  • We encourage clients to schedule a consultation with an engineer about your project. Regular hourly rates apply - 30 minute minimum charge.

Archival of mastered projects

  • For a fee of $25, we will back up the mastered version of client project. This is a choice you make at the end of the session. We back up the mastered version on DVD data discs.
    This is very important : The person, label, company,  paying for the mastering of the project is the ONLY person that can request additional masters, make any changes to the master, or request Terra Nova to destroy that data for that project.

Estimates and Quotes

  • The client may request an estimate for services. The client may also request a written quote or estimate for a project.

Rush Fees

  • A "Rush Fee" may be applied to projects that are needed "ASAP". ASAP is defined as: SAME DAY as the client calls in or drops off a project. Our engineers are always scheduled with other projects that clients have booked time in advance, so adding another project to their schedule is determined by their availability after they have completed their scheduled sessions. The "Rush Fee" is determined by the engineer. Expect a rush fee if you have last minute, same day projects.
