Cancellation Policy

Our cancellation policy varies from client to client but in order to keep the studio booked at all times we have a standard fee. You are required to contact us at least 48 hours prior to your session of cancellation for any reason and reschedule it. If you cancel after the 48 hour grace period and/or do not reschedule your cancelled session, you will be billed for 50% of the session time you had reserved according to the hourly or day rate. Cancellation of an entire work order will also be billed a 50% charge of the entire time booked if not notified within 48 hours. Rescheduling times and dates are subject to available session time slots.

FAQ’s

1. Are you looking for any interns, assistants or engineers? 

Currently at this time we are not looking for anyone. If something does open up it is usually an intern position. All the main engineers here come from an old school studio approach and we demand a lot of our interns. If you can hack it you will learn a lot from experienced guys and move up. Go ahead and send us your resume’ and we will keep it on file. There are always times when someone can’t make it or cancels and we need someone to fill in last minute. This could be your in so be ready.

2. Why don’t you have consoles? Are you in the box?

No, we are not in the box. We have SPL MixDream Summing Units in Studio A and B. The MixDream is a high-grade analog summing unit with sophisticated, active Class A/60V stages for analog summing in the quality of the best consoles. The units include 16 balanced inserts that allows for integrated analog hardware processing with individual and overall hard bypass relays. Channel adjustments and automation (level, pan etc.) remain controlled from the DAW so the user loses no digital efficiency.

3. How much does it cost to record? And how long will it take?

There is entirely too much to discuss here and there are too many variables involved for a FAQ. Contact us to discuss your project in detail. We generally require a four hour minimum booking. For more info email us at mail@parhelionrecordingstudios.com

4. Do you have safe and convenient parking?

Of course we do. We have a giant parking lot with a security camera that is checked on periodically.

5. Do you do any work on spec?

Unfortunately, the answer is No. We have been at this for quite a while. The quality of work & production we do can easily be heard on countless records. Our studio time is very in demand and we make sure we give every artist that comes in amazing value for their money.

With that said, we have a card hourly rate but we do do pricing for whole projects and can work with most budgets. Once we get your budget, we decide how many days of recording/mixing we can give you for your budget beforehand. This way everyone knows what they are getting into and everyone ends up happy in the end.
