Where Can I Record Audio at BMC?

 

 Video & Audio Recording Studio: _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Canaday: Studio 313

  • This room seats 2-3 people.
  • Its access key can be checked out from the Canaday Circulation Desk.
  • The studio is equipped with a working desk, computer (paired with wide-screen mounted monitor), 4K camera, USB hub, and a formal BMC backdrop that also doubles as a green screen background when turned around.
  • Great space to holding interviews, record audio, video, or do a little video-editing!
  • For more info about the space, check out: https://www.brynmawr.edu/lits/spaces/studio-313.

 

 Individual Viewing Carrels:

 

Canaday: Rooms 303, 305, 309:

  • Each carrel seats 2 people.
  • You can check out the key to the carrel and headphones from Canaday's Circulation Desk.
  • Each room also has a multi-standard, region-free DVD and VCR player.

 

        Carpenter: Digital Media and Collaboration Lab:

  • This lab contains 6 workstations and 4 media scapes.
  • Although it is a more open space than the private viewing rooms, the media support here makes it a great place to edit your podcasts.

        
         Collier: Room 380

  • This room may be booked ahead via sign-up sheet by door.

 

Group Viewing Rooms:

Canaday 311, 313:

  • This is a private room that seats 6 people.
  • You can check out the key at Canaday's Circulation Desk or use on a walk-in basis when available.

 

NOTE: Even though each of these rooms have been traditionally used to project or view videos and media (with the exception of the Media Lab), they are private and quiet--this makes them great spots to record audio for your podcasts!
