Digital audio recording and MIDI music pre-production studio

Recordings on multiple independent audio channels take place in this studio. This process is controlled by a computer, and once multiple effects are added, the recording is stored in a digital format to create a master copy that is ready for the creation of digital compact discs or that serves as a stereo master for music videos. This lab is also equipped to design sound effects, to compose and arrange music based on images, and enables the centralization of the process in a double-processor G5 Macintosh.
