Audio Studio

Digital Union Feature


The audio recording studio is a sound-insulated, quiet room equipped with tools that facilitate the recording and editing of audio files. The studio includes microphones, software for audio capture and editing, and playback capabilities.


The Digital Union's professional quality audio studio is located in Denney Hall. The studio is ideal for guests with advanced needs such as multi-track recording, microphones for a variety of instrument types, and advanced editing software. It is primarily designed for music recording, but is also appropriate for voiceovers or conversation recording. For the latter, you may also wish to see our Podcast Studio in the DU: Work Studio located in Hagerty Hall.

Beginners are welcome, and staff are available to assist with the recording process.

Call us at 614.292.3654 to reserve the recording studio in Denney, preferably at least one day in advance.
