If you would like to bring your project to Studio Silo, or if you are simply just curious about what we do and how we work, then please do get in touch. We always like to chat about new ideas. You can telephone Vinny our House Engineer directly on +354 7834976 or you can reach him by email:
We book by the day, and a day is typically nine hours in total with a one hour break in the middle for lunch. If we start at 9am we normally finish at 6pm, and so on. With this we are flexible within a few hours, but planning is good, and sleep is good for you! We do not provide accommodation, but we can recommend and help in arranging lodging for you and your crew at decent prices within our village.
For people coming to our Artist Residency, please note that Studio Silo is not part of the workshops that are available within the Residency Programme. Studio Silo must be booked separately, however Residency Artists are given a 10% discount.
In order to confirm a booking, a deposit of 50% of the total fee is to be paid beforehand, with the remainder to be paid upon completion of the session. For longer sessions this deposit can be reduced if need be.
If you need a rehearsal space before you record then that can be arranged in our concert hall at no extra cost.
And now for you analog heads… If you choose to use our wonderful tape recorders then we have a tape rental fee which means you don’t have to buy the expensive tape:
- 1/4 inch tape for stereo bouncing and mixing – 2750 ISK per reel
- 1 inch tape (for our 8-track and 16-track Otari machines) – 9000 ISK per reel
- 2 inch tape (for our 16-track Soundcraft machine) – 15000 ISK per reel
All tape is RTM SM900 for multitrack and SM911 for 1/4 inch. A reel lasts for approximately 30 minutes recording at the speed which our machines run at. In some cases people desire to take away the Stereo Master tape if mixing a project 100% analog, and in that case we charge 5500 ISK for selling the reel to you. Making safety and digital copies is strongly advised in this case.
