How to book a studio

* The booking system address is: http://bokning.elektronmusikstudion.se

* Use Safari or Internet Explorer, then type in your user name and password.

* Go to ”Boka Lokal” in the left-hand menu, where there is a calendar to fill in. Make sure you have selected the correct studio (under the heading ”Resurs”) and month (”välj månad”). Find the date that you want. Double-click on the starting time that you want, fill in the starting time (starttid) and end time (sluttid) and click save (”spara”).  

Please note that you are not allowed to override someone elses booking.

* IMPORTANT – The studio booking must be confirmed. The booking confirmation can only be done inside the EMS premises. When you get to the studio, confirm your studio by logging in to the booking system and click on your booking (Bekräfta=confirm). It should then change colour to dark green when confirmed.

If you do not confirm your booking it will automatically be cancelled and someone else is free to book the studio instead

To be able to use the studios you need to have attended an EMS course. Guest composers and members of FST (Föreningen Svenska Tonsättare) automatically have access to the studios, though an introduction to the studio you want to work in may be necessary.

To work in the studios it is advisable to be familiar with the Pro Tools, Logic X, Reaper or Ableton Live software.
