The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum (RRHOFM) will design, create, and implement a virtual recording studio that will allow visitors to create their own version of a popular rock song or to record their own composition. The Museum will develop an interface that allows visitors to create recordings on guitar, bass, drums, or vocals. Project staff will select 10 to 20 songs from the history of rock that are simple enough for most visitors to play and develop instructional content on how to play each instrument and song. When the virtual recording studio opens, the project team will collect user data and visitor feedback and make improvements to the exhibit based on this information. The virtual recording studio will help visitors gain a deeper understanding how artists and producers create rock and pop music, and it will help them develop a visceral, personal connection with the music.
