terms & conditions
The Client agrees to pay a minimum 10% booking fee in advance of the session booking, as agreed & payable at time of booking. 72 hours notice is required for cancellation & refund.
The Client shall pay half the remaining balance on arrival to the studio premises (non-refundable) and half on agreement of the final mix discs being prepared.
If the Client is not attending the studio, the full fee must be received by the day before the work starts.
The Studio offers an 8 hour day from 10am allowing 30 mins for lunch breaks to be taken.
The Client agrees to assist, at their will, in the mixing of the final production.
The final product is to be a copy of the recordings in stereo interleaved 2-track format at 44.1kHz and in 16 bit resolution ready for broadcast. Master audio files can be made available at £10 per song. Master session maps are not made available.
1 copy of the final CD will be copied & given to each member of the project on the final day or .WAV file transferred via secure internet file transfer.
Neither party can be held responsible if the recordings take longer than expected and all reasonable effort has been made to maximise studio time. In the event of further studio time being required to complete the project, then a new or amended contract must be agreed upon and entered into at that stage.
The Studio owns the Intellectual Property on the raw audio files, edited files and mastered files; including (without limitation) every part of the process of recording, mixing and mastering until full and final payment has been made by The Client, as agreed by both parties. If any recordings were to be published, listened to by the public, used at events/presentations, or any marketing and promotion of The Client's material, without prior consent from The Studio, then this would be a material breach of contract and court proceedings could follow.
The Client agrees that whilst on the studio premises they will conduct themselves in an orderly manner.
The Client agrees to not smoke on the premises in accordance with national laws.
The Client agrees to not consume food or drink near/over the main studio equipment.
The Client agrees to respect & keep the washing & cooking facilities clean & tidy at all times.
Any damage to equipment owned by either party as a result of misuse, negligence or breach of the above clause will be paid for in full, upon receipt of an 'old for new' quote.
If the accommodation is taken advantage of, then The Client will agree to the separate 'Terms & Conditions' of that arrangement & agree to leave the 'Chill-zone, Entrance Area & Bunk-Room' in the condition they found it.
The Client agrees to not make any intrusion on the other farm areas, to respect the normal practice of the working farm during the day & to not use car horns or make any other unnecessary excessive noise outside the studio between the hours of 11pm and 7am.
This Agreement may be terminated as follows:
This General Recording Contract will terminate when the duties described above have been completed.
If any part of this Agreement is held unenforceable for any reason, the remaining portion of this Agreement shall remain in full force & effect and shall be carried out in a manner which is consistent with the intentions of the parties hereto.
If any legal action or proceeding, including any arbitration of disputes rising out of or relating to, this General Recording Contract, is brought by either party, the prevailing party as determined by the Court or Arbitrator, shall be entitled to receive from the non-prevailing party, in addition to any other relief that may be granted, reasonable lawyers’ fees, costs & expenses incurred in the action or proceedings by the prevailing party.
