FUJI Acoustic Music Festival

PDF

Installed products

HS-8, SS-CDR200, RC-HS20PD

Overview

At the FUJI acousmatic music festival, electroacoustic music known as musique concrete and acousmatic music is produced in performances by the composers themselves using an acousmonium, which is a three-dimensional sound system that reproduces sound using multichannel speakers to create a sonic space.
At the second festival, which was held in 2011, through performances using a mixer with both simple two-channel and eight-channel sounds, an enveloping sonic space was create using a 30-channel system with 32 speakers.
Our RC-HS20PD remote controls were used with SS-CDR1 solid-state/CD recorder for the playback of two-channel audio and HS-8 eight-channel audio recorders for the playback of eight-channel audio.

The FUJI acousmatic music festival program includes 15 composers who are active in the field of electroacoustic music in Japan and aboard. We have built a sound system (acousmonium) that uses 30 speaker channels to achieve three-dimensional sound reproduction. For the playback equipment, which can be called the heart of the system, we used an HS-8 for the first time.
The aligned desires of the composers and goals of the festival were to further improve the sound quality of the acoustic space and increase the audio resolution, but these were large tasks. Incorporation of the HS-8, however, allowed us to significantly achieve these goals.

In particular, for performances that take a long time, the HS-8's operation stability and the lack of any trouble under severe usage conditions for about 48 hours from the start of rehearsal to the end of the performance offer excellent reasons to think seriously about utilizing it again in the future.

This time, rather than using the equipment as a recorder, I used it as a multi-track playback device. Since this use is a little different from its original purpose, I am afraid my comments might not quite be what TASCAM expects.
First of all, the sound quality is quite good. Most of the recording and playback equipment I have access to, while having become digital and more compact, seems to have also declined in audio quality compared to the analog equipment of the past. So honesty, I did not have high expectations.

When I actually heard the sound, through, I was surprised by the accurate sound output, which was true to the sound that I intended as its author. When playing back data, the RC-HS20PD remote control unit was really easy to use and being able to access the beginning of tracks quickly was good.
This time, I needed to transfer individual wav files that I had already mixed to eight channels in a DAW to the HS-8 eight-track. Once I got the basics, this process went smoothly.
With its generally high sound quality and the ability to endure continuous playback, I feel that this device is perfect for live performances using multi-track playback.

Mr. Saburo Ubukata

Composer

Until now, when introducing high-resolution multi-channel works, in consideration of sound quality, I naturally had to use computers and audio interfaces, even through they create a lot of uncertainties as playback systems. Alternatively, even through the resolution was lower, using the playback equipment available before was unavoidable in many cases. Particularly in this latter type of situation, I really felt how difficult electroacoustic music is because the output is a crucial element.
In contrast, using the HS-8 this time, all of those issues were wiped away at once for the first time. The high-resolution output with its descriptive powers recreated the sound as I had imagined it in a live setting with no discrepancies in the sound quality from when monitoring during production of the work.
The operability and solidity of the main unit and the remote control unit, as well as the stability of the system leave nothing to criticize. I could really rely on this equipment.

CD player:CD-9010 + RC-9010S + AK-S9010 + AK-A9010
Main application:CD players for transmission(replacement from CD-701 and RC-601)

Overview

FM Sanin is an FM broadcaster that reaches Tottori and Shimane prefectures and other nearby areas in Japan. It has ten translator stations in the region, including in Matsue and Tottori. This broadcaster has adopted our CD-9010 system in their main studio. They have upgraded from a system with TASCAM CD-701 and RC-601 units that they had previously used.
Since the previous system was operated with specialized furniture, with the adoption of the CD-9010 system this time, they also incorporated out AK-S9010 stands and AK-A9010 armrests designed for the units.
Previously, dedicated monitoring speakers were necessary, but with the incorporation of this model, they are no longer needed because monitoring can be done with the RC-9010S units. They finished the AK-A9010 armrests to match the design of their console.

BC$STANDBY tallies are sent from the HS-2000's parallel control connector and play commands are sent from the APS server in this system. BWF-J format is used in take made and in on-air mode, which is a mode unique to the HS-2000.

In the sub-studio, the main application of the HS-2000 is as a production recorder, replacing the 6mm tape decks and MO and MD discs previously used for this work. Moreover, taking advantage of its ability to handle a wide range of formats, it is also used for playback of data brought in from elsewhere.

X-48MKII
Main application:Playback of attraction sounds (including music and effects)

Overview

© 2013 SANRIO CO., LTD.

Sanrio Entertainment Co., Ltd. operates Sanrio Puroland, an amusement park located in Tama Center (Tama City, Tokyo), which is also where TEAC is headquartered. Sanrio puroland, which has a large 21,173m² property, opened in 1990 as the first entirely outdoor theme park in Japan.

The theme park has incorporated an X-48MKII as a multi-track audio playback device for the "Power The Kitty" attraction.

Another system has been set up that uses the X-48MKII as the timecode master. Video display devices (for projection mapping, shown in the photo to the left) receive this timecode and operate as timecode slave units. In this system, transport control is sent from a third-party MMC controller (photo below) to operate the X-48MKII, and video is synchronized with audio playback to be shown. Multi-track recordings created in Pro Tools are imported and played back by the X-48MKII not only as background music but also for sound effects and other audio.

The X-48MKII has an IF-AN24X optional analog card installed. The X-48MKII is using analog connection for communication with the digital mixer. The audio is output to the attraction after mixing.
