How much advance notice do I need to book your studio?
Please contact us 48 hours before your planned first booking to ensure 100% availability.
What if I need the studio sooner?
We accept bookings without a rush fee.
Does your studio record insert video?
Yes. We provide a green-screen background, LED lighting, cellphone stands and a 1080HD streaming camera at your disposal as well as an internet connected MacBook Pro for your streams, Zoom or Skype needs.
Does your studio have live streaming capability?
Yes. All of your content can be live-streamed any platform you wish to configure with OBS and your settings on our laptop.
How does your studio handle remote guests?
We provide connections to our board for your cellphone via BlueTooth adapter or from Zoom and Skype via our studio laptop. You can use any cloud based service, app or form of communication to bring your remote guests into our studio such as Sqaudcast, OBS or any Mac-based software.
What if I bring my own laptop or devices?
You can use those too. We have no restrictions on using your own gear and we'll set it up to the best of our ability, but it's generally your responsibility to ensure that your own devices work properly.
Can I bring food or beverage into the studio?
Food is prohibited. We discourage podcasters and their guests from bringing beverages into the studio since one spill can damage equipment that you'll then have to pay to replace or result in a cleaning fee of $99 if you spill a non-water beverage. However, because of the pandemic we do allow water and beverages to be brought into the studio because use of a common area water fountain is discouraged. If your video has a water bottle or Starbucks cup, we do not provide make-up sessions.
What audio format do you record in? Do you record individual tracks?
Every recording is provided in its original WAV file format for best quality. We also record everything in multi-track which gives you individual files for each microphone or audio source that you use.
What if I am in a recording and need more time?
All bookings are considered "on demand." That means we keep working until you're finished. Overtime charges once a recording goes 5 minutes past the hour to add another half-hour to your bill, if there is studio availability to extend your time. You will be informed in advance if your time slot has a "hard stop."
If I sign a weekly or monthly recording contract, do I have to record each week or month?
No, we let you use your bookings whenever you want inside the contracted time, whether that is twice in a week or every single day based on non-priority availability and 48-hours notice or a 1-time rush fee of $25. Contracts are for a 12 month period.
Will my podcast be recorded at the same time each day of the week or month?
Contract podcasters get scheduling priority and a fixed time to record and stream your shows on a first-signed, first served basis.
How many episodes of my podcast can I record in one hour?
One hour sessions may be used to record multiple episodes of your podcast. You can use your recording time in any form or fashion you want.
What is our pandemic status?
We are open! The new studio is open for solo podcasters who want the best sound quality for their remote interviews and a high-quality video streaming environment with green screen capabilities.
Covid19 mitigation steps include each podcaster is required to wear a mask to enter the facility. We are providing each customer their own windscreen and limiting capacity to the podcaster and the engineer for setup only.
