Jim Cissell was one of the first voice talents in the US with a professional home recording studio. Over the years he’s stocked it with the best gear money can buy. Today, audio guru Dan Friedman says, “Your studio sounds better than 85% of the professional studios I deal with."
Thousands of national and international documentaries, TV shows, commercials, feature films, videos, and web pages have been recorded here. Connect via ISDN, Source Connect, or phone patch. All sessions are edited and archived.
