Rules of WCPR
Studio B Policy
Studio B is a studio room WCPR uses to broadcast live bands across the radio. During the off time we are offering it as a small practice studio and recording area. The reason for this is because we would like to contribute to the student interest in music. This is, however, at our own discretion and misuse will force us to terminate this policy.
There is a Studio B schedule going into effect. Please see us about the schedule. Bands must contact us to schedule time to use the studio one week prior to the requested time.
Studio B is setup as a “headphone only” studio. Instruments are line in, into a mixing console and sent to a headphone distribution system. For recording, we take the individual line inputs into our recoding console and have a separate mixing level for each.
If you would like to use Studio B in the off time, be prepared to bring your own headphones, instruments, microphones, and stands. The only equipment in the room will be the direct input converters, drums, mixing console, and headphone distribution amp.
It is set up for our use. Do not remove, disassemble, or re-arrange the equipment.
If you feel the need to use your own equipment in the studio please do not try and input them into our system. Here are some possible ways you can use our setup with your extra equipment:
Choice 1: If you want to use your own amp or instrument (other than line level): Put on the floor and plug your instrument into it. Then put headphones on. You will be able to hear all the instruments in the headphones expect yours. Now turn your amp volume up until you hear your amp outside the headphones and the music from inside the headphones evenly. You're done.
Choice 2: Put a microphone in front of the amp or instrument and plug the microphone into the mixing console. Adjust volumes appropriately.
Please do not leave equipment, as many people go in and out of the WCPR each day. We will not be responsible for lost or stolen property.
Thank you for your cooperation.
