frequently asked questions
WHY DO YOU CALL YOURSELF STUDIO BE?
RCA Studio B is a music recording studio in Nashville, Tennessee built in 1956. Willie Nelson, Elvis Presley, and Dolly Parton all found a microphone there and changed music forever with their voice. At Studio Be we hope to do a similar thing. Discover the undiscovered. Give them a microphone. Let them change the world forever. We want you to BE what our world needs now.
I HAVE AN IDEA BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW TO MAKE IT INTO A PODCAST. DO YOU GUYS DO TEACHING OR COACHING?
At best we pontificate over a beer. There are awesome coaches for this. We recommend Sarah Werner.
I WANT TO RECORD SOME AUDIO WITH YOUR AWESOME EQUIPMENT, BUT I DON’T WANT TO RECORD A PODCAST. HOW DO I DO THAT?
You simply rent the studio. You can either use your laptop or rent our computer as well.

Super simple. $25/hr for the studio. Add $25/hr if you need our computer. Add $50 an hour if you need an engineer. Add $150/hr if you need post production mastering.
WHAT IS STUDIO BE LABS?
Studio Be doesn’t put our name behind just anything. All of our podcast are held to the highest standards.

Studio Be labs is where we incubate the next generation of podcasts. Eventually shows will graduate into full-fledged Studio Be shows.
