Doug Jumps Off The Fire Escape!

November 1st, 2011 by Douglas Romanow

I’ve finally jumped off the Fire Escape! Or more exactly, after fifteen years at my Toronto west-end studio, I’ve made a significant upgrade, moving my production home to the stunningly beautiful Noble Street Studios. Noble Street is a world-class recording and mix facility located at Queen and Dufferin, where I will continue to serve my clients with passion, vision and a dedication to the highest standards of sonic excellence.

A few of the reasons for this move include more analog options (2″ and 1/2″ tape machines, buckets of Neve pre-amps, classic compressors and EQs, a larger mic locker), a lower noise floor [you can watch the Air Show, and never hear it] and more space for my growing instrument collection. My mixing options have increased as well, with both Studio A and B available depending on delivery requirements for each project. There are comfortable lounges and parking supplied, as well as great hotels and restaurants within walking distance.

As many of you know, I love the sound of live bands, string ensembles and horn sections. Noble Street is wonderfully equipped to capture these acoustic instruments. Sweetening productions in this way has always been a passion of mine, and I’m thrilled to have direct access to facilities that capture these performances with style.

At Noble Street, I also have a dedicated production suite for writing, programming and admin, and preferred rates in all spaces for each level of project. So I hope you’ll come alongside and jump off the Fire Escape with me – come grab a coffee with me at Noble Street!
