Here to help!
The studio technicians are all keen musicians, engineers and producers, and they really like to talk about studios, gear and techniques.
If you have a question you'd like to ask them, be it advice on a microphone, techniques for recording or a more technical question about using the outboard gear, or advanced features in the software, please don't hesitate to ask them. They may not know the answer straight away, but they'll do their best to find it for you!
If you'd rather not talk to them in person, then just drop them an email, and they'll make sure the right person responds to your query.
All the studio technicians have completed their PAT training (Portable Appliance Testing) and are able to perform basic checks on equipment.
At the moment, they don't offer the service to students, but they can advise you on how often to check your equipment to keep it in good condition and ways of using it in and around the building.
If you're planning on bringing in apiece of equipment that plugs into the power supply, please have it tested before bringing it in. If you are unsure, or you have any questions regarding electrical items, please email the technicians and they'll get back to you as soon as possible.
St. John's First Aid in the Workplace
All the studio technicians are trained in First Aid in the Workplace, so if you have a problem in the studios (or anywhere in the building) and need help, come to the studio technicians counter where someone can be with you quickly.
They can't give advice if you're feeling unwell, and they are not a counselling service, but if you or someone you're with gets a cut, falls over or anything happens that you feel you need help with, come and ask for a studio technician straight away, and give them as much information as you can.
