|ABOUT THE SERVICES
This is a Professional Audio Suite specializing in transferring and Audio Restoration of previously recorded material. It is not a "studio" in the conventional sense in that there is no live "studio" recording done, excepting the odd, small, voice-over and some very specialized remote "live" recording.
Charges are based on TIME for most normal studio functions, that is, mixing, equalizing, transferring, conventional processing and so-on, and are billed at an hourly rate with a 1/2 hour minimum applied to any job. They are incremental in 1/2 hour segments to the nearest 1/2 hour, that is, an hour and 10 minutes will be charged at 1 hour, an hour and 20 minutes will be charged at 1-1/2 hours. It all comes out in the wash!
Package rates on some functions are given and in those cases, it is presumed that the "package" includes essentially similar materials and tasks, allowing for one "set-up" applied to the whole package.
Some set rates take into account the fact that the process involves mostly machine time and some economies are to be had accordingly. Often, this is dependant upon the client supplying a properly prepared DAT or other source material. If you are unsure about how to do this, please ask for our brochures on Audio Restoration and CDr production or read details elsewhere on this web site. In any event, ask!
Rates are quoted and payable in USA dollars, unless otherwise arranged. A 50% progress payment is required before beginning work, (according to an agreed estimate) and the balance is payable on completion of work, prior to, or on delivery, unless otherwise previously arranged.
Clients agree to assume all risks and responsibility for copyright issues.
Generally, copyright legislation allows an individual to make or to have made, copies for his/her own use, provided the originals are owned by the individual. Material recorded prior to 1951 *may* be in the public domain and thus be free from any such restrictions. It is always recommended that reference to competent legal counsel be made where there is any concern about these issues.
All work is guaranteed to be as good as the technology allows, considering the original source material provided by the client. Total liability, including any possible consequential damages, is strictly limited to a re-do of the work supplied, if unsatisfactory for technical reasons, or at our option, a refund of monies paid by the client, less any transportation expenses paid on his behalf. Client materials will be handled with the greatest of care, but no liability will be assumed for loss or damage to original materials supplied by the client. The client assumes full responsibility for determining that material is suitable for the purpose intended. Ask about shipping methods and arrangements BEFORE shipping anything!
