If a specific person is important to you, please make this clear when booking.
Although we go to considerable lengths to avoid downtime during a session, the highly technological nature of modern recording and our human nature to get sick sometimes means that it is impossible to safeguard 100%.
In the event of any downtime during your session due to a technical fault with the studio, or in the unlikely event that a session needs to be postponed due to staff sickness, the sole remedy will be to make up the lost time without charge for the studio or any engineer included in the original cost of the hire.
We will of course notify you as soon as possible if we need to rearrange a session.
We will not be liable for any expenses incurred by you, (i.e. travel expenses) in the event of us having to rearrange a session for any reason.
Copyright in all materials generated at a session will reside with April Media Productions Ltd. until such time as all costs of hire/consumables/extras relating to that session are paid for in full with cleared funds.
