COM 346 Advanced Hybrid Music Studio

The Advanced Hybrid Music Studio in COM 346 (along with COM 347) supports the Hybrid Music class as well as contract students utilizing music technology. COM 346 houses the Buchla 200, one of our legacy synths. This space also includes an Otari MX-5050 mkIII 8-track 1/2" tape deck for recording to magnetic tape and producing tape loops, as well as a variety of modular synths, drum machines, MIDI controllers, and digital and software synthesizers. The Advanced Hybrid Music Studio is capable of both analog and digital synthesis and composition.
