STUDIO TERMS & CONDITIONS
Last Updated: February 18, 2020
When booking a recording session at Major Theory you are entering into a contract by which you are agreeing unconditionally on behalf of the artist/band to abide by the studio’s terms and conditions as detailed below.
Booking a recording session
Session bookings, times and dates are subject to availability and approval from a member of the Major Theory’s team. Major Theory studios reserve the right to refuse and reschedule any confirmed bookings. Bookings are made by the following methods only: https://majortheorystudio.as.me/ Not valid until confirmed and deposit paid.
Payment can be made with cash or credit/debit card. It is the responsibility of the artist to cover the cost of each session in full either in advance or on the day of the session. A 50% deposit is required to confirm most bookings. This deposit is non refundable or transferable. The remainder of the studio bill should be paid in full on the first day of your session. Late payment will lead to an additional fee of $25, and refusal to pay may lead to prosecution. No Call/No shows that have paid deposit will result in loss of money and studio time, non refundable.
Failure to produce full payment will result in the studio withholding session time, all copies of recordings, masters or session files until all fees have been paid and funds have cleared. You must pay for the full amount of hours you book; it’s not our responsibility to manage your studio time. If the recording session is broken up over a period of time (8hrs+), payment will be required either in advance or in installments to cover time that has been used. Major Theory management reserves the right to implement these payment terms where applicable. All session files are deleted from Major Theory’s hard drives 14 days after session completion unless otherwise specified. Please bring a backup storage device if you require your multi-tracks.
24 hours notice is required for the cancellation of a session; this includes weekends and bank holidays. If a session is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, full payment will be required to book further sessions. No Call/No shows that have paid deposit will result in loss of money and studio time, non refundable. Cancellations as a result of adverse weather conditions such as snow will be rescheduled.
Breakages and damages to studio equipment
Any damage caused to studio equipment due to misuse and abuse will be charged to the artist/band/individual. Refusal to pay for breakages will lead to exclusion and prosecution. If an item of equipment is damaged or missing at the start of your session please report it to the session technician/engineer immediately.
