WaterFall Studio Policies
A 50% non-refundable cash deposit is required at least 7 days prior to your
session to confirm. There is a
15-hour minimum on mixing sessions.
The person to talk to when booking your session and making your deposit is
WaterFall Records owner and Chief Engineer.
All block rate sessions are to be paid in full prior to the session in order to
receive the discounted rate.
Balance payment is due in full after
Money orders or good old-fashioned U.S. cash are welcome.
We currently don't accept credit cards.
We are on the clock from the designated session time so try to be on time.
Bringing friends along is OK;
as long as you realize sometimes that makes things take a little longer,
especially during mixing.
The client will pay any damages to any WaterFall Records/WaterFall Recording
Studio property during booked time caused by the client or 'guest' of the
The Studio is not responsible for masters, back-up files, tapes, or anything
left at WaterFall Records.
Children (unless involved in the session), babies, and/or pets are not allowed
in the studio.
No doing drugs or smoking inside studio.
You are responsible for your session so try to be prepared.
After the final mix session, everybody usually wants a copy. Go ahead and enjoy
it that night and the next day then put it away. Get away from the music for a
while, or you won't be able to hear clearly when mastering. Everybody should
take a 2 or 3 day break (or longer) before the mastering session to rest his or
her ears. Listen to groups you like, and try to get a feel for their sound and
their final mixes/mastering.
Since your bill will be paid prior to leaving, you should take your product
with you. Neither WaterFall Recording Studio nor DummyDog Productions are
responsible for storing your medium. If you request medium storage, there is a
$10.00 per month storage fee.
Before the mixdown session, play the rough CD (with or without the band there)
and make notes on every song. Is it similar in sound to groups you like? Try to
pinpoint the differences. Need more 'bottom' on the kick? Less reverb on the
vocal? Vocals too loud or soft? More edge on the bass? Move the lead guitar
more to the left or right? Before you start the mixdown, we'll go over your
notes and try to get the sound you want.
When you're mixing down, you want a finished product that's as good as any
Listen to the whole song, not just your part.
