Five people maximum, including the lead booker, per session, for all recording (production) studios across the UK, EU and US. 

What if something breaks or I need a spare?

Spares in every location! We carry lots of spares in our sites, just in case you need any further equipment or something has a fault.  You'll also find lots of spare cables and mics in our rehearsal studios if needed.

Something missing from the room or you need an item from the Spares cupboard? Hit us up on Live Chat via the website or on WhatsApp. We will be more than happy to help.

What do I need to prepare for my session?

To make the most of your session there are a few things you'll need to bring and do.

What to bring

  • A laptop (essential)
  • A USB-C cable to connect your computer to the Focusrite interface (essential)
  • The external monitor connects via HDMI or VGA. If you don't have one of these ports on your computer, you'll need to bring an adapter (optional)


  • You must download the Focusrite software before your session otherwise you won't be able to connect, and it'll take up valuable time
  • Our system is super simple to use, but some experience is useful. Get to know your DAW before your session — Ableton, Logic, Pro Tools.

If you have any further questions our team is always happy to help.
