The Klein Digital Music Studio (Rockwell 312D) is a Lab that houses the Digital Music Ensemble, a group that performs exclusively with computers and state-of-the-art electronic music instruments and controllers. The instruments the students perform with are as follows: the Haken Continuum Finger Board, the Theremin; wind controllers such as the Akai EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument), the MDT (Morrison Digital Trumpet), and the EigenHarp Pico; percussion controllers such as the ZenDrum, the Roland Hand-Sonic, the Akai MPD26, the MalletKat digital marimba; the Korg Electribe and the AKAI MPC 5000 music workstations; electronic keyboards such as the Moog Voyager analog synthesizer and the Roland V-Synth digital synthesizer, and also synth modules such as the Yamaha Vl70-m and the Korg Radias.
A Kyma Pacarana music workstation along with two Macintosh PowerBooks and three iMacs with software for sound synthesis, music sequencing and real time interactive sampling and looping expand the sonic pallet available to the ensemble.
For mixing and sound playback the Digital Music Ensemble uses a Prosonus StudioLive 24-channel mixer, 5 Roland KC-350 floor monitors, 4 Mackie SMR450 speakers and a Mackie SRM1801 subwoofer.
