Hard Drives:
Phase One recommends that our clients supply or purchase a quality external hard drive prior to their booking date. All session work will be backed up to this drive. Phase One can supply professional hard drives for clients that do not have their own. We strongly recommend clients have a second hard drive on hand as a back up for their data (2 in total). This double backup method is the only secure method of saving your session data should something go seriously wrong once you leave the studio. These two drives should be kept in separate locations. It is studio policy to regularly erase our in house drives to make room for new sessions. Phase One may keep a backup of your session for a limited time but we cannot guarantee the integrity of the data due to a variety of reasons. Archiving and backup is ultimately the responsibility of our client and the safest as well.



Day Rates:
When a "day" is booked at Phase One, the client has use of the studio for a 10 hour period. A day booking will hold the studio for that 24-hours ensuring that it will be yours exclusively and your setups will be left in place. If you decide to have a lunch break, only one hour shall be granted where the client will not be billed. However, if the engineering staff is still working during your lunch break it is still considered a billable hour. Overtime hours will be billed at our normal hourly rate on top of your day rate unless specified otherwise.

Payment Terms:
Phase One Audio Group accepts payments in the form of cash, Visa, Mastercard, and Interac for recording costs. A 50% deposit is required in order to confirm any dates. Studio bookings for which no deposit has been received by Phase One shall be subject to change or cancellation should management so decide without notice to client. The remainder of the balance is due once the sessions are complete. All open accounts must be settled prior to release of any tapes, masters, mixdown references or otherwise by Phase One to the client.

Phase One must receive notice of any cancellations no later than 72 hours in advance. If notice is not received by Phase One, the client shall be liable for the cost of the time booked. Client's deposit as stated above may be applied by Phase One in partial satisfaction of such liability. The full amount of unused time booked will be charged to the client irrespective of client's; failure to arrive for a session on time, in the event that the client must leave the session early, or if the session is completed before the booked time has expired.

Clients assume all risks associated with storing any and all sound recordings, video recordings, or equipment of any kind or nature on the premises of Phase One Audio Group. Phase One shall be held harmless from any and all damage that might occur to said articles for any reason. In any event, Phase One liability shall be limited to the replacement cost of an unrecorded tape of comparable value.
