Studio equipment may not be scheduled in advance, but a hold may be placed on any piece of equipment.
How do I know what's available? The equipment tabs on the studio's website lead to detailed descriptions of the hardware and software in the studio. You can check equipment availability by viewing the record in MARQCAT
