Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price for a recording studio in London?

Our rates for recording studio spaces in London start at £10.50 per hour for Lite, £12.60 per hour for Standard, £15.20 per hour for Pro and £20 per hour for Pro+. Discounts are available for longer bookings.

How to choose the best music studio?

Pirate offers four types of recording studios in London, catering to different needs and preferences.

The Lite recording studio is perfect for budget-conscious beginner producers working solo or collaborating with one other artist.

For those focused on music production and songwriting without vocal recording, the Standard studio provides advanced equipment and a comfortable space for one or two artists.

If your focus is on recording vocals and collaborations, especially in rap and beat creation, the Pro studio is tailored for you, accommodating up to three artists comfortably and featuring a curtained vocal booth. 

For extended sessions and advanced artists, the Pro+ studio is the ideal choice, offering all the features of the Pro Studio along with upgraded monitors and a 34" ultra-wide screen for enhanced production capabilities.

How many recording studios does Pirate have in London?

Pirate operates over 90 recording studios across 9 London areas: Wembley, Greenwich, Earlsfield, Croydon, Camden, Notting Hill, Tottenham, Dalston, and Hackney Wick.

Do you have a sound engineer or mastering engineer available?

Pirate does not provide on-site sound engineers or mastering services with our 24-hour self-service recording studios. However, you are welcome to bring your own engineer. For basic mastering, follow our step-by-step guide on how to master a song.

Can a beginner music producer use the studios?

Our studios are designed for plug-and-play simplicity. Anyone with a laptop can use our recording studios to start exploring music production.

How to start as a music producer?

Prepare for your first session using our guide on how to produce music. Private music production lessons are also available in London or online.

What studio is best for mixing?

Our Standard recording studio is a cost-effective option for producers seeking a mixing studio in London, equipped with professional-grade equipment. Check our guide on how to mix music for help getting started.

What studio is best for recording vocals?

For voice recording in London, our Pro recording studio is ideal, equipped with dedicated vocal booths to capture clean vocals.

What studio is best for recording a demo?

Choosing between Lite, Standard, Pro and Pro+ studios depends on your team size and vocal recording needs.
Pro and Pro+ studios, with dedicated vocal booths, are suitable for recording lyrics, while Standard studios work well for demos without vocals. Lite, with less advanced equipment and space, is better for solo and beginner demo creation.
