Our adjacent B-room of approximately 40m2 can be used for smaller rehearsals, or used for FOH when having larger stage setups in Studio A. The room is also acoustically well treated and we have 90 dB of isolation between room A and B, so you can also do separate work here during a production. There is a direct Cat-5e connection to studio A for digital consoles.
