The studio is 70m2 of which 60m2 are available (the rest is used for Surnatural Orchestra backline storing). The ceiling height is 5m maximum, 4m50 minimum under the 3 beams. The room is acoustically treated and relatively well insulated. The acoustics are airy and rather dull. It’s not as isolated as a recording studio, you can hear street noise in ambient microphones, hear sirens, etc. However, it benefits from daylight thanks to two skylights of 4m2 each.

Technical welcome

By default, no technical reception is provided. You receive the basic instructions at the time of rental and you are independent on the installation, proper operation and storage of equipment and space.
If you would like a technical welcome by a manager, we offer a fixed price of €150 excluding tax (total cost including contributions) for installation and start of the session and then for storage at the end of the session. This rate applies for 1 or more consecutive days only. For any other request, let’s talk about it!
