That whole “If you build it, they will come” thing certainly rang true with the podcast rooms we created last summer. We built them initially to support the growing need for recording booths for podcast projects but realized there was a void on campus when it came to music recording. Our idea was to offer a space that students (or any college employee really) could fine a space to make & record music easily and not have to worry (too much) about bothering their neighbors.
We have a mics & stands available for check out and a mini mixer, midi keyboard & Imac outfitted in both rooms. Students have really enjoyed using the spaces and it’s always appreciated when they share the music with us so we can then share it with you. Learn more from the great video our student employee Eli created and the soundtrack is provided by Mike Dempsey who recorded this tune in our podcast room!
