Music Computer Lab
The University of Pennsylvania Music Computer Lab installation was completed in January 1996. This facility was funded by SAS Computing, grants from the Instructional Computing Development Fund, a Pew grant from the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Music Department. The lab, located on the 2nd floor of the Music Building, has 12 networked workstations consisting of a Macintosh computer, keyboard controller, and audio interface. The instructor's station has additional sound resources, and audio transfer and editing equipment. All stations are equipped for audio synthesis, editing, sequencing, notation, and basic video editing.
FRI 9AM-1PM, 1:30PM-5PM
Location: Music Building 201
The lab is designed primarily to serve undergraduates registered in music classes.
Priority users are students in classes requiring or recommending lab work; at times of heavy usage, students will be limited to one hour per session to accommodate other users.
Students should attend an orientation session before using the lab. Times will be announced in classes and posted in the lab.
