FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do the studios come with an engineer?
The studios can be booked with an “in house” engineer, or with an assistant. If clients provide their own engineers, a WAX LTD Studios assistant is required to facilitate set-up and provide basic support. If you need an "in house" engineer please check our SERVICES / STAFF section for available engineers.
May I bring my own computer / laptop?
Yes, all of our rooms are conveniently plug and play via a Thunderbolt 2 connection. We also have adapters for Thunderbolt 3/USB C. You will be able to connect to our displays, audio interfaces and trackball controllers via a single connection. Please make sure to download and install the latest UAD interface Driver (Download link here) prior to your session.
*Please make sure to let us know if you're planning on bringing your computer or using ours prior to your session.
Is the studio backing up my sessions?
Clients are responsible for backing up their files before the end of their session.
(We recommend backing up on at least two drives).
For longer bookings, the studio will keep a copy of the client's files until the end of the booking period.
