Co-owners engineer/sound designer Drew Weir and producer Riso Sanders have expanded their commercial sound design and audio post facility, Vagabond Audio, with a new 2,000-square-foot production studio, with acoustic enhancements provided by John Storyk of Walters-Storyk Design Group.

The facility relies on Digidesign Pro Tools|HD2 Accel, which allows Weir to interface with Avid workstations and other offline environments. Mixing is via ProControl with audio playback on Dynaudio AIR 6 speakers. “The sound of the studio was the critical issue for us,” Weir said. “We worked closely with John and his WSDG team to keep the studio as ‘transparent’ as possible so that clients hear the mix, not the room. We're particularly happy with our 10×12-foot live room, which is ideal for voice-over, Foley and ADR work.”
