The Computer Music Lab Gets an Update
The Computer Music Lab in the Arts & Communications building has a full room of iMac lab stations. The lab is an excellent resource for students to utilize recording and composition software such as Pro Tools, Adobe Audition, and Sibelius. It is also used for several classes, including Recording Techniques I and II, as well as Audio for Video.
Over the break, the lab was updated with brand new MIDI keyboard controllers at all stations, as well as Auralex acoustic paneling on the walls. These panels help to reduce unwanted "flutter echo" from the sound reflecting between the walls and improves the overall acoustics of the space.
We are looking forward to doing more upgrades over the course of the next year, but the changes have already provided an excellent acoustic and visual upgrade.
