Vancouver Broadcast Centre

Recording Studio

Studio 1 was the home of the CBC Radio Orchestra for decades and today is a favourite location for CBC Vancouver broadcasts and concerts and film scoring work.

With a beautifully smooth reverberant characteristic, capacity for an audience and performers of up to 160 people, the room is widely acknowledged as one of - if not the best - studio sound stages north of Hollywood and west of Toronto.

Ideal for orchestral and choral recordings, the room recently accommodated an 88 piece orchestra. An excellent compliment of percussion instruments, a top tier Steinway Model D 9" piano, and an extraordinary microphone selection position Studio 1 at the top of the class.

The centre piece of Studio 1 is a Euphonix System 5 audio console with 48 physical faders and a fully redundant dual core system. A wide assortment of outboard processing and Genelec 5.1 monitoring complete the package.
