Now for the boring bit! We have a long list of satisfied returning clients, & we will work as hard as possible to leave you totally happy. We are reasonable people. But we still have to set out our terms & conditions.
“You” “Your” = you the client (including your personnel & associates e.g. band members, record label, manager, PR etc.)
“We” “Our” “Us” “The Company” = Fat As Funk. Part of the Alternative Blueprint group.
By placing an order you agree to the following:
Fat As Funk – Terms & conditions
We will only use your information to provide our services to you. We will never sell your details to third parties.
We will keep your music private. We use various levels of high-end protection to keep your information & assets safe. We are total believers in online freedom & privacy!
We assume that all music you send us to be mixed or mastered is your own original work, or that you have obtained the required clearances for samples etc. We do not check this however. You agree to indemnify & hold us harmless against any copyright infringement if it arises (e.g. if you slip in an uncleared sample etc.)
Full payment must be made in advance. We will not start work until payment is received in full. We occasionally offer regular large clients a 30 day payment window, but this is at our discretion. We have to work with you for a while first before we can offer this. If we do offer this & you pay late, we are within our rights to request payment up front again next time.
We retain the right to refuse any job for any reason.
We try to get all jobs completed within a timeframe of 2-5 business days (mastering) or 4-7 business days (mixing) although we do not guarantee this. If you are in a rush then please contact us for availability first & to confirm your expected completion date. We will absolutely do our best to fit your deadline.
We really want you to be happy with our services, so we offer 2 free revisions of our mastering work (we usually get it right first time though!). Further free revisions are at our discretion. Normally extra mastering revisions are charged a nominal fee of £5 per song. We encourage you to try our free mastering demo if you are a new client.
We offer 3 free revisions of our mixing (or mix+mastering). Further mixing revisions are charged at £20 per hour, billed in 15 minute increments.
Please work with us to achieve your goal. For revisions please be specific e.g. “I’d like more sub bass” or “can you enhance the vocals a little more” etc. We are also artists so can work with interpretive requests such as “Can you give the track a similar vibe to a black & white Zen painting of a river in the mist” (genuine request!) but please understand that our interpretation may differ to yours.
If after mastering you decide to change your mix, then a nominal fee of £5+£1 per minute of audio is charged per song for revisions on the new mix.
If sending you a Redbook or DDP for replication we also supply you with a test CD. It is your responsibility to ensure this test disk plays back exactly how you want. Please supply us with your desired gaps & metadata if you are ordering a Redbook or DDP.
You acknowledge and accept that it is incumbent upon You to ensure that the Pre Production Master meets with your full satisfaction before proceeding to mass production commercial exploitation of the recording thereon.
If your Redbook disk is damaged in the post then we will replace it once for free.
You agree that our maximum liability for any loss or damage directly or indirectly resulting from our services shall be limited to the total price You paid to us for the job.
We shall not be liable to You or Your personnel for any indirect or consequential loss or damage including economic loss including without limitation any loss of profits or goodwill arising from any fault in the studio or delay or any act or omission of the Company its servants or agents.
We use the most aggressive anti-virus, internet safety & firewall available on all our computers, & follow safe internet practices all the time but we still cannot guarantee your safety from viruses etc.
This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
