Dry Hire Our Recording Studio
Whilst we love nothing more than being able to contribute and guide you through the process of gaining a perfect recording, many people have a lot of the skills and the desire to work on their own music. We appreciate that it’s no longer always the model that a recording is done end to end in one facility.
To that end, we do offer our facilities for hire to suitably qualified or experienced people.
Dry Hire Terms and Times:
Hire includes the full studio, including live room, control room, all microphones, leads and hardware, outboard gear and use of computer and interface.
You may wish to use your own computer or you can use our Apple Mac including software ( ProTools ) and hard drives.
The hire does not include an engineer or any amount of setup, although of course, we will be there to get you settled in. It is assumed that you know what you are doing. Please consider also booking the familiarisation training, if you’re unsure.
In any case please see our equipment list and ensure that we have what you need and you are comfortable using it.
- Two-hour training/familiarisation session (£50)
- Lock-in rate, so you don’t have to take down and set up again the next day. You must leave by midnight ( £30 per day )
Please Note You will need to book training and dry hire session separately if you want both. The Training is provided by Graeme who has separate availability to the studio.

Dry Hire - F.A.Q.
What equipment does this include?
Well in terms of what you're paying for, everything. The whole kit and caboodle ( See Equipment Specifics )
Although, if we feel you're not confident with specific delicate pieces of equipment, we might not allow you to use them unattended.
What experience do I need?
It's less about qualifications than experience. First and foremost we we want to protect our reputation and make sure that you and or your clients have a good time and get good results. We also want to look after our facilities and gear so that we can keep doing what we do.
What help does this include?
We're nice people. We want you to succeed, we'll help where we can - in person or over the phone.
If something goes wrong and it's our fault, we'll 100% refund and reschedule after doing our best to make it right.
If we were to hire out two or three days, would we need to tear down in the live room overnight?
If you book multiple days, you may wish to also book a 'lock-in' for the evening at a much reduced rate than we would normally book the studio for. You're welcome to use the studio for this time too ( Until Midnight )
Otherwise you might have to tear down everyday, yes. If nothing is in after you - we won't force you!
