GENERAL QUESTIONS

 

How do I book a session?

Simply give us a ring on 02075 802088 or alternatively email at bookings@sohosonic.com! We can then discuss what you would like to record and a time to book you in!

 

Where exactly are you located?

We’re located at Golderbrock House, 15/19 Great Titchfield Street, London, W1W 8AZ. We are located roughly half way down Great Titchfield Street.


Oxford Circus tube station and shops are a 3 minute walk from us, and there are many bus routes that stop at Oxford Street. If you need any information on parking - let us know!

 

What are your studio times?

We are available for recording and mixing sessions every day and night as we have a team of engineers and producers that can be available whenever you’d like to book your session.

 

I’m at work during the day but are you able to book a session in the evening or at weekends?

Yes we can, you can book evening and weekend sessions when it’s best for you, as we have a team that are flexible and available to work with you at the time you want.
We offer discount 2-hour recording slots on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, so check out our T’N’T Evening Special page for more information.

 

How far in advance do I need to book?

Ideally a minimum of 2 weeks in advance is best as we get booked up quickly, however if an urgent session is needed we will try our best to fit you into our busy schedule!

 

How do I make a payment?

You can make a payment with cash, cheque, bank transfer or PayPal (however there is a 5% charge when paying through PayPal).
We do ask for a 50% upfront payment to secure a session slot, as this is locked just for you so no other client can use it.

 

What should I bring to my session?

You can bring anything you like (within reason!). Depending on what you plan to record, you can bring your own instruments, cymbals and amps. However, our studio is equipped with a drum kit, guitars (acoustic, classical, electric, bass) and amplifiers, as well as a wide range of microphones and recording equipment. See Facilities for more details on the range of equipment we have.

 

How much is it going to cost?

At Soho Sonic, we don’t like to put a price on what we record without having a talk with you about your project and ideally listening to any material you have beforehand.  In some circumstances i.e you would like to record an album with us, we would like to have a one on one consultation/chat with you prior to making any studio bookings to get a better understanding of what you want to achieve and to make sure you’re happy!
To do this, contact us on the above telephone number/email address.

If you’re a company looking for Voice Over and Mixing prices, contact 02075 802088.

 

I really want to record, but I only have a small budget – can you help?

We strive to work with and help you and so on these occasions we are keen to invite you for a discussion about your work, have a listen to material you have & possibly help you out with a discount. It really depends on what you intend to record!

 

What is the T’N’T offer?

The T’N’T offer is two 2-hour evening slots, one on Tuesday and one on Thursday, for a discount price starting at either 6 or 8pm. There are only two slots available each week so make sure you book in advance to avoid missing out!

 

Do you do gift packages?

Yes we do! We offer several good value gift packages – take a look at the Gift Packages for more information on what we have to offer.

 

I have bought a Gift Package, what happens now?

We will send you a voucher for the gift package via email, which you can print out and present. If you have received a voucher, give us a ring to book a date for your Gift Package!

Any gift package voucher is to be used within 3 months of purchase.

 

What happens if I need to cancel a session?

If you need to reschedule or postpone your session, we can change this for you without any extra costs. However, if you need to cancel your session, unfortunately your 50% deposit will be non-refundable.

 

Are engineers/producers there to help me with my session?

Every step of the recording/mixing session is booked is with one of our engineers/producers to help you every step of the recording session.
