Frequently asked questions

Here are some answers to common questions about our rehearsal studios. Something else on your mind? Visit our support hub or reach out via Live Chat. 

What if something breaks or I need a spare?


Spares in every location! We carry lots of spares in our sites, just in case you need any further equipment or something has a fault.  You'll also find lots of spare cables and mics in our rehearsal studios, so you don't have to contact us (unless you'd like to and have a great joke you wanna share).

If something is missing from the room or you need something from the spares cupboard, hit us up on Live Chat via the website, where we will be more than happy to help.

How do I book a session?


Our live booking calendar shows the latest availability of studios. You can book anywhere from a year in advance right up until a few minutes beforehand. Some studios are popular, so we recommend securing your slot in advance.

TIP: Book enough time to set-up and get comfortable with the gear, and set-up/pack-down anything you’ve brought along. 

How do I book OpenLIVE?


Where recording is available, you will see the OpenLIVE logo on the studio image on the booking calendar.  When you select Book room, you will be prompted to add OpenLIVE to the session. Once you click Yes, OpenLIVE will be added to the session.

Once you exit the payment process, you’ll receive emails confirming your scheduled recording from OpenLIVE. If you don’t receive your confirmation, please drop us a note via live chat or email and we'll check for you.

What do I need to bring to my rehearsal session?


On top of the equipment listed on the booking page, we provide XLR (mic) and jack (instrument) cables where possible and carry plenty of spares on site. 

We do not provide AUX cables to connect your phone although we do tend to keep some in spares in case you need to borrow one!

Drums

All of our drum kits include stands, kick pedal and a snare. Please note, in the UK our Classic and Premium studios do not come equipped with Cymbals, therefore you will need to bring your own or hire them separately. You will need to bring your own sticks.
