27 d Productions Studio Policy
This includes an engineer, the use of the studio facility and use of equipment (see attached list).
There are two methods of payment for work(s):
For project-based goals (fixed budget or contract work) the client is required to pay 50% of the projected ‘total’ studio cost in advance, with the remainder to be paid upon completion.
For indeterminate projects (non-deadline/ongoing recordings/productions), payment is required at the end of each session.
No master mixes will leave the premises until full payment is received.
All balances are payable to 27d Productions via cash or paypal.
The cancellation of a session is often inevitable. However, a ‘no show’ (no phone call/notice) will be charged for the time booked. If cancellation occurs from 1 to 3 days prior to the session, the client will be charged for 1/2 the session(s) value. If cancellation occurs 3 days (or more) in advance of session dates, the artist can re-book the session(s) without penalty, allowing the studio to re-book the (newly) available time with other clients. This is a policy based on courtesy and professionalism: please respect it.
27 d Productions also provides production services. This cost is included in the regular studio rate. The client may choose to hire outside the facility for production services, or may choose to self-produce their project. Self-production duties rest on the client. This can often result in unfocused time management which can inflate studio costs. In this case, the client is fully responsible for the production of his/her material as well as the hours accrued in the studio. For further details, please contact the 27d.
27 d Productions offers location recording services, including location sound recording, remote recording, and field recording. Rates above. Please contact for a quote regarding your needs.
Should you require session players, 27 d Productions can recommend competent musicians. At the end of the session, it is the client’s responsibility to pay the musicians. The studio owner is also a session player and can provide musical services on a variety of instruments. These services are provided free of charge on booked sessions.
All masters are supplied as both Wav’s and as finished Redbook CD. Work in progress can be auditioned via Dropbox and DDP files.
If the client wishes to have backups of their sessions and related tracks, they are required to pay for archiving services. This can be done in one of two ways: either the client can purchase a hard drive (firewire/USB. etc) for their project, or they can choose to have them archived to CD-R/DVD-R. The latter method may require sessions to be partitioned to hold all session data. 27 d Productions recommends the use of a hard drive – sessions are more efficiently and securely archived and may still be utilised for further recording should the client require. The cost of archiving varies. You can discuss this further with 27 d Productions for the option best suiting your needs. Archiving is recommended, but not required. Should the client decide against archiving their material, please be aware that session data will be permanently erased upon completion of the project. We are currently looking at online archiving.
