In addition to offering the full Adobe Creative Cloud suite on all of our computers, we also provide specialized stations for scanning, inkjet printing, audio and video editing, 3D design, and gaming.
Record your next viral hit song in the DMC Audio Studio! This acoustically-treated studio is equipped with professional monitor speakers, a full-size digital piano with weighted keys, digital and analog synthesizers, guitars, a MIDI control surface, and a digital drumset. Combined with the circulating audio gear offered by the DMC, you can set up mics, instruments, turntable controllers—whatever you need to produce and mix your project.
The use of the studio requires authorization from a trained DMC staff member. Check the schedule of upcoming workshops or contact the DMC for one-on-one training to become authorized.
The DMC Workbench and Project Space are areas for projects utilizing new and emerging technologies, time-honored tools and techniques, and traditional handicrafts. These two spaces, located to the right of our main entrance, are perfect for combining technology and the arts; for example, physical sculptures incorporating video or sound, multimedia creations, wearables, or techno-crafts.
