Take your creativity to the next level with the resources available at the new Exchange building! Makers have been exploring all the equipment and spaces we have available for La Porte County residents. This month we’re showcasing the Audio Studio.


What is the Audio Studio used for?

Are you interested in utilizing a sound-proofed practice space to learn a new musical instrument? Do you need to record audio tracks for a class or work project? The Audio Studio at the LPCPL Exchange is available to record and edit a variety of projects like podcast recordings, interviews, music equipment recordings, vocal demos, and more! The reservable space allows you to book your visit ahead of time so you can have a quiet space to focus on your recording and editing at your own pace.


Editing Software

The studio comes equipped with an iMac and the following editing and recording software:

  •         Audition from Adobe Creative Cloud Suite
  •         Audacity
  •         GarageBand
  •         Logic Pro X

 Visit our online Audio Studio course to learn more about how to use these tools for your project.



Bring your own equipment or use some of the equipment we have available to record your pieces.
