What are these recording booths?

Our recording booths are wheelchair-accessible, freestanding sound isolation booths lined with sound-deadening acoustic foam. They are equipped with high-end recording studio equipment and software and are designed to provide a quiet, private space for your scholarly recording and streaming needs.

Where are the recording booths?

The recording booths are located on the side wall of the Scholar Studio (on the main floor of the library). They’re giant and grey–you can’t miss them!

What’s in them?

The booth on the left has a Windows 10 PC with a 23” monitor. The booth on the right has a 27” iMac running OS High Sierra. Both booths feature:
Blue Yeti microphone with shock mount and pop filter

  • RØDE Professional Studio Boom Arm
  • Logitech C925e webcam
  • Audio-Technica ATH-M50x sound-isolating studio headphones
  • Ring light
  • USB ports for charging and data transfer

What can I use them for?

  • Remote interviews
  • Podcasts
  • Hosting/participating in a webinar
  • Recording a presentation for class
  • Recording lectures to post on Blackboard
  • Interviews/oral history projects
  • Practicing public speaking/presentation skills
  • Practicing interview skills
  • Video for applications/portfolios
  • …and more!

How do I reserve one?

Any member of the WCU community (faculty, staff and students) can reserve either booth. Just visit our online booking page.

Is there anything else I need to know?

Our acoustic foam is designed to prevent outside sounds from being heard inside the booths, not the other way around. Please be considerate of your fellow patrons.
