The Library has two Digital Audio Suites located on the first floor in the DMZ, rooms 1015G and 1015H.  These rooms have equipment and software for sound and music editing and production.

 

1015G and 1015H the two audio suites in the DMZ

 

To use a Digital Audio Suite, you need to make a reservation in Roombook in advance

Make sure you check Roombook to see if someone else has booked the room, then create your reservation.

Follow these instructions for booking a room. It's the same process as booking a group study room; you'll just need to "search locations" for LIB 1015G and LIB 1015H instead of the group study rooms.  Searching for "audio" will retrieve both rooms G and H.

Once your reservation request has been placed, you'll receive an email confirming your request (or denying it in the case of a scheduling conflict).

When you arrive at the Library, tell a Circulation Desk attendant that you have a reservation, and a library employee will unlock the Digital Audio Suite for you.


Guidelines for using the Digital Audio Suites:

  • You may reserve a Digital Audio Suite for up to 3 hours at a time.
  • We ask that you keep the door closed while you are using the room to reduce noise (both for you and your peers studying in the DMZ).
  • Please alert a library staff member if the temperature in the room becomes too hot or cold.  
  • Finally, please recycle your trash and clean up before you leave so the room is in good shape for the next person!
     

Audio Equipment and Software Specifications:

The Digital Audio Suites each have a Mac Pro station with a 30-Inch Monitor, Digidesign 003 Factory Control Interface, Power Conditioner, Studio Headphones, and Semi-Weighted 88 Key MIDI Keyboard. "Audiophile" quality headphones are available for checkout from the Circulation Desk in the Library.  Because these computers are meant for music production, they are not connected to a printer.

See a full list of software installed on these under "Digital Audio Suite Software." This info is also listed on the CTS FAQ for software in the Library.​
