Recording Studio @ the TEC is now open!

In today’s world of home audio production, the Studio at the TEC has all the equipment you need to record voice-over, soundtrack, sound effects, music or podcasts. The main computer in the studio is a 16GB iMac and there is a 16 channel usb mixer with effects loop. Current recording software includes Audition, Audacity and GarageBand, but Protools and Fruit Loops(FL Studio) will soon be added.


So if you have a project you’ve been considering or you just want to dabble in recording, schedule some time or just stop by the TEC for a crash course on how it’s set up and get started! It’s easier than you think, and it’s free with your library card.
