Booking Confirmation

All mix files are considered final once received by Forensic Audio. Mix revisions received at a later date may incur additional charges and delay the completion of the mastering session.


Confirmed mastering sessions may be cancelled up to 48 hours prior to the commencement of any work. Please note that preparation work for an unattended mastering session may start many days before the expected completion/delivery date.

A 50% cancellation fee may be applied where a booking is cancelled within 48 hours of the session or if any preliminary work has commenced.


Any person attending a mastering session, or communicating with Forensic Audio on the Client’s behalf, are deemed to be authorised representatives of the Client. Forensic Audio is not liable for any costs or expenses incurred by the Client’s representatives during the course of or related to mastering sessions.

Mastering is charged at a per track rate as specified on our rates page. The total number of tracks billed is determined by the number of tracks delivered in the final sequenced master.
