Recording Terms and Conditions
When booking a recording session at Red Eye Recording Studios 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 Red Eye Recording Studios team. We reserve the right to refuse and reschedule any confirmed bookings. Bookings are made by the following methods only. redeyerecordingstudios.com (Online using our BOOKING Scheduling App) or Phone: 408-275-6167
Email:firstname.lastname@example.org and are not valid until confirmed and deposit paid.
A deposit is required and can be made while booking online with us. If you do not have a credit card you can arrange to drop off a cash deposit for a future appointment. We also take CASHAPP and/or VENMO which you can manually call us to arrange this payment method and avoid any online fees associated with credit card purchases. This deposit is non-refundable or transferable. The remainder of the studio bill should be paid in full at the START OF YOUR SESSION. Refusal to pay for services rendered may lead to prosecution. No Call/No shows that have paid the deposit will result in loss of monies 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 the time that has been used. Red Eye Recording Studios management reserves the right to implement these payment terms where applicable. All session files are deleted from our hard drives 180 days after session completion unless otherwise specified. Please bring a backup storage device if you require your multi-tracks.
48 hours notice is required for the cancellation of a session; this includes weekends and bank holidays. If a session is canceled with less than 48 hours notice, full payment will be required to book further sessions. Regardless of how much deposit we collected you would still owe us for HALF the studio session price since we lost that time. No Call/No shows that have paid the deposit will result in loss of monies and studio time, non-refundable.
We have FREE parking for clients (2 vehicles max) on site. We are not responsible for any items in your car but we have cameras that are recording the parking lot and can watch it in real-time while you are in session with us.
