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.
NOTE: You must check in at the Ask Us desk at the time of your reservation to gain admission to the room. Make sure you bring your Wolfpack One card to check out materials necessary for completing the reservation.
