Hustle Firm Recording Studio – Studio Policies, Terms & Conditions
The following policies, terms and conditions were created to insure the satisfaction of both the clients and our staff in order to maintain a professional environment that is clean, and comfortable.
A 50% deposit is required in advance of your session in order to guarantee the time slot requested by the artist. If another artist requests the same time slot and make the deposit prior to the previous artist, we will lock down the space for the artist who makes the deposit first. Deposits can be made via PayPal, Cash, Cashapp or on our website.
There is a 2-hour minimum. Sessions are booked at the rates stated by the studio unless there is a prior negotiation between the studio and the artist or a special. Rates are subject to change.
You are responsible of the remaining balance due to the studio and should come prepared to make that payment at the beginning of your session. No media will be issued to the client until full payment is made to the studio. Clients will be charged a $20.00 service fee if full payment is not made in full by the end of their session.
Cancellations after 24 hours prior to the booked session will forfeit the deposit. The deposit is non-refundable; we can reschedule your appointment if cancel 24 hours prior to the artist scheduled time.
New clients can schedule a studio tour prior to their session in order to become more familiar with our facilities and equipment.
START/END AND SESSION TIMES
The session clock begins at the scheduled time previously agreed on. If you arrive early and the studio can accommodate an early start, then the session clock will begin at that time. 10 - 15 minutes before your session is over, the engineer will begin bouncing and sending the recorded tracks. When your session time is over, you are required to leave the studio so the engineer can prepare for the next scheduled session.
The artist session files are stored on the studio computer for 30 days. If you would like to save you session files on an external hard drive during your session please consult with the engineer. There is a $30 fee to send you your session files to you via the web after your scheduled time.
If the studio experiences any technical problems during a recording session, the artists will not be billed for the time lost. The studio will reschedule another session with the artist or will extend the artist time to make sure they do not lose their session time.
Session media will only be released when full payment for the session is received. Raw Pro Tools sessions can be issued to artists but they won’t content any editing or mixing made by the engineer. Hustle Firm Studios keep the mechanical rights of all projects recorded at our studios. Session materials left beyond 30 days due to nonpayment become the property of Hustle Firm Entertainment, LLC. Hustle Firm Studios is not responsible for any unrecoverable data.
