NANIWA EXP live recording

The TASCAM US-16x08 and TASCAM X-48II were used for the multi-track recording of Japan's leading fusion band NANIWA EXP's live DVD titled "NANIWA EXPRESS The Revival of 1,2,3,4,5 people! Multi-Angle Live 2014". The FOH is split directly to 3 US-16x08 units in the mic-pre mode. In addition, an IF-AN24X analog expansion card was inserted into the X-48MII, and the US-16x08 and X-48MKII were connected with three TRS-D-sub multi-cables. SONAR X3 PRODUCER was used for editing, mixing, and some mastering later on.
* The audio on the DVD has been compressed due to the large multi-angle footage.
