Recording Studio

Getting Started

The Recording Studio is a new addition to the WeatherTech Innovation Lab and offers the space and equipment necessary to learn the basics of audio production. Whether you are recording a presentation for class, starting a podcast with friends, or finally recording that bedroom pop concept album about She-Ra you've been thinking about, the Innovation Lab would like to help you make your recordings the best they can be! Here, we've compiled a number of different tips and resources you can use, as well as services available from the Innovation Lab to get the most out of your recording experience.

The Recording Studio is located on the ground floor of Rebecca Crown Library, near the Mail Room. It operates Monday thru Friday, 10am - 4pm. There are three recording booths and a fourth recording setup in the common room of the Studio.

The Studio is available to all students, staff, and faculty who have completed an orientation--there is a link to a remote orientation on the side-bar of this page. The Recording Studio can also be reserved by classes using the space for projects. For information on how to partner with the Recording Studio and to schedule class reservations, please contact Learning Commons Librarian, Beronica Avila, at bavila1@dom.edu.

Once you have completed the Recording Studio Orientation, you can book studio time here.
