Studio One Sound Engineering Policy


The Maplewood Library Create Space now offers Studio One 3 sound engineering software for all your sound recording needs.  Studio One provides high-end, professional tools for recording and editing audio that can take on many projects – from single track, spoken word recordings to multi-track instrumental recordings. Come into the Create Space to lay down that audition track, or bring your band’s recording to produce a professional quality demo!

Some proficiency in using computers and recording devices is beneficial, but not required. We will provide you with an easy to follow, brief user guide, as well as a brief one-on-one tutorial. Should you need further assistance, please call the Hilton Branch librarian at 973-762-1688 to schedule a half hour session with assistance.

*Please note this is an amateur recording space! We offer the chance to work with quality equipment and introduce you to the production process, but the sound quality is not what you might find in a professional studio.
