Studio B Front
Studio B Back
Our ability to tell a story through sound has made us one of New York’s most sought after audio post-production facilities by producers, animators and film directors for over thirty years.
With a long history of award-winning achievements — including the Cannes Golden Lion and the 2014 Radio Mercury Award — our work can be heard in thousands of TV, radio and web advertisements in addition to nationally released feature films, blockbuster games, documentaries and live action TV shows. In fact, it’s very possible you grew up listening to our animation work, with over 800 animated episodes to our credit including the Emmy Award-Winning “Doug.”
Our penthouse studio, over-looking Midtown Manhattan on the corner of 46th Street and 5th Avenue, is centered around three state-of-art mix/sound design suites. Using both cutting edge tools and unwavering attention to detail, we sculpt every project’s sound to enhance the story and emotion.
Because an iPad doesn’t sound like a TV and a TV doesn’t sound like a car radio, we make sure to optimize each version of your project to match its various intended formats. It’s this kind of dedicated attention to detail that ensures a trouble-free experience for all your audio post needs. This may explain why we’ve had the pleasure of working for some of the world’s largest and most prestigious brands, advertising agencies, and production companies – and why we’ll continue to do so as technology changes in the future.

- Full suite of noise-reduction and audio clean-up tools to ensure the highest quality of production audio
- Implementation of metering standards to comply with loudness specifications and network guidelines – i.e “The Calm Act”
- Unsurpassed expertise in editing and sweetening
