Secret Sound takes no responsibility for materials left on the premises and strongly encourages clients to make backups of their projects to take with them. In the old days it was reels of tape - $75 for a reel of 1" tape that would hold 16 tracks for 30 minutes. Then it was ADATs - $45 got you 40 minutes of storage on 24 tracks. Now, storage has gotten unbelievably cheap. We charge $5/song, one time only, for the backups we keep here. Your data is backed up to two hard drives as well as data DVD when the project is finished.
At least 24 hours notice is required if a session needs to be cancelled., however the sooner the better. A $50 cancellation fee is required for sessions cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.
