User Information

Thank you for your interest in CEMI. Please fill out the CEMI access request form at and have your teacher write to to confirm approval.

We generally give students access to just one studio each term. Please feel free to write to to describe the technical needs of your project (number of audio channels, types of software/plugins, etc.) so we can propose which studio might be the best fit; or if you prefer, ask your teacher to propose the studio most appropriate for your project(s) in the approval e-mail.

Also, all CEMI studio users must join the listserv, which you can use to request (or release) studio hours, to request features/updates in the studios, and to report any problems you encounter; it is also the way we report studio outages or known problems to our user base. You can join by using any on-campus computer (or any computer anywhere that’s logged into the UNT VPN) to connect to and follow the instructions under “Subscribing to cemi-users.”
