I wanted to see what days and times are available to come to the studio.

What software tools are available for mixing? Protools, Steimberg, iZotope, MOTU?

Any software plugins for effects, virtual instruments. Native Instruments Ultimate, Arturia V, Antares Auto-Tune, Celemony?

Nothing in the equipment list on the available software.

Studio916 currently uses Logic X Pro for our mixing.
We have a few software plugins along with virtual instruments: NI Komplete 11 for Maschine MK2 along with NI Komplete Kontrol S88 Mk2 Keyboard among others

Hello, I am a Singer Songwriter and am interested in recording some demos. Can you let me know how I can make that happen?

Hi Eric,

We have a recording studio at the Sand Creek Library on South Academy. After taking a one hour orientation class, you can use the PPLD calendar to find available studio slots and sign up for a time to come in. We also have dedicated computers for editing materials once it's recorded so you don't have to fight for studio time to use the software for editing. If you have more questions, feel free to give us a call at (719) 597-7070.

i would love to work on mixtape

We are creating a client testimonial for our non-profit. We aren't able to get the client into your studio to film them. We can film them with a good quality Nikon camera. Are we able to use your editing software? Can you tell me what editing software you have?
Thank you!

You can use our editing software. We have an editing bay that has adobe and logic on one computer. As long as you have a library card, you can use the editing bay computer with those programs and sue the program of your choice.

Thank you,
TerryJosiah and the Studio 916 Team

It can be a little confusing when you're looking for a studio session. Follow the link at the bottom of this comment to see a calendar view that is just the studio sessions. Then when you hover over a session the sidebar will pop out showing you if there are any seats remaining. 0 means the session is already booked, 1 means you can book it. You will probably have to click ahead into August's calendar to find a session. We generally have about a 3 week lead time for sessions. You can also call the Sand Creek library at 597-7070 to book a studio session.
