Studio time is billed in half-hour increments (one hour minimum). Prices are subject to change without notice. SoundTrax reserves the right to request full payment before start of work unless other arrangements have been made in advance. All billed charges are due on receipt for new clients, net 30 for established clients in good standing. A service charge of 1.5 % per month is assessed on past due accounts.
Payment for non-US clients is only in US dollars, net of any wire or currency conversion fees (including fees from SoundTrax’s bank). If needed, those fees will be added to the amount due from the client.
Session time is billable starting at the scheduled start time regardless of delays outside of SoundTrax’s control. If delay is caused by SoundTrax employee or SoundTrax-booked voice talent, session billing begins upon the later of: a) scheduled session start time or b) arrival of staff or SoundTrax-booked talent.
The client affirms that s/he is the rightful owner or assignee of material to be recorded or reproduced. SoundTrax is not responsible for copyright violations, talent or creative royalties, mechanical reproduction licenses, or any other liabilities for such material.
Hold policy. Client agrees to remain in close contact with SoundTrax when placing future session time on “hold.” In the event another party attempts to book the client’s held time, client agrees to respond to a telephone message from SoundTrax within 24 hours.
