Need a space to record some audio narration for a video essay? Laying down vocals for your next trap-meets-black-metal Bandcamp blockbuster? Maybe you’re shooting an interview, or a behind-the-scenes feature for COM230, or greenscreen for some killer VFX, or a music promo or…whatever. Some time in the TV Studio may be just what the executive producer ordered.
There are just four simple rules for using the TV Studio:
- BYO camera (or rent one from the DML). The cameras in the studio are set up to match one another for JCUTV shoots: do NOT touch them except to move them. (And don’t move them unless you absolutely have to!)
- BYO computer too: the computer in the recording booth is used ONLY for the video switcher. You MUST bring your own computer if you want to record audio.
- Leave the studio cleaner than you found it.
- Don’t mess with the switcher in the booth.
Windows folks: you may want to install the driver for the M-Track ahead of time. You can find it here under “USB Audio and MIDI Interfaces”.
