There is nothing like having a room full of musicians...

and being a part of the process that transforms

their vision into something they can enjoy for a long time - it's a great feeling.

- Ray Montford | Anchor Sound

Ever since completing ‘rock’n’roll’ school at Fanshawe college in 1984 - a program that inspired songwriting, production, creativity and the art of recording - I’ve been compelled to make and record music and assist others in realizing their vision.

In 1995, I opened my first studio and starting doing just that.  My tech heart is 'ol school analog but since acquiring Protools recording and editing software, I've been committed to amalgamating the best of both worlds.  All mixes goes through the analog console, to create warmth and dimension.  High quality microphones and pre-amps are used for recording,  For mastering, I have a combo of high-end tube and solid-state gear.

Whatever your goals are, I can assist you in recording your songs, your band, fine tuning with some pre-pro or having some fine session musicians play on your tracks.  Please don't hesitate to tell me about your project and we'll discuss it together.
