Courses offered in the studio explore introductory and advanced concepts in sound design, synthesis concepts, sampling, recording, audio manipulation, surround and 3D audio, composition, mixing, and live performance techniques. The studio supports student and faculty performances of electronic music within the CCAC. All WVU music majors have access to the studio's X32 Compact digital mixer, speakers, MIDI controllers, keyboards, and wired and wireless microphones for live performance situations involving electronics within the CCAC.

The three workstations in the studio offer different workflows to suit a variety of creative interests and to enable students to develop independence and confidence in working with music software and hardware. The Mac studio station is setup with a 6.1 surround sound setup with Genelec studio monitors, and a multi-track recording setup.
