Digital Music Research

The Digital Music Research studio is a working laboratory for graduate students to engage in high level research into audio and MIDI over ethernet, music information retrieval, acoustics and psychoacoustics, peer-to-peer digital synthesis, embedded chipset design, and low-latency Linux. The studio is equipped with seven state of the art computers, all of which run commercial and open-source software packages for research into audio. Three iMac terminals run the latest version of OS X, and four Dell terminals run the latest Ubuntu Studio Linux distribution. Various types of hardware controllers line the desks and a network printer capable of printing large score sizes is available for department usage. The Digital Music Research Studio also serves as Peabody’s base of operations for the Combined Laboratory for Auditory Interdisciplinary Studies (CLAIR), under the direction of Dr. Geoffrey Wright.
