Studio Policy


BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
No Walk-Ins Allowed

BE ON TIME
Arrive 10 minutes before your appointment

CLOCK STARTS ON SCHEDULE
Your studio time is the time booked, not your arrival time. Example, you book a 3pm to 5pm session and show up at 3:30. The studio was reserved at 3pm so thats the start time on the clock. Its not fair to push someone else’s time back because you were late.

15 MINUTE CLOSE OUT (ENDING SESSION)
No vocal recording or starting a new song 15 minutes prior to the session’s end. Recording time includes uploading instrumentals, burning and emailing music. You need to be ready to walk out the door at the end of your session and not running into another clients time slot. You are paying for studio time, not just 60 minutes behind the microphone.

RUNNING OVER YOUR TIME
If you are not finished with your song and your session is ending, you can get your session files saved to a USB device or data disk to finish on a later appointment. If the engineer has a gap in the schedule and you are able to extend time, there will be an additional fee. This choice is solely up to the engineer.
* 15 minutes or under (Studio A $15 / Studio B & C $10)
* 15 minutes or over rolls over to another hour.

(How engineers evaluate time: If you book 1 hour, want to squeeze in 2 songs and take 45 minutes to record, your next song will realistically take 45 minutes to record. Even if it’s a “quick freestyle” it still is against policy to record vocals in the last 15 minutes of the session. Your options are to spend more time mixing the first song you recorded, burn it on cd and leave, or pay for more time if the slot is available.)

ADDITIONAL FEES
Same day, early bird, and late night sessions are available for an additional “inconvenience fee”. Same day sessions are an additional $10 per hour. Contact us about early and late night appointment.

NO SMOKING IN THE ENTIRE BUILDING
Failure to comply will get you banned the studio.

BE RESPECTFUL
Respect the staff at Radio Ready Recording Studios because we have the right to refuse your business in the future if our experience was unpleasant with you or your guest. Also, be respectful to the other people in the building, because your behavior reflects us when you are coming and going from our place of business. We get reports on activity in the building and parking lot, if you or your group is causing a problem, you can get banned from the building.

QUIET ON THE SET
Mixing requires detailed listening, we can't do our job if you are talking over the music. It's not a library but if you need to hold a conversion, the lounge is perfect for that; not the control room.

NO HORSEPLAY
There is a time and place for everything and the studio is no place for horseplay.

HOW TO BOOK A SESSION
The best way to book a session is to prepay online. You can also pay for future time in bulk and receive a discount. Same day appointments are not preferred but are possible for an additional fee.

STUDIO HOURS ARE ONLY BOOKED WITH PAYMENTS
The only way your appointment is locked in, is if you have prepaid in full. We will only soft reserve your appointment on a call in. If the schedule gets booked for that day, a PAYING CUSTOMER has the right to BUY OUT a slot, up to 24 hours in advance. The person that has failed to pay in advance will have to reschedule to another open time or day.

WAYS TO PAY
You can PAY BY CASH in person or you can PAY BY CREDIT CARD online, using paypal. To request an invoice for payment, you can call, text, or email 757radio@gmail.com

CANCELLATION POLICY
All cancellations should be done as soon as possible . Cancel 24 hours before your session to reschedule. No Call/No Show You Lose Your Time AND Any Deposit or Payment For That Session. (STUDIO HAS BEEN BOOKED WHETHER YOU SHOW OR NOT!). Cancel same day and lose 50 percent of your time on the books to compensate for our lost as it doesn't give us enough time to fix the schedule. We don't do 30 minute sessions so failure to reschedule a 1 hour session will result in a complete lost.
