The Digital Learning Lab is equipped with two audio rooms for audio recording, mixing and editing. Each room features a Mac Pro, a FocusRite Scarlett 2i2 audio preamp, and a Rode NT2A vocal condenser microphone. There is also a 49-key M-Audio midi keyboard available. The audio rooms have the same software as the rest of the DLL, including Audacity, GarageBand, Logic, Reaper, and Adobe Audition. We also have Screenflow for recording screencasts.
For assistance using the DLL audio rooms, or questions about editing audio, check our “How do I do that?” page or Ask Us a question. If you have recommendations to improve the audio rooms, please share them via the Ask Us form.
The two audio rooms, 130B and 130C, are walk-in spaces throughout the year. At the end of the semester we require 1-hour reservations (please limit to two consecutive blocks per day).
Since the DLL Audio Rooms are treated to reduce echo but not [yet] soundproofed, we recommend scheduling your recording between 9 a.m. and noon if possible.
For groups larger than 2-3, or for faculty recordings, we suggest a visit to determine whether the DLL Audio Rooms are the best resource. A good alternative is the Broadcast Studio located on the A-floor of the Lewis Science Library building.
