Digital Scholarship at UCSC Libraries
The DSC supports audio recording and editing by offering recording spaces, equipment, workstations, and project advice.
The Audio Production Studio (APS), located in McHenry 0384, is now open. The APS is a fully equipped audio recording studio geared for spoken word and basic music recording. The sound-treated space comes equipped with an iMac for recording and editing (software includes Logic Pro X, Adobe Audition, GarageBand, and Audacity), two Shure MV7X microphones on boom arms, a Steinberg UR44C audio interface, and additional mic stands.
If you are interested in using the space for recording or editing, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that this space is sound treated, but not sound proofed. While the room is located in a quieter part of the library, there is still some noise from nearby offices and the Digital Scholarship Commons Lab. We cannot guarantee a 100% quiet environment, though the Shure MV7X microphones do a very good job of rejecting extraneous noise both inside and outside the room.
Located in McHenry Library Room 0344, the DSC Podcasting Studio is a space for you to record audio, create podcasts, and experiment with sound. The room offers sound insulation and can be reserved for recording or interview sessions. Audio equipment is available for checkout at the Media Desk in the DSC.
The land on which we gather is the unceded territory of the Awaswas-speaking Uypi Tribe. The Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, comprised of the descendants of indigenous people taken to missions Santa Cruz and San Juan Bautista during Spanish colonization of the Central Coast, is today working hard to restore traditional stewardship practices on these lands and heal from historical trauma.
The land acknowledgement used at UC Santa Cruz was developed in partnership with the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band Chairman and the Amah Mutsun Relearning Program at the UCSC Arboretum.
