Studio 2 (Electronic Music Lab)

Studio 2 is a creative environment where students can experiment with an array of electronic hardware and software devices designed to enable innovation in electronic music composition and sound design.

There is an 8-channel octaphonic (diamond formation) ceiling hung speaker array plus sub woofer

The room houses a Yamaha Diskclavier piano for performance analysis and a suite of experimental electronic synthesis hardware for ‘hands on’ sound design.  The computer workstation runs Logic Pro, Max 8 and Ableton Live 10 plus a host of other sound design, synthesis and analysis tools.
