Hart Recital Hall Live Recording Equipment

The UCM live recording equipment, while portable, is housed in the Hart Recording Room and comprises high-quality digital recording equipment, great microphones, and a variety of outboard gear.

Students working with live recording use this equipment to record every concert produced by the Department of Music at UCM. They are encouraged to try different microphone setups, to hone their live-recording skills. The emphasis is on traditional live-recording techniques, instead of close-mic techniques. Since students learn close-mic techniques in the recording studio proper, this emphasis ensures a breadth of experience in recording techniques. Students also get experience in mastering live recordings.

Our philosophy is to train students on equipment used every day by professionals around the world. Following is a list of the equipment used in live recordings housed in this studio.
