All recordings were made with student engineers using the 32-track digital facilities located in the Music Department.

Soundtraks is a student club that teaches the techniques involved in recording live and studio sessions.  

As a support facility to the New Trier Music Department, a complete 32-track digital recording studio and MIDI-Lab is available for students to use.  All jazz ensembles, bands, choirs, and orchestras regularly record using these facilities.  

At New Trier, albums and concert videotapes are regularly produced, and independent multimedia projects are often undertaken by students.  

All of the New Trier Jazz Ensembles have been included on albums, tapes, or CDs annually produced by Sountraks since 1970.  

Excerpts of audio recordings by New Trier's instrumental and vocal ensembles can be downloaded at the
New Trier Music Department web site.
