Patrons who are interested in using the recording studio must watch an orientation video before their scheduled studio time.
All work completed in the studio must be saved on the patron’s own large-capacity (16GB or more) drive. A 1TB flash drive is available for check-out if necessary.
Intro to Garage Band/Studio Assistance
The Danbury Library staff cannot provide one-on-one assistance on demand in the recording studio. However, a volunteer is available to help with recording and sound engineering on Thursdays from 12-3pm in the audio recording studio. If you’re interested in working with our volunteer, please indicate as such when you make your reservation. For guided assistance, reservations must be made 7 days in advance. Some proficiency in using computers and recording devices is expected to achieve results.
