Studio 170 was generously funded by the Friends of the Danbury Library. The studio comes equipped with a sound-proof recording booth, Blue Microphones Bluebird versatile cardioid condenser microphone, FOCUSRITE Scarlett 2i2 sound card, and a mac mini loaded with Garage Band and Logic Pro X.

Studio Use

Patrons who are interested in using the recording studio must attend an orientation session before their scheduled studio time. Patrons can contact the library in order to schedule this session.

All work completed in the studio must be saved on the patron’s own large-capacity (16GB or more) drive.

The Danbury Library staff cannot provide one-on-one assistance on demand in the recording studio. Some proficiency in using computers and recording devices is expected to achieve results.

  • Valid state-issued photo ID
  • Must be over the age of 17 and present during the studio session
