Recording – Outgoing Projects

If recording for more than one non-subsequent day, the appropriate number of DVDs or CDs will be required for the storage of material in progress. Do allow enough time during the session to check each final mix all the way through once it has been mastered to DAT or CD so that you are certain each track has been recorded to your satisfaction before you leave the studio. If there is a problem or you are unsatisfied with any aspect of the mix, you have a chance to re-record it while the desk and outboard gear is set up. BFS cannot accept responsibility for recorded media left on our computer or once it has left the studio. We recommend that all clients make backup copies of everything they do and store relevant disks and tapes appropriately.

BonaFideStudio reserves the right to refuse custom.

Obscene or violent behaviour will not be tolerated.

The use of illegal substances is strictly prohibited within BonaFideStudio premises

Sessions cut short due to a client’s wishes will be charged in full.

Any damage incurred to equipment (excepting reasonable wear and tear) will be investigated and invoiced for repair or replacement if appropriate.
