Recording Studios in Melbourne FAQ
Which Melbourne districts have the best recording studios?
Studios are plentiful in the centre of the city. Start your search among the streets near the West Gate Freeway in South Melbourne. Head north through Fitzroy for more options, and most are within an easy drive from High Street. Further out of town, you will find excellent recording studios in the suburbs such as Eltham, Nunawading, and Epping for those who may want to avoid downtown traffic.
How much does it cost to hire a recording studio in Melbourne?
With recording studios, you really do get what you pay for. While you can find options within the $50 to $100 range, you may not be getting the best experience for your money. If a cheap studio is what you need, you will find some solid options available, including in your local library. The Melbourne library offers a recording studio for hire on a limited basis. However, if you plan a more extensive session, for a demo or LP, you can expect to pay $199 per hour or around $300 for a half-day and up to $500 for a full-day hire with an engineer. Some studios do offer packages that can provide good value depending on your needs. Remember that extra equipment and instruments will still be charged extra.
What equipment should a recording studio have?
When hiring a recording studio, it is best to understand what you might need because studios in Melbourne generally offer the bare minimum of equipment and staff. In Melbourne, most mid and upper range studios seem to offer hire that includes a fee for an engineer and some basic post-production such as mixing, mastering, and file delivery. The studio itself should come equipped with some basic mics and a mixing board. Pianos, drum kits, and upgraded audio equipment are usually rentable for flat rates.
