How do I book a session?

Our live booking calendar shows the latest availability of studios. You can book anywhere from a year in advance right up until a few minutes beforehand. Some studios are popular, so we recommend securing your slot in advance.

TIP: Book enough time to set-up and get comfortable with the gear, and set-up/pack-down anything you’ve brought along. 

Can I rent a rehearsal space for a full day?

To provide flexibility for all artists, Pirate doesn't offer day rates for rehearsal rooms. Rent rehearsal space by the hour for the required duration.

What do I need to bring to my rehearsal session?

Artists need to bring their own instruments, except for drums. We also have a limited number of keyboards available on request, but they are not guaranteed. 

Drummers must bring their own cymbals if they are rehearsing in Standard or Standard+ rehearsal studios. They also need to bring their own drumsticks to all of our practice studios.

Please check what cables you need for your rehearsal before arriving at the studios. In addition to the listed equipment, we provide XLR (mic) and jack (instrument) cables and carry spares on-site. AUX cables are not provided, but some are available in spares if needed.

Does the rehearsal studio come with a keyboard?

Due to issues with equipment damage, we no longer offer guaranteed keyboard hire. Keyboards and stands should be available in spares; message us on WhatsApp or Live Chat when you arrive at your session for access.

What if something breaks or I need a spare?

Spare equipment is available at every Pirate location, including instruments, cables, microphones, stands and other hardware.

If you need replacement equipment or something is missing, contact us on Live Chat via the website or WhatsApp for assistance. We will direct you to our spares cupboard quickly so that you can get on with your session.

Can I record my rehearsal session?

Record your rehearsal using OpenLIVE.

Look for the OpenLIVE logo when booking a session. When you click to book a compatible room, you’ll be asked whether you wish to proceed with OpenLIVE enabled. Click ‘yes’. After your session, you’ll be sent a link to the online editing app, allowing you to select your best moments. 

Please note that OpenLIVE is not yet available in all of Pirate’s rehearsal studios.

How do I book OpenLIVE?

Where recording is available, you will see the OpenLIVE logo on the studio image on the booking calendar. When you select Book room, you will be prompted to add OpenLIVE to the session. Once you click Yes, OpenLIVE will be added to the session.

Once you exit the payment process, you’ll receive emails confirming your scheduled recording from OpenLIVE. If you don’t receive your confirmation, please drop us a note via live chat or email and we'll check for you.

Can I livestream from the studio?

Pirate currently doesn’t offer any in-built technology to livestream a performance from our rehearsal studios. However, you are welcome to set up for livestreaming independently.

Are studio visits available?

Unfortunately, studio visits are not available. If you want to check out a space, book a single off-peak hour. Our hourly rate is kept low for this purpose. Alternatively, explore our 360° virtual tours for a detailed view.
