Request for Use of 970West Studio

The 970West Studio has put in place several pandemic-related precautions to help give you, the user, safe opportunities to “hit Record.” You’ll likely notice some changes to the Studio in your next visit. Here are some of the ways we’re working to keep you safe: 
  • Limited equipment is available, due to proper quarantining and sanitization. Any gear that is used during a reservation is sanitized and then quarantined for 48 hours.
  • Only the Control Room is available for reservations at this time. This is to ensure adequate sanitation of gear and facilities.
  • The 970West Studio is only allowing one reservation per day.
  • There is a 4-person limit for all reservations. 
  • Masks are required per the state mandate except while recording vocals or on camera.
  • Technical assistance from studio staff is limited. This is to promote 6-feet social distancing guidelines.
