Creative Studio

Have you ever wanted to try podcasting, audio recording, or have just needed a quiet, semi-soundproof space to record your audio tracks? Mackay Regional Council Libraries now has you covered with our brand-new Creative Studio.

Located at the Gordon White Library, this space has been developed for creation and innovation, and is suitable for all types of audio recording and editing needs. We welcome all members of our community, 16 and over, to access and enjoy this space, as well as work together in collaboration to positively impact and influence our future.

Our Creative Studio is part of a bigger picture. We are working towards developing sustainable and scalable collaborative platforms to best support our community in their creative and innovative endeavours.

The Creative Studio has everything you need to get started in your recording journey, including:

  • Two Rode Microphones with Pop Filter
  • Headphones
  • RodeCaster Pro Production Studio Mixer
  • Audacity and Adobe Premiere Pro for multi-track audio editing
  • Free Library WiFi

Creative Studio sessions can be booked in two-hour blocks, during the Gordon White Library’s opening hours.

To ensure you get the most from your session, all Creative Studio users must complete the mandatory Creative Studio Induction.

Bookings are essential for Creative Studio Inductions, and open to all members of Mackay Regional Council Libraries aged 16 and over for community use.
