Ridwa Yakob knew what libraries had: books.

 

Then she saw the Teen Tech Center at the Minneapolis Central Library. This digital playground, which opened in 2013, has rows of new computers, iPads, the latest video equipment and even its own soundproof recording studio.

 

“Growing up, I used to be super into reading. That’s what I thought libraries were for,” said Yakob, 18, of Minneapolis. Now she’s a member of the Teen Tech Squad at the library, helping her peers with all sorts of high-tech resources, learning as she goes. “It gives me access to tools I don’t have at home.”

 

Shhhhhhh. You may not know it, but libraries have quietly become community tech hubs where the digital tools go far beyond computer terminals with free Internet.

 

Across the metro area, their offerings are expanding as libraries help patrons tinker with 3-D printers, e-readers and social media. A growing catalog of e-books and e-magazines, combined with other online tools, extend resources far beyond the library walls.

The Legendary Muscle Shoals Sound : NPR | Recording | Scoop.it

In an obscure northwest corner of Alabama, a little-known piece of music history is up for sale. The Muscle Shoals Sound Studio was a recording mecca for rhythm and blues, rock and pop artists in the '60s and '70s.

In 1969, four local session players known as the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section decided to open up their own recording studio. David Hood, the group's bass guitarist and studio co-founder, says the studio's name was a joke of sorts.

ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – When Charles Thomas tells his friends he's in the studio working on his latest release, they don't expect to hear its being recorded at the library.
Inner Recess's insight:

This is a beautiful thing - a place where people can express their creativity, learn the craft of recording and read some books. Love it!

Samantha's curator insight, September 11, 2014 2:31 PM

This article talks about what microphones are best to use when recording with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod. The list was put together by Jeff Geerling with the goal of helping people just beginning with audio. This article is very informative and it splits up into categories. Some of the categories are recording for concerts, interviews, and if you need a mobile microphone. The article include a video testing the audio of all the mice listed as well as where to purchase the mic and how much it costs. Overall this was a very informative and creditable article.
