MUSIC 169 - Electroacoustic Music Techniques
Unit One's Music Lab at Allen Hall is a multi-workstation facility that is designed to give students introductory hands-on experience with electronic and electro-acoustic audio. While the studio does have limited recording capabilities, its focus is on creative experimentation, and the composition of electronic and electroacoustic music. The courses that accompany the studio - Music 169-B, Electroacoustic Music Techniques; and Music 169-C, Composition Seminar (Fall) - use the lab to teach the basics of utilizing a digital audio workstation to realize a composer's work.
The studio features two Macintosh workstations. The first is based around a Macintosh PowerPC Dual 1.5 GHz G5 computer, ProTools LE Audio and MIDI editing software, a DIGI 002 Rack Digital Audio Interface, a M-Audio 8x8 MIDI interface, a 16 channel Behringer Mixer, Alesis MIDIVerb reverb unit, Roland XP-10 synthesizer, Casio CZ-101 synthesizer, and Absynth 3 and Modular Moog V soft-synths. The second workstation is mainly for MIDI editing and score publishing. It is built around a Macintosh PowerPC G4 computer, has a Roland MIDI keyboard controller, and features Sibelius 3 notation software.
