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?
Thanks,

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.
