The Sound Studio

This is a collection of resources, instructions, and policies regarding the recording studio in the Olin College of Engineering Library.

What is The Sound Studio?

The Sound Studio is a multi-year experiment looking at ways the library can help Olin students develop their communication skills, build a portfolio and create materials that are impactful in the transformation of engineering education by engaging others in the Olin story.

Currently, the Studio has taken the form of a recording studio in the lower level of the Library in Milas Hall. This room is equipped with professional audio recording gear, a cozy atmosphere, and sound dampening panels on the walls to create the right atmosphere for conversation, reflection, and personal storytelling, and high-fidelity recording.

In practice, we hope the community uses this room how they see fit, so please send suggestions, feedback, and ideas for how to continue the experiment to library@olin.edu.
