How does it work? How to book?

Basically, you must only book online. After you successfully book with payment (via paynow/paylah), you get a pincode for the door. On the day of your booking, you enter the studio with the pincode and use the studio. The electricity will turn on, together with the aircon, etc.  No staff will be there to assist. However, the studio is designed in such a way that it is very friendly and all “plugged-in” easy to use system. You will be given videos to watch how to go about using the studio.

How do i know got slot or not?

Basically, just attempt to book online. If it allows you to book, it means got slot.

What if i need to extend the booking?

You can call us, there are 2 numbers provided. One number is for day time (for admin) the other is for midnight (tech support line number will be provided when you make a booking). Please call as soon as you need to extend. Because the timer will kick in and end the booking, and electricity will be cut off accordingly to your booking.

Can I visit your place first?

Yes you can. Whatsapp us and tell us in advanced when you are coming down. We will arrange a viewing for you. There’s no one there.

Is the place 24/7?

Yes, it is. But only upon booking or appointment. No one is there.

Food and drinks allowed in the studio?

STRICTLY not allowed… we apologize.

How big is your space?

about 1000 sq ft. You can fit in about 50 pax standing as audience (for events), and up to 10 musicians on stage even.
Literally you can run around.

How many pax can I bring into the studio for casual jamming?

Maximum 10 pax (including audience and players). If it exceeds more 10 pax, add $5 per pax.

Can i do soft booking?

Unfortunately no. Booking is confirmed only upon full payment.

Can i book like 2.5 hours? or 1.5 hours?

No, its only by per hour.

Do you have any monthly package sort of thing?

Unforuntately no.

Can I do “filming”? Like MV etc.

If it is the causal using your iphone taking videos, no issues. If you are doing it officially (professionally), like using a DSR with tripod and lights etc, there is a surcharge of $10 per hour extra.

Can we adjust the lights? Like dim it, or turn some on and some off,etc.

Unfortunately no, the house lights are fixed.

Can I do “recording”?

Yes you can. However, everything is limited to the mixer. And you will really need to be an audio sound engineer to go about it. There is no one there to assist you.
You need to bring a SD card for the tascam model 24 mixer. And read the manual to learn how to use it, because there are too many configurations for recording to explain in layman terms.

Do you do professional recording? I want to record vocal

No, we don’t. Our recording is suited more for LIVE recording. Our studio is not 100% soundproof like those vocal booths.

Can I do live streaming?

Yes you can. No extra surcharge. However we do not have any additional equipments for live streaming. You have to use your own phone/camera and setup. We don’t provide assistant as well. There is no wifi there as well, however most of the bands use their mobile hotspot and it was very smooth.

Can I use my own mic?

Yes, pls do. There are about 8 free channels left, which you can use the provided XLR cables and plug in.

Are the drums mic-up?

Yes, however, because every band comes in and setup their own configuration. It’s likely the drum mics and cables may not be setup, and if you require them, you will need to set them up accordingly yourself.

Do you provided cables?

Yes, but mostly XLR and 1/4″ cables. Any sort of “special” cables, that connects your phone to the mixer, we wouldn’t have.

Can I play music from my phone to the mixer?

Yes you can. Use blue booth. There is one specific channel on the mixer that says “for phone”. Pair your phone to the mixer via blue tooth, and it works.

Can I come earlier to setup?

Yes, you can come earlier by 15mins, the lights and electricity will usually turn on just 10 mins before your booking.

Can I leave my things there first, and we go and eat?

Yes, you can, at the waiting area, but at your own risk though.

What happens when my booking ends? Will there be lights still?

Yes, if there’s no booking after you, we usually give you extra 10mins, before the electricity cuts off. But the main lights will still remain ON for the next 15-20mins to allow you to pack up.

Do you have a smaller room?

No, only 1 ultra big hall, which is the play by ear studio.

Can I do self practise there on the drums?

Yes, it works the same way, you have to book the studio at $38 per hour. It will be super costly though.

Do you have in ear monitoring system there?

No, but we have personal mons for every instrumentalist, with dedicated knobs for each to hear exactly what they want to hear of others. It works great.

But can I install my own in ear monitoring system there?

Very difficult. It will require a lof of re-patching on the mixer, which part of the mixer is already “glued” and hardwired, and cannot be removed.

Are we able to remove the drums or the speakers etc?

Unfortunately no… nothing can be shifted. The monitors can be tilted to face whatever direction you need, that’s fine. The whole keyboard assembly cannot be removed, they are hardwired. The drum set has to be there as well. Of course the drummer can always re-configure the drumset to his preference, that’s alright.

Where can I smoke? Is there toilet?

Toilet is just outside the studio within the building. Smoking is prohibited in the whole building, however most of them smoke along the staircase and so far the management of the building seems to be alright with it (for now).

After we finish the jamming, should we turn off the lights and aircon?

Its very kind of you 🙂 but no worries, the studio is fully automated. Everything will turn off by itself when you leave.

Do you do Events Booking?

Yes we do, Events booking is a different rates, Please whatsapp 92766737
