A112 Recording Studio

< Back

This fully equipped recording studio employs a Pro Tools Ultimate system paired with an Avid S6 M10 control surface for audio recording. The space also doubles as an ITU 5.1 surround sound mixing and editing suite. 16 digital mic preamps and four additional analog preamps enable recording everything from monologue to voiceover, to musical scoring for film and video.

A112 Recording Studio Live Room is equipped with a wide variety of microphones for dialogue, effects, Foley, and music recording. For more complicated sessions it is best to schedule a pre-recording meeting with the engineer that you have scheduled to determine a strategy for mic choice and placement. The live room also has video playback capability for sync recording such as ADR, Foley, and live scoring sessions. To facilitate all recordings the live room is also supplied with a variety of mic stands and go-betweens. A headphone system is in place for monitoring and talkback communication between the control room and studio.

A112 is not a 24-hour space, it is closed from 4:00 am – 7:00 am when there is no HVAC.


Independent access to A112 Recording Studio can be granted to those who complete Sound Editing and Mixing Course or Sound Technician Course.

To request a Sound Recording Session with a Recording Engineer, you must complete a Recording Session Request Form, available in E104 Sound Transfer / Helpdesk. Sound Student Technicians are available to answer questions regarding the request. Availability of the studio in the later part of the Spring Semester is extremely limited. Session scheduling is dependent on the availability of the studio as well as that of our engineers.
