Music Technology Studios
Three levels of class piano are taught in a large piano lab in Weber Chapel. The Yamaha-based interactive lab features 12 stations.
Housed in the Cunningham Center for Music and Art, the music computer lab features seven Macintosh-based stations. Each has its own midi keyboard. Supported software includes Finale, Audacity, Garageband, iMovie, iWeb, the Adobe Creative Suite and Microsoft Office.
Located in the basement of Weber Chapel, the recording studio occupies three separate rooms totaling approximately 1,300 square feet. The large and acoustically isolated sound recording room contains a drum set, a grand piano, a Hammond organ with Leslie speaker and a large microphone collection. The control room features a powerful Macintosh computer with a MOTU audio interface and many electronic musical instruments, including a ZETA cello, a WX7 Wind Controller, a Korg Wave drum, a DK10 midi percussion instrument, a Korg Kaos Pad, a Moog Theremin and several keyboards. The computer system runs Logic Audio, Audacity, Finale, Max/msp/jitter, Reason and several other popular applications.
