MA-4 Studio

Part of Humax Cinema, Shinjuku’s HAC Studio is a long-standing facility on Japan’s postproduction landscape. Founded in 1995 it has various studios spread across multiple buildings and has adopted a 32-channel Tascam ML-32D Analogue/Dante Converter for audio production between these and the company’s main building, located across the street.

Handling a wide range of projects including music video, live concert footage, TV commercials, movies, drama series,and projects extended to the production and delivery of web and promotional movies, the ability to play, monitor and record audio within multiple studios is a crucial aspect of day-to-day operations.

HAC’s MA-4 Studio, established in 2019, was designed for efficient, time-saving transfer of video data such as QuickTime between studios to expedite editing. The studio’s well-maintained and neatly spaced infrastructure provides both engineers and clients a comfortable listening/production experience. With MA-4 Studio’s ‘1 floor per client’ concept, it offers abundant room for creativity. Although MA-4 Studio is in a building across an intersection from the main studio’s complex, mutually connecting both studio’s servers with dark fibre greatly reduced the time required to copy and transfer data between studios, which previously could take several hours, depending on the nature of the content.

HAC rack with Tascam ML-32D and Avid The MA-4 Studio has a narration booth where recordings able to accommodate up to of four people. Talkback and monitoring operations are accomplished with the Tascam ML-32D, which converts analog signals into Dante. Together with Avid’s MTRX audio interface, DAW I/O routing and management of each postproduction process is smartly designed for maximum flexibility.

Further, there were concerns related to load capacity and ceiling height, as the MA-4 Studio itself is located on the third floor of an office building. By taking advantage of the ML-32D’s Dante capability and combining multiple channels into a single LAN cable, there was no need to route large numbers of analogue cables. This resulted in the elimination of physical considerations such as weight limitations.

Alongside its use of the ML-32D, HAC’s MA-4 Studio routinely makes use of additional Tascam products. The DA-3000 High Resolution Stereo Master Recorder and AD/DA Converter is the facility’s go-to device for capturing stereo PCM/DSD recordings at high sampling rates. The facility also uses the Tascam DV-RA1000 High-Resolution DVD Master Recorder, and VS-R264 and VS-R265 Streamer/Recorder units are high on the company’s interest list, as they also manage VTuber events in their group movie theatres. Additionally, Tascam AV-P250 power distributor/conditioner units are deployed throughout the facility.
