About the the digital music studio

The digital music studio is a high-end facility, which has been recently refurbished and updated with new iMacs and furniture. There are two sets of the latest CDJ’s in two different locations, meaning students can mix without any noise confliction. As well as having the decks, students can also use the latest Stem mixing tools and purchase stems from popular tracks to remix and rearrange as they wish.

Students also have access to a sound proof recording booth for recording instruments and vocals in an acoustically controlled environment. The space is dived into iMac suite, booth and ‘play’ zone, where students can practice DJ skills and reconfigure equipment or build projects.
