A TASCAM Model 12 mixer/recorder is central to the production efforts at Los Angeles-based MUSE TV, which was founded a decade ago by executive producer Michael Sandoval and offers a wide range of programming that includes film, television, music, lifestyle, tech, and more.
After working in professional sports with teams such as the Los Angeles Angels, Dodgers and Galaxy, Sandoval launched MUSE TV, and what began in his house as a small website has grown dramatically. Sandoval now has content on YouTube and has expanded to Roku and Amazon with programming that can reach 150 million devices around the globe.
“We began using the Model 12 for our various podcasts,” Sandoval explains. “We started with our shows MUSE Live and This Week in Pro Wrestling to bring the best audio possible into our live streaming content, which we also broadcast on YouTube. Just recently, we have started using the Model 12 for our streaming television productions such as the Hey Han with Hannah Fletcher talk show, which is currently available on Roku and Amazon. MUSE TV is also in pre-production with our new live music show. We want to bring our audience a sound experience as if they were right in the middle of the performance. We’re using multiple channels on the Model 12 to add Dolby Atmos audio production to all our programming. In short, we are using the amazing features on the Model 12 for everything from audio to video production across all our platforms.
“One of the best features on the Model 12 is the connection to one’s computer via USB-C,” he continues. “This has a made a difference in our workflow, especially with our livestream programs and direct editing. The second feature I really like is how portable the Model 12 is. Transporting the mixer to different types of events and numerous locations has been a breeze. The Model 12 has everything you need for capturing and editing a wide range of audio work, including live music.”
For the production of This Week in Pro Wrestling, Sandoval offers some insight into how the Model 12 helps deliver the desired results “Using the Clubhouse app, we patch the phone into the Model 12, and this enables us to take live questions and comments during the show. This helps give the show an even closer to radio feel. Further, it helped us grow our audience and get more viewers and listeners.”
