Music Technology Laboratory

 

Music Technology Lab

Description

The Music Technology Laboratory is open to all students who are taking music classes, to work on class assignments and outside-of-class practice, technical exploration and research, or for their own projects. 

Also a classroom, the lab provides access to hardware and software for use in music theory/ear training, music notation, audio recording and editing, MIDI sequencing, synthesis/audio processing, graphics, scanning, word processing and more.

The Music Tech Lab offers employment opportunities for students to work as lab monitors, and is managed by one of our Graduate Assistants.

Hardware

Each computer is connected to an M-Audio music keyboard- most are 49-key, but there are four 61-key and two 88-key devices.  These keyboard controllers also function as audio interfaces.  The lab also houses a Yamaha Clavinova.  Sony and M-Audio headphones are available from the laboratory attendant.
