Calgary, AB, Canada (March 6, 2015)—Graeme Judd engaged Walters-Storyk Design Group to design a personal voiceover recording studio when he decided to build a family home in Calgary.
A voiceover artist with credits ranging from CBS to E!, Lifetime, CTV and MTV, Judd explains, “I spend countless hours recording network promos, TV and radio spots, and interstitial promos as the exclusive ‘voice’ for The Meredith Vieira Show and other programs. Our commitment to ground-up construction was the opportunity to make this studio happen.”
He continues, “Years of following pro audio and broadcast trade publication profiles on Walters-Storyk Design Group projects had fixed WSDG on my radar. I knew this investment was a critical decision, and WSDG was the first—and last—point on my design firm search. Their quick email response to my initial query led to a direct phone conversation with John Storyk. I immediately got the message that the size of my project was not as relevant as its acoustic and design challenges. I was also pleased to learn that my budget was sufficient to make this happen.”
“The prospect of fitting a control room, a comfortable client area and a compact VO booth within a 200-square-foot space was tempting; particularly as small project studios are trending now,” reports Matthew Ballos, project manager, WSDG. “It’s amazing how much gear and workspace you can fit into this compact an environment. “This studio is like a Mini-Cooper—it handles beautifully, sounds great, feels roomy and looks terrific.”
The Judd Residence Studio is outfitted with Avid HD OMNI, Pro Tools HD Native PCIe, Genelec 8030, 7050 and 6010 monitors, Neumann M149 Tube and U 87 Ai, Sennheiser MKH-416 and Telefunken ELA M260 mics and a wide selection of outboard gear that includes two Avalon Vt-737sp units, Rupert Neve Designs Portico II and BAE 1073, and is fully wired with Mogami cable.
