Four Music Rooms on the fourth floor are fully equipped for creating and mixing music, voice recording, audio transfer, and digital media editing, with full 88-key MIDI controller/keyboards, professional microphones, turntables, cassette decks, and digital media workstations. Documentation regarding room use is provided for users upon check-in. Note that room C does not have a MIDI keyboard but one may be checked out from Technology Lending.
The weighted, 88-key MIDI controllers are perfect for keyboard recording and practice, but for those seeking a traditional piano experience, there are eight practice studios available to NC State students on a first-come, first-served basis in Price Music Center, the home of the Music Department.
