Audio services

If you have worked with others studios, you know BackBeat's rate structure is unique within the industry. Rather than charging for the actual time in the studio, we charge one flat rate per song. This allows you to know exactly what you will be spending up-front and allows us to get the best recordings possible! 

Our sound quality speaks for itself, check out some samples of our work.

Refund Policies

Refund Policy:

BackBeat Sound Design does not offer refunds for services rendered. Musical creativity is subjective with no set “right” or “wrong” way of performing sound recording and related services. Great attention and care is given to each an every project. If the Artist is unhappy with the product provided, they may request certain changes to the project and BackBeat will be happy to adjust the finished product until the Artist is satisfied. However, refunds will not be offered.

 

Cancellation/No-Show Policy:

When an Artist cancels a recording project or recording session on short notice, that reserved studio time generally cannot be re-booked. To change or cancel recording sessions, please provide notice at least 48 hours before the scheduled start of that session. In the event that a recording session is cancelled without 48 hours advanced notice, or the customer does not appear within 15 minutes of a scheduled recording session, BackBeat Sound Design reserves the right to charge a $30 cancelled session fee. In the event that a contracted recording project is cancelled without 48 hours advanced notice, BackBeat Sound Design reserves the right to charge 20% of the agreed upon rate for that recording project.
