Mobile Station #7  - Music & Recording Kit

The music and recording kit includes equipment used for audio recording and editing. Users can bring their own instruments and use the Focusrite Scarlett Solo and Shure SM58 microphone to record studio-quality music, then utilize the software "Audacity" and "Protools First" installed on the accompanying laptop (labeled Video/Music) to make edits or changes. This laptop will also be loaded with video editing software, allowing users to add their own custom soundtracks or narration to their personal videos.

Components included in the kit include the laptop with "Audacity" and "Protools First" software, Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface with Pro Tools, the Shure M58-LC Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone, the Samson MK-10 Microphone Boom Stand, the Yamaha HPH-50B on-ear headphones, the M-Audio Keystation 49 II keyboard controller, a Fender Performance Series Instrument Cable, and two microphone cables.

So the noise from the recording session does not bother other patrons, and so the library noise does not affect the recording, generally it is best if a room with a door can be provided to patrons to use as their "temporary" recording studio. Electrical outlets will also be required. A table or desk will be needed for the laptop computer and accessories. Space may also be needed to accommodate musicians and assorted instruments they may bring in. Electrical outlets will be required.
