Bookings are confirmed upon receipt of a deposit of 50% of the estimated cost of time, services and materials reserved. For bookings of two or more days, this 50% deposit must be received no later than 10 business days before the start date of the booking or the session may be subject to cancellation or rescheduling.

Minimum bookings are required of 1/2 hour for tape transfer, dubbing, editing, media backup or CD duplication sessions, 1 hour for remix, 2 track and listening sessions, and 3 hours for multitrack sessions. Studio billings will be based on hours reserved plus any additional time used. Time is billed in 1/2 hour segments.
