There are likely other sessions happening in the complex. Please be polite, you never know who you may interact with in the hallway.

 

Booking

 

A 50% deposit (which will be applied toward the cost of your session) is required to schedule and secure your sessions at the Studio. This deposit is non-refundable. To reschedule your session at no additional cost, Room 2 Studios requires a minimum of 3 days. This minimum time frame is necessary for both parties to adjust their schedule. Note, your existing deposit will be applied to your new booking.

Changes and/or cancellations require at least a THREE-day notice. If you do not notify us within three days, meaning 72 hours prior to your booking, we will still reschedule but with an additional late fee of $65. If you cancel less than 3 days prior to your session then you will lose 50% of the ENTIRE SESSION and your deposit is non-refundable. If you cancel within 24 hours, you will lose 100% of your ENTIRE PLANNED SESSION and you will be charged for the full session! This is at a loss to you. You will not be able to recover your deposit and you will not be able to reschedule. Please keep this in mind.

Billing for the session at our established hourly rate starts from the beginning of your scheduled appointment, not from the time you show up (if later). We have a 2-hour minimum policy. You are welcome to arrive 15 minutes before the session appointment without being charged for the time. This “free” time can be used for setting up your instruments, warming up your vocals and/or getting yourself ready for the session. The billable session will start at your scheduled time and may include set-up. Setting up is usually very quick, totaling to 10 minutes or so. We do our best to setup everything before the session begins. The more we know about your session, the better we can prepare.

 

Mixing and mastering is not charged hourly. If you would like your music mixed and/or mastered please contact us or use the booking service on the website.

 

Payments

 

Payments MUST be caught up at the end of each visit. Scratch, rough mixes, or other audio or session files WILL NOT be released until payment is made in full. A 10% monthly late fee will be applied on any remaining balance that goes unpaid past the due date.

 

We accept most credit and debit cards. We also accept PayPal, Apple Pay, Venmo, Cashapp, Cash, and Cryptocurrency. ​

 

In the event that Studio time, be covered by net payments, rates can still increase at the discretion of the Studio manager or owner. Typically, the rates of Studio usage (and services provided) will double based on longer net payment terms.

 

In the event that more time is required than what was booked originally, you will be billed at $50/hr IF that time is available for extension. If there is an upcoming session, time will not be granted. Engineers that are booked for more than 10 hours will be billed for 'time and a half' at their 11th and 12th hour and will be billed at double time thereafter per California law.

​​

Once deposits are received, your session time is locked and can commence at its scheduled time and date. Remainder of bill will be charged within the last hour of your session on the card or from the account used to book the session. If you would like for us to charge a different card or account, or to pay in another form, please let us know when you arrive to accommodate your needs.

 

File Management

 

Room 2 Studios will hold your project for 30 days after the last time the project was worked on. If you think you might want to return to the project after more than 7 days, it is the Client’s responsibility to request a copy of the session/project within this time period. Although we do not intentionally erase any old projects, we cannot be held responsible for storing your project beyond 7 days.

 

It is recommended that the Client request a link to download your project to your personal computer or hard drive. If your work is accidentally lost to circumstances beyond our control within 7 days of your last visit on that specific project, we will replace the work lost by crediting you back the cost of the Studio time you used to create the project.

 

As the Client, it is your responsibility to secure permission to use any copyrighted material in your project. We do not take any responsibility for any violation of copyright laws by you or by your guests. We keep your project private. We will not post your songs or give them away (whether partial or complete) without your permission. We want to be very careful to preserve the excitement of your future release.

 

If a third party is paying for your session, it is highly encouraged that you sign a contract with the third party which outlines, in advance, who has access to your project in its partial and complete states. If we are not informed to the contrary, we will assume the third party paying for the session has all rights to all of the mixes and session material that you worked on at Room 2 Studios.
