The Western Sound studio is for rent

It takes an awesome studio to make awesome podcasts.

So, we’ve built one of the best in the greater LA area. And now, you can get that same top-of-the-line sound for your podcast and audio production.

The Western Sound studio in historic downtown Los Angeles is available for hourly, half-day and day-long rentals.

  • Regular hours (9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.) are $100/hour with a dedicated engineer.
  • Evenings and weekends available at $125-150 / hour.
  • Each rental includes two all-day parking validations at the 213 S. Spring St. garage. Additional validations are $9/each.
  • Sessions start promptly at the slotted time — please arrive a little early. There is a 5-minute grace period if your session runs long, but after that, you’ll be billed for an additional hour.
  • You pay when you reserve — reservations must be cancelled 48-hours in advance of your session start time for refunds.

We offer BIG DISCOUNTS for independent podcasters, so if you’re an indy, please send an email to studio@western-sound.com for a discount code.
