What things should I consider when booking studio time?

We will help when you make an enquiry but if you are solo/duo/trio, here are some things to think about:-

  • number of tracks you would like to record
  • do you know the songs backwards and upside down as this will significantly reduce time and have a better result overall
  • choice of songs
  • should you book by the hour or a full day

If a live band, here are some other things to think about:

  • number of tracks you would like to record
  • do you know the songs backwards and upside down as this will significantly reduce time and have a better result overall
  • choice of songs
  • does the venue have good acoustics
  • will you only want to record drums and build up tracks individually at your own leisure in our studio

How can I be sure that I am getting good quality?

Currently we have two professionals employed, both of whom are working musicians, who have technical skill, musicianship and reliability. We will work with you throughout, making sure that the sound created is what YOU are after. Once recording has finished, and at a later date, you will be presented with a CD to listen and make comments on the mix etc. if any at all. When you are happy with the results you will be given a final CD with on body printing if you wish.

How is Stocks Studios different?

How do we make a booking?

Contact us via the CONTACT page with your details and we will respond back to you. After discussion, and when you are ready to make a booking, we will send an email or letter for confirmation. This will state the details of your booking and the agreed fee. If making a block booking of 16 hours or over we ask that you pay a booking deposit of 20%. Any payment requested from you will be supported by a Sales Receipt.

What if I want to cancel my booking?

Unfortunately, we cannot return booking deposits but we can re-schedule for another time that suits you better.

How much will it cost?

Each project we take on on will be bespoke to you so prices will vary. When we have all of your ideas down and what requirements you need a price will be given which you will find very competitive.

Should I be worried about anything?

No need to worry about anything. On the day we will help you relax and lose your inhibitions. Refreshments are available also. You can bring someone along with you for support – infact we insist you bring a parent or guardian if under 16 years of age. At anytime, you may contact us about any concerns you may have. We will be pleased to help.
