Burlington, Ontario–based B Town Sound recently hosted an expansion party to celebrate its Studios B and C rehearsal spaces coming online. The Hamilton Music Awards–winning studio (Best Recording Studio of the Year; also nominated this year) caters to small and large ensembles—both local and international—and is owned by engineer/producer Justin Koop. Studio B (pictured) is producer Gianni Luminati’s audio/visual lab, where he creates video compositions for artists like Walk off the Earth and Sarah Blackwood. The room is also used for all the mixing and editing. It has a Pro Tools|HD2 system, Universal Audio and API mic pre’s, a Distressor and Chameleon Labs compressors. The fully floated room was designed and built by Koop. Studio C includes three multipurpose rooms for teaching, songwriting, recording and editing, and is open for rent on a daily or monthly basis to interns and recordings on a budget.
