Customer Care and After Care for high spending clients.
Non existent ! !

Make SURE you have any agreement you make, in writing as a Contract, at the start of any work being carried out by this Recording Studio. Record any conversations you have in some way, say, my making notes of the conversation and the date. If you agree something verbally such as, 'All completed tracks recorded should be sent to you via 'We transfer' to a particular email address' record it.I did but this was ignored, although 3 of the completed 8 tracks were sent by 'We transfer' but wanted additional money after the final payment for recording was made. Consequently the owner held me to ransom and refused to send them unless I paid him more money, along with payment of postage ! ! This I had to do to get my 'property'.
Remember, you are the client.
The work that was produced was of great quality and will not fault that aspect but the business brain is in the wallet ONLY. Very sad.

Company response : Sorry to hear you feel this way Paul, but as you were informed when we last spoke, we are a business and we have to charge for our services, we just can't work for free as you expected us to do so for a half day session a few weeks ago which unfortunatly resulted in you becoming very negative towards the business.
As you can see, we have had nothing but extreamly positive feedback over our years of honest and trustworthy service from hundreds of clients and we pride ourselves on continuing to supply a high quality service and to treat our clients with respect.
For anyone reading, I would suggest to look at the 99% positive feedback, make your own mind up about the 1 negative comment and if you would like more details of my side of the story regarding this very strange incident, I'm more than happy to explain.
Other than that, as I've said numerous times, good luck with everything and I'm sorry you feel the way you do.

My daughters visit to the studio was a Christmas present but she absolutely loved the experience she got from recording a cover. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere and well worth the money would definitely recommend you and we will be back.

We had a great day recording with Matt. With ModernWave you're not just getting an end product. You're getting an experience. He really involves you in every step of process. Great day. We will be back. Thanks Matt.

If this is your first time in a recording studio and you are nervous about singing, don't be, Matt will soon put you at ease with his friendly manner and calm professionalism, he's a real perfectionist who'll get the best out of any performer, old or young.

Photo uploaded by Luke BrightmoreWith its massive live room, an abundance of top end equipment and an engineer/producer with experience, knowledge and most importantly a passion for not only recording music, but pulling out all the stops to make it sound as good as it possibly can, Modern Wave studio is a great choice for just about any sort of recording at a price you won't find anywhere else for the amount it has to offer.

I Would heartily recommend MW especially for any band that would like to record live/live with overdubbing for your most honest, authentic and real sound without losing quality; something you won't be able to do at all at many other places or anywhere with the same price tag.

I ws very happy with my experience at Modern Wave Studio. I booked a 2hr recording session, but we achieved a lot in such a short amount of time. Matt is very friendly and his equipment was great. Highly recommended.

Modern Wave Studios is a good value for money and a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, he was very helpful when it come to making the actual song structure and making it sound better. I would recommend this to my friends because of how welcoming it was.
