Audio and Learning Glass Studios

Audio studio control room.

This is a dual-purpose space, containing both an audio studio and our Learning Glass studio. Since both functions involve the creation and recording of sound, they can't really be used simultaneously.

Audio Studio

This studio is equipped to work very much like the audio studio in the Visual and Performing Arts department in the Arts building, and is mostly used by Arts students working on projects and MPS staff recording clients.

Note: The room uses ProTools HD and we are not staffed to provide engineers, so you'll already have to know what you're doing before booking this space.

Learning Glass Studio

The Learning Glass is essentially a transparent whiteboard. A camera is aimed through the glass while you write on it, so you're facing your audience while you're being recorded. The glass you are writing on is side-lit by hundreds of small LED lights, making the flourescent marker ink bright and easy to read.

The writing is flipped horizontally, so you don't need to learn to write backwards. Just teach the way you are used to teaching, and we'll take care of the recording and processing and email you a link. If your teaching involves use of equations and diagrams, this is a great way to go. 

Booking the studio

Refer to the calendar below for available days/times. The studios are open 8AM-5PM, Monday-Friday, and are closed weekends and holidays when the campus is closed. Please use the Facilities Booking Form to request room use. MPS staff will approve use or not based on availability on a first-come first-served basis. We may contact you to learn more about your intended use so we can make sure we are prepared.
