A session is defined as the block of time booked for recording services. Sessions begin billing at the time the client booked it for, whether the client is present or not, and continues until the final load out. Consecutive studio day rate rentals (not hourly) are mandatory if gear or mixes are to be left set up overnight. 1452 Foundry accepts payment by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, check or cash. Payment is due in full at the end of the session. All mixes, CD-Rs, hard drives, master tapes, etc. shall remain the property of 1452 Foundry LLC until all invoices are paid in full.

A $150 per day deposit is required in advance at time of booking. All deposits are paid online by Visa, MasterCard or Discover. Deposits are subject to forfeiture if session(s) are cancelled with less than one month’s notice. Exceptions will be made for serious illness or death, but will not be made for lack of rehearsal time or lack of funds.

Hourly rates are dependent upon availability. Hourly sessions are subject to rescheduling and may be bumped if a full day session is booked for the same day.

Drives for sessions can be specially ordered with enough advance notice. Please let us know in advance of your special requests so we can best accommodate your needs.


We are not legally or financially responsible for items brought into or left on the premises. It is recommended that clients obtain insurance to protect against possible damage expense or loss of article(s) of value left on the premises.

This information is intended to educate 1452 Foundry’s clients about the nature of digital media and also to establish legal boundaries regarding their digital data.

Make multiple backups of your data. Unless there are at least two copies of the data somewhere it is not safe. Three copies is preferred. This is YOUR responsibility! Backup copies of sessions in the digital realm should be made daily during the course of a session and taken home with the artist or producer at night. Post-session backups can be made onto external Firewire or USB hard drives, stored in an online data storage bank or burned to DVD-R or CD-R. There is no certainty that a CD-R or DVD-R will hold data for the long term or that a stored hard drive will play back after sitting for any amount of time so back up your data to newer media as time goes on. We highly recommend purchasing quality, name brand hard drives.
