Recording Studio - Studio One

Please note that due to Covid-19, this recording studio is closed and we are not accepting bookings or holds at this time. Please check this page regularly for updates.

Once the home of the CBC Radio Orchestra, Studio One is a favourite location for recording 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, this space has accommodated 80 peice orchestras.   An excellent complement of percussion instruments, a top tier Steinway Model D 9" piano, and an extraordinary microphone selection position Studio One at the top of the class.

The centre piece of Studio One 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.
