McHenry Library, Room 0344
Record audio files, create podcasts, and experiment with sound in the DSC Podcasting Studio. The room offers sound insulation and can be reserved for recording or interview sessions. Podcasting equipment (microphones, audio converter equipment, and a dedicated MacBook Pro) is available with reservation.
In the David Kirk Digital Scholarship Commons, you can check out USB Microphones to be connected to any laptop or DSC computer or a set of audio equipment, including a microphone, sound mixer, and a laptop configured to record with Garage Band. To record audio directly into a phone or laptop, you may also choose to use headphone microphones, which work well.
For best results, be sure to record in a quiet and tight space without too much room for echoing (closets or insulated rooms will work well).
