Studio Policy


**** Studio policy must be signed upon arrival ****



Sound Wave Studios™ requires a 50% deposit to schedule a booking. The deposit can be payed in cash or debit/credit card via Paypal and the balance to be payed upon arival before the scheduled session begins.


This is a strict policy we adhere to. If you cannot do so recording/work will not commence until you can. You may go to a bank or atm to retrieve funds if needed but it will come out of the time you booked.





The session clock begins at the scheduled session start time that both parties agreed upon. If you are late for any reason, you will be charged from the scheduled session start time, with no exceptions. And – please call if you are going to be late.





You are responsible for all monies due to the studio and shall make payment to the studio as follows: cash, credit or debit card via paypal, money order or bank certified check. No personal checks are accepted, sorry. No media will be turned over to you until full payment is made for that day.


Upon completion of your recording project you will have the opportunity to hear the results within the studio. Short samples of the completed work will be played for your listening. No audio or data will be released without full payment agreed for studio and mixing time. 





Deposits are only refunded if client cancels the session booked following the conditions below:


  • Studio A

Sessions up to 4 hours require a 48 hour cancellation notice. For sessions over 4 hours, a 72 hour cancellation notice is required.



  • Studio B

Sessions up to 5 hours require a 48 hour cancellation notice. For sessions over 5 hours, a 72 hour cancellation notice is required.

If you leave something at the studio the staff will do their best to ensure that it’s stored safely. However, Sound Wave Studios™ cannot be held responsible in the event that your gear is damaged through un-willful occurrence (water damage, theft etc). By signing this you agree that Sound Wave Studios™ is not responsible for loss or damage to gear left behind due to such events.





If you or anyone in your party breaks or damages anything willfully or accidently you agree to pay for a new exact replacement for that damaged gear. If for some reason the gear that needs to be replaced is no longer available for purchase then you agree to replace it with that specific gear successor. This includes microphones, recording consoles, headphones, amps, or anything else in the studio.





  • No alcohol or smoking permitted on premises.

  • No food or beverages allowed near any equipment in the studio.

  • Behavior: Drugs or any illegal behavior is strictly prohibited anywhere on the premise.





Hours of operation for Sound Wave Studios™ are from 8 am to 2 am from Monday to Friday and 10 am to 12 am on Saturday. The studio is closed on Sundays and holidays – please call or email for details.





If the studio should suffer any failure due to forces of nature or otherwise, we agree to reschedule studio time with you at an agreeable time for both parties. If the recording system should fail during your session you will receive equivalent free time to make up for this.





The person responsible paying for studio time must sign an agreement and will be held responsible for the actions of all artists and guests he or she brings to any session. The client must show a legal ID with proof of age. If the client is under 18 years of age the client’s parent or legal guardian must read and sign this agreement and provide a legal ID, as well as additional proof of guardianship if last names are different, and will be held responsible for all actions and debts of the client.



These rules apply to everyone. There are absolutely no exceptions whatsoever. This ensures a healthy business relationship for you as a recording artist and for the studio as well.

Please feel free to contact Sound Wave Studios™ in advance of your session.
