About the Music Lab
The Music Lab is open to the entire Tech community, offering incredible digital music capabilities. Patrons can compose, print, playback, and record original music electronically; digitize analog recordings; develop aural skills through interactive programs; create marching band drills; edit and burn existing digital music; as well as listen to and watch multimedia titles. Usage of the Music Lab remains extensive, averaging 29,000 patron visits per academic year.
The Music Lab houses the library's recorded music collection of over 6000 audio titles primarily on CD and LP, including many rare recordings not available in digital format. The library also hosts an impressive collection of streaming audio and digital music recordings such as the Naxos Music Library and Digital Theatre Plus.
The Music Lab opened in 1999 with the new Pendergraft Library & Technology Center. The lab has 18 networked PC workstations, and a state-of-the-art audio-visual projection system. The Control Room contains 2 PCs, a scanner, and a Media Tower that allows distribution of media to twelve student workstations with HD television monitors for film course reserves.
