Audio Booth

Introduction

Located in the bottom floor of the library, the recording studio is a snug space that allows students to produce, record, and mix their music. Inside the booth, you can find an essential selection of audio equipment to create professional-caliber music. While most of the equipment is user friendly, a brief training session is required to ensure that the space is properly used and respected to provide a quality environment for aspiring and experienced artists alike.

How to access: bottom floor of the library, inside the Critical Making Studio.
