The Audio Lab has two digital audio workstations, each with multi-track audio software, digital mixer, and MIDI keyboard. Workstation #2 has an installed microphone for podcast recording. There are connections to plug in electric guitars, keyboards and other electronic instruments.
The room has been acoustically treated; it is very quiet but it is not sound proof. Spoken word may be recorded, but we do not permit singing or the use of acoustic instruments in this space.

Please note that the Audio Lab is one room with two workstations. Both workstations are reservable, but if you are working on a recording project and need the room to yourself, be sure to book both workstations. Priority goes to those with reservations; walk-ins will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis, as space permits.
