At Blackdog Recording Studios, every type of project is considered of equal importance. Preparation is the key, so consultation with us is highly encouraged. Blackdog can prepare a customized estimate based on the specific information given prior to your session date. All quoted rates include the engineer, the use of the studio, and any equipment utilized.
In the old days of analog recording, clients used to have to purchase their very expensive session master tapes, but nowadays, we store sonic information on relatively inexpensive hard drives and recordable media.
We will automatically backup your session and garuntee it's contents for 30 days after your last session, but for ultimate safekeeping, this process should be doubled so that both the studio and the client have a matching copy.
For larger projects, we recommend purchasing your own external USB3 hard drive for data storage. Backing up your work is an essential part of the recording experience and will be billed accordingly, however, backups are officially our client's property.
Blackdog Recording Studios are not responsible for any loss or damage to your files.
