the Red Carpet Studio
Sound Design


Q: What do Song Writers, Voice Actors, Rock Bands and Independent Film Makers all have in common?

A: The importance of quality audio.

A high-end audio production studio located in Orillia Ontario – less than 30 minutes from both Barrie and Gravenhurst! We provide quality recording at an affordable price. Whether you’re cutting an album with a six piece band, or shooting a short film and need twelve friends to sound like a hundred zombies, The Red Carpet Studio is equipped to meet your audio requirements.

The Red Carpet Studio is owned and operated by recording engineer and audio obsessor, Luke Bennett. Before he got into recording, Luke played in a hardcore band known as Worthless Without.

To get an idea of what we can do, listen to a few of our previous projects in the Portfolio section of our site. Connect with Luke to take the first step in getting the production quality you need for your next project.

The Studio

The Red Carpet Studio has a new location, in a freshly built extension on Luke and Karlie’s home in Orillia. It’s a furnished, full production recording facility. Not only do we use professional, high end recording hardware and software, we’ve also got a mini fridge filled with Coke, and a big-screen monitor allowing for a superbly interactive recording experience. Just a few things to make ya feel at home. If you’re interested in seeing our set up, connect with us and we’ll set up a time for you to drop in. Remember, Barrie and Gravenhurst folk, we’re only 30 minutes from your place.
