I can’t find the entrance to the studio, where is it?

 

Enter through the main entrance and proceed to the elevator down the hall on your left or the staircase just past it. When arriving at the basement, turn left and walk to the end of the hallway. The studio is the last door on your right.

If you enter through the rear door from the parking lot, go up the outdoor staircase and enter the back door. Continue straight down the hall and go through a second door. The stairs will be immediately to your right and the elevator just past them. Go down the stairs. When arriving at the basement, turn left and walk to the end of the hallway. The studio is the last door on your right.

How do I turn the PA on/off?

 

The PA is hooked up to (1) power switch located directly below the mixer in each studio.

What equipment do you provide for rehearsals?

 

We provide the PA system, vocal mics, guitar amps, bass amp, and a drum kit. Hi-hat and ride cymbals are included with the drum kit. Clients must bring their own guitars, keyboards, drumsticks and effect pedals.

Does the hourly fee include setup and breakdown time?

 

Yes, however everything is ready to go and if you come prepared, you should be able to set up within 10 mins or less. The mixer runs through an anti-feedback processor to minimize the feedback issues, so getting levels set should be as easy as pulling up a fader and go.

If I get there early and there is no one using the studio, can I go in?

 

If there is no one booked before or after you, you are allowed a grace period of 15 MINUTES before and 15 MINUTES after your scheduled session. If you go in sooner or leave the studio later than the grace period allows for your scheduled session, you will be charged for an additional hour of rehearsal time.

If there is no one booked after me can I extend our session?

 

Yes, absolutely. If there is no one scheduled after and you would like to extend, please call us to verify the extension. You will be required to pay for the additional extended time at the conclusion of the session.
