The Client is the Producer

Unless the client has prior arrangements with Sherrett Studios engineers to act as Producer, thereby providing production input, all decisions and approval of recorded material are the responsibility of the client.  It is therefore recognized that the client is the Producer. The client is thus responsible for adequacy, appropriateness of music style, performance, microphone/preamp choices and all use of outboard gear, reverbs, equalizers, limiters, instruments, and studio performers.  It is also recognized that it is the responsibility of the client to insure that final mixes are performed to his/her satisfaction. The engineer must in this case only respond to the values chosen by the Producer.  Finally, payment of all arrangers, musicians, and contract labor are the responsibility of the client

lndependent Producers 
Sherrett Studios can recommend a variety of independent producers to fit your specific project.  Production fees should be discussed with the individual producer. Sherrett Studios is not responsible for the quality of work by independent producers or engineers

Equipment Policies 
Sherrett Studios will make every effort to prevent its own equipment failure, but assumes no liability for delays or charges caused by failure of Sherrett Studios equipment during sessions.  Sherrett Studios also assumes no liability for clients' equipment, other personal property, or audio recording material stored on the premises.  Client should take responsibility to insure his own hard drive recordings and equipment from loss or harm.
