Downtime caused by RLM supplied software/hardware issues will not be billed and may be made up at the end of the session (if available), or credited toward a future session.  

Downtime caused by Client hardware/software issues is NOT reimbursable, (this includes connectivity issues between your gear and our gear).

The engineer will break for 10 minutes every 2 hours to alleviate ear fatigue.  This time is part of the billed recording session.

Clients are free to break whenever they please, but this time is still part of the billed session.

 

OVER/UNDER BOOKING: (Finishing early/needing more time)

Studio time is billed in half hour increments.  Additional studio time at the end of a session is dependent on scheduling and is not guaranteed.
