However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Video Sync can be supported via low cost 3rd party hardware. The software also features advanced crash recovery routines which will retrieve incomplete audio recordings on reboot after a host system catastrophic failure such as sudden power loss.

Soundscape Software

The Soundscape software is a powerful audio only multi-track DAW Recorder/Player. Soundscape V6.2 has SSL's 'Pro-Convert' technology built in, so you are able to export recorded multi-track sessions for studio based editing and mixing using a 'Save As' command in the File Menu. This exports a range of formats that are compatible with a selection of popular DAW packages including; native Pro Tools 8 & 9 (.ptf) Sessions, Cubase/Nuendo Track Archives, Final Cut XML's and Samplitude/Sequoia Edit Lists. By default audio recordings are saved as Broadcast WAV files and of course these can also be accessed and used for more traditional approaches to project export if needed. Soundscape also provides session import from the same selection of supported DAW's and can be used as a Player for full multi-track sessions for live performance.
