Recording Studio and Equipment

The Faculty operates a fully equipped recording studio within our Centre for Music and Science (CMS) for use by staff and students at all levels with induction and support provided by our Technical Specialist.

Our state of the art CMS Recording Studio comprises a Control Room and a Recording Room. Both rooms are acoustically treated. The Control Room is based around a Pro Tools HD2 and a Sadie 5 system, and a Yamaha 02R96 digital mixing console. Tie lines from West Road Concert Hall and the Recital Room allow performances in these venues to be recorded in the studio. The Recording Room consists of a Pro Tools LE system. Both rooms also run MOTU Digital Performer, Steinberg Cubase and Apple Logic. Other equipment available includes an audiometer and a wide selection of microphones.

Portable recording kits are available to students and staff for recording their work either in or outside of the Faculty. Laptops and video cameras are also bookable for use in experiments.

Full details of equipment available and booking processes can be found on the CMS website.
