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.

Elektronmusikstudion, EMS, has 7 studios with the following setups:

Studio 1: ProTools 12 HDX and a 14.1 Genelec sound system, arranged in a 9-channel array at listening level
and a 5-channel array in the ceiling plus a subwoofer.
