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

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.
