Need your recording to be more flexible? Hire our Zoom R16 Multitrack recorders and mics, straight from our rehearsal and practice rooms, then use our world-class performance booths to start producing and perfecting. Being connected with tie lines, you can even use one room for live recording and another as a control room, so you can step in and out of the action when it suits.

If you need to do location recordings, that’s no problem: just hire a MacBook and interface and go anywhere on campus.
