What new in the MC? Well, we have 2 brand new podcast rooms bringing our total to 4 plus the studio, of course. One podcast room is modeled after the previous ones as we converted a walkin closet. The other one is a pop up room from the company Vocal Booth. It is a bit of a smaller space than the others but by setting it up in the collaboration space, people can record in there while small groups could still work on project. Seemed like a win-win situation to us. Stop by and take a look if you near by!
The Media Center was able to create two new podcast nooks and one large studio over the summer to accommodate the need for sound buffered areas for recording voice and music. People love using the rooms although we found it was hard to sometimes verify if the rooms were in use since there a no windows on the door. We certainly didn’t want to interrupt a recording in process so we invested in new lights that were installed outside the rooms so we could be sure when people were recording. Stop by the media center to check out the new addition and play with the technology in the recording booths!
