Got a Question?

Here are the questions we get asked the most, answered. Whatsapp is the best way to reach us if you still need help, or give us a call on 0333 241 9598.

How much does a recording studio cost?

Recording (production) studios are the same price throughout the week. A discounted day rate is available. Check availability and pricing by visiting the booking calendar.

How many people can use a recording studio at once?

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?

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.

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.
