Digital Audio Lab

WSI Entertainment is equipped with one of the best Digital Audio Lab facilities in the country. Each station is fully compatible with our main recording studio and allows students to mix/edit recordings done in the main studio. All computers are networked which allows for easy file transfer from the lab to the main studio. The room has 16 stations which equals one per student in class. No crowding around one computer here!
