The sound booth can be reserved for recording voice, music or other sounds in a controlled environment. It is located by the window on the south side of the library building in the Fiction, Movies and Music area.
About the Sound Booth
The inside dimensions of the booth are approximately 48" x 72"
There is a Blue Yeti microphone with a USB connector (which will connect to most computers for recording) installed in the booth, but no recording equipment. We hope to have recording equipment installed in the future.
Maximum capacity for the Sound Booth is 4 people - although it is a very tight fit with that many people
While the Sound Booth minimizes outside sounds and optimizes the sound within the booth, it is not completely soundproof - so keep this in mind when using it for recording
Use the Sound Booth for recording:
- Oral History
- Music (solo or 1-3 instruments)
