Need recording equipment?
Very cool resources provided by the NYPL for those living in the city:
Yes, you can borrow these items for 1-3 months at a time, for free: iPad Pro, USB microphone, headphones, ring light, midi keyboard.
While we're on the subject of NYPL, as working actors in New York, do you utilize the archive of Theater Recordings at the Lincoln Center branch of the public library? Most Broadway shows post 1970s are available for viewing.
