Sound Studio


Slover Library expands its creative resources with the grand opening of the Sound Studio, providing a dedicated space for independent creators and building a bridge from home recording to professional studio. The fourth installment in the Creative Studios, the Sound Studio joins the Design, Maker and Production Studios to inspire patrons to “Discover, Learn, Create, and Share.” Free and open to the public, the Sound Studio serves Norfolk’s vibrant community of over 1,000 recording artists and producers as well as educational programs dedicated to audio and music.

The brand-new space offers two sound booths: the smaller for voice-over work and vocal recording and the larger for collaboration and recording with live instruments. Patrons can utilize two state-of-the-art post-production stations, each with 27” iMacs and headphones for editing and mixing audio. Software includes the industry standard application Logic Pro X in addition to Garageband, Audacity, Komplete by Native Instruments, UA Console, and a wide variety of plug-ins. The studio also provides a variety of quality microphones, Korg Monologue Synthesizer, Moog Theremini, Native Instruments Maschine, USB Keyboards, Squier P-bass, Squier Jaguar, and an Alesis V-drum kit.
