

I am very happy with the app. It makes remote receding easy. No issues at all.

If it connects to your router you're a lucky one

Such a good idea so haphazardly put together. Way too slow in making it even functional after release. Connecting to a router is well and good (that at most remotes there isn't a secure network available notwithstanding) but I can't connect to my home router. Not that I ever use the Tascam at home but it saves me the trouble of wasting time with that feature in the field). Making the remote direct to device work beyond a few feet would make more sense. At least for the past few months it's been worth using that way, so I'm pleased about that. But it's frustrating that the plus about using it is that it improves on the unit's terrible interface (especially where input functions and levels are concerned) so you basically should use it, but the ios app is so poorly executed that it's 5 steps forward and 5 back. Seems like Tascam didn't even test it before advertising and releasing it, and firmware updates haven't really changed much (except make it actually work) until recent ones. Very slow in that regard.
