Welcome to the website for Music Technology at UNC!

The Music Technology Center, created by a grant from the Colorado Commission on Higher Education and the National Endowment for the Arts, was completed in 1993 and houses multiple computer and keyboard labs, digital audio, video, and multimedia suites, and a state-of-the-art recording studio.

A wide variety of technological resources are available for students and faculty, including 33 new iMac digital audio workstations in the computer lab, and another 16 MacBook workstations in the keyboard lab, each with its own new Roland HP203 88-key digital piano with complete MIDI integration. Individual suites provide additional space for digital audio recording and editing, including 5.1 surround sound, digital sound synthesis, film scoring and multimedia projects.

In addition to a variety of keyboard workstations, synthesizers, and hardware sound modules, students will find the latest software programs to suit their preferences, whether notating with Finale or Sibelius, recording with Pro Tools, Logic or Audacity, sequencing with Ableton Live, Reason, Digital Performer or GarageBand, creating arrangements with Band-in-a-Box, or practicing Music Theory with Practica Musica.
