What is provided in the studios?
Each studio has a powerful RCF PA
They are fitted with dimmable lights and a fan to circulate air.
We supply SM58’s, mic cables and stands.
Cellphone & WIFI
As the studios used to be fridges, reception can be iffy. We’ve found most bands enjoy the focus that accompanies mandatory flight mode…
You’re welcome to use our wifi respectfully (please avoid loading it down with uberbytes of down/uploads).
Feel free to ask a staff member for the password to the wifi network.
Smoking is prohibited in the studios.
Please use the ashtrays provided in the garden in helping keep Magnet clean and green.
To keep bleed between studios to a minimum please keep both doors closed on your studio during setup and rehearsal time.
We have a number of storage bays available at the studio.
Storage bays are approximately 1m D x 1.4 m W x 2.4m H with a shelf at 1.2m off ground level.
The bays are kept secure with a user supplied padlock (there’s a Bunnings down the road if you need).
The storage bay Billing cycle begins on the 15th of each month.
We require 2 weeks notice if you intend to vacate your storage bay.
Please note management reserves the right to grant storage bay access outside of studio hours.
