Can I drop in on the day without booking?

No – you must book in first via our booking system here

What’s the longest time-slot I can book in for?

1.5 hours at the moment, but longer if there’s capacity on the day

Do I need to bring any equipment?

No, unless you want to bring your own instrument (other than guitar, keyboard or drum kit, which we have), we have all the production equipment on site.

Do I need any experience?

No – our staff can support you at whatever stage you’re at

Can I bring a friend?

As a rule, these are solo booking slots so we expect you to come unaccompanied. However, if you would like to come with a friend/s or a family member, please email to arrange this in advance.

Can I release my track once it’s are done?

Yes, you’ll be able to upload your track to the Sound Communities YouTube or create your own Spotify Playlist.
