Terms and Conditions
We endeavour to ensure all audio quotes given are accurate at the time of question, however should a session structure change and the artist requires more time, standard hourly rates will apply. Notice will be given to the artist should this occur. Should there be additional time remaining at the end of a session that has already been paid for, this will go towards covering post-production costs.
For services amounting to less than $600, payment is required upfront within 24 hours of the session booking. All services amounting to a value higher than this will require a 50% deposit to be paid prior to the session and 50% prior to final files being delivered. Payment can be made via our EFTPOS facility at the studio, or as a bank transfer or card payment relating to an invoice.
+ Booking Fee
A non-refundable booking deposit is required to book your date which will contribute to the overall quoted price. For services amounting to less than $600, payment is required upfront within 24 hours of the session booking. All services amounting to a value higher than this will require a 50% deposit to be paid prior to the session and 50% prior to final files being delivered. Any cancellations or alterations to session times must be done 24 hours prior.
+ Session Musicians
Session musicians are available for hire either via the studio or externally. Any session musicians hired for the purpose of the project will be at the session musicians own hourly rate and will invoice for their time separately.
+ File Delivery & Back-Up
All audio files are delivered via a Dropbox link following payment and completion of post-production work. All work not requiring post-production can be released at the end of the session via a Dropbox link or to a client's USB or hard drive (formatted for Mac) following payment. It is advised that clients keep their own back-up files for all projects as Ladd Studios accepts no responsibility for lost or damaged files. Should additional file transfers be required in the future, this will be charged at the standard hourly rates.
+ Portfolio Samples
The client agrees to allow Ladd Studios to showcase any and all work created in the course of a project as part of our portfolio for the purpose of advertising and display. Ladd Studios acknowledges the confidential nature of projects and agrees to only display the final project work once the product has been publicly announced and launched by the client.
