MIDI Beat Pad (CC ONLY)
Use the MIDI Beat Pad to take your music mixing and recording of beats and samples to the next level.
3D Printing and Design (CC/MH)
Go from concept to creation using MPL’s 3D printer! 3D printers work by laying thin lines of plastic building your design from the bottom up. Create your own designs using websites like Tinkercad.com or visit Thingiverse.com to discover already built files for printing. Bring in “.stl” files for our staff will preview. We’ll be able to let you know whether the file can be printed on our machines, about how long printing could take, and about how much plastic the printer estimates it will use. 3D print orders cost $.20/gram of the finished product but it never costs a dime to look! See Muncie Public Library’s 3D printers in action at both Connection Corner and idea studio (2nd Floor, Maring-Hunt Library)
