  • Can I pay with a card over the phone, or pay with someone elses card to book?
    Unfortunately, we cannot accept card payments over the phone for your security. If your using a card, you can securely enter that information on our website at enviyon.com Due to increased fraud in today's world, our financial institution is very particular about the payments we accept.

  • How many people can I bring to the studio?

Additional guests after the limit is reached will be charged at an additional rate of $10 per person used as a cleanup fee.. See the limits below.

Studio D: 8 People max. Studio E: 8 People max. Studio F: 10 People max.
  • Can we come in and only record for 30 minutes if we dont need a whole hour?
    There is a 1 hour minimum to reserve a spot at Enviyon. We take pride in our work. We don't want you to leave with unmixed, or bad material. We need at least 1 hour to produce excellent mixes, and provide you with what we have to offer.
  • How do I request or book a specific Engineer?
    Our staff members work on specific schedules. If you want to work with certain engineers, you should check their schedules at https://www.enviyon.com/staff and book them based on the room, date, and times they have available.
  • Can I bring my own Engineer / Rent out your studios?
    Unfortunately, We do not rent out our rooms or allow non-Enviyon employees to operate our equipment. Our company is employee based, and our room are contracted out to employed members only. You are free to bring your team member with you for suggestive purposes, but our engineers must be the operator of the boards and all equipment.
  • Do you allow smoking in the studio? Vapes?
    Due to the significant damage smoke does to studio equipment, including the extensive costs and maintenence associated with cleaning up behind smokers, we dont allow smoking in our rooms. You are permitted to step outside during your session if you'd like to take a smoke break. Exception: If you are 21+ and booking room F, You may use the indoor designated smoking area. (excluding cigarettes and any cigars) Vapes are allowed in the studio, but NOT in the booth since the oil in vapes destroy the microphones.
  • If I'm late to my session, can you just push my time back or start me later?
    Your time begins, not when you arrive, but the time the booking was originally reserved for. There are other sessions booked before and after yours, so we would not be able to move any times earlier or later as to not inconvienence other clients, just like we would not inconvience you because someone was late before your session. Be on time to get all of the time you reserved.
  • If I don't show up to my reservation, can I just move my deposit to a different day?
    If you cancel your reservation 24 hours in advance by phone or email, we'll apply your deposit as a credit for another date. If you don't show up, the deposit will still be paid to the Engineer who waited for you at the time of your scheduled reservation because thats how they are paid. This means that we cannot reschedule a booking that has already been paid out to the Engineer. You would need to go online and make another deposit for another date and time.
  • When do I get my music after my session?
    The days of leaving the studio without a copy of your music are over. Not only will you leave with your music in hand, but we will email your songs at your request at no extra charge on the same day. That's the Enviyon Way.
  • Do you guys charge money to make corrections to my songs I recorded with you?
    If the corrections you require are "coach based errors" that could have been corrected during the time you paid for, then you will not be charged. (These are usually mixing issues such as "I hear some pops or clicks in my song", "the song is too loud/quiet overall", etc.) Just Go here... https://www.enviyon.com/fixorsendmysong If you want changes such as a Engineer to remix it again, or anything that was not paid for during the recording session, you will also go to https://www.enviyon.com/fixorsendmysong (These are usually requests to add beat edits, vocal effects, create an open verse, show mix, clean version, etc.). The time you reserve is what you're paying for. That is how we are able to keep our rates so affordable for you guys while having some killer, top of the line equipment and amazing staff members. This means that we do not typically go back into songs after the session is over & "mix them down more" unless there is a Engineer-based error, or the corrections are being paid for. During the time you reserve, the Enviyon staff member you are working with is all yours to utilize for whatever service you need. But they are going to follow your direction because you're the one paying for the time. For example, if you have a 1 hour session & you spend 55 minutes recording in the booth, then your engineer is realistically going to have less than 5 minutes to mix. Leaving just 5 minutes for an engineer to mix is not always going to yield you the best results for your art. Take our word for it, don't rush the process. So make sure you A.) book the proper amount of time you need, B.) allow the engineer enough time to mix your songs to your liking. THE MORE TIME YOU GIVE US TO MIX, THE HAPPIER YOU WILL BE WITH THE FINAL PRODUCT, WE GUARANTEE IT!
  • I don't like how my music sounds. Can I get a refund?
    No, like most professional studios, we do not issue refunds for services that have already occurred. But your satisfaction is still incredibly important to us. If you aren't initially satisfied, we will try to work with you and ensure that you feel you've gotten your money's worth, whatever the issue may be. Just submit your request to have us look at it here! https://www.enviyon.com/fix-or-send-my-songs
  • If I recorded a song, and I didn't like the Engineer, can I get a free redo with the Engineer I want?
    Unfortunately, once a reservation/session is completed, the Engineer who recorded you is credited for that session. In the future, you should book your preferred Engineer by visiting https://www.enviyon.com and viewing our engineer calendar, which will show you the dates, times, and studios that our Engineers will be working in. Or you can get this info by calling to check their work schedule so you can book with them. If your song was mixed poorly, you may submit the "Fix My Song" form stating specific issues, and those errors will be corrected by a staff member at no extra charge to you.
  • I recorded in your studio a while back, do you still have my files?
    Yes! All music, vocals, and tracks are kept in our secured hard drives and can be accessed by one of our members when you book your next session. Just be sure you let us know what files you will be working on so we can have them ready when you come in. If your loooking for files to be sent, then use this link: "Send My Files Form"
  • Can your team produce clean edits, show mixes (only chorus, no vocals), and extend beats for other features that may want to get on a song I did?
    YES, YES, and YES! We can clean any song as long as we have the instrumental as well. Show mixes without main vocals must have the session files, or at least the instrumental if you cant get the sessions. If you're just using the complete songs, just make sure you know how long you need the entire show mix to be. (For example: 8 minutes of on stage time). Extending a beat is no problem, just tell us how long you want it. Check out https://www.enviyon.com/fixorsendmysong
