  • Good afternoon. Thank you for joining me today. My name is Dave Boire. I am the founder and president of dB Audio , a professional recording studio that specializes in custom audio solutions for education and advertising . My studios are located here in Toronto and we have been serving a wide range of customers for 10 years. Before we get underway perhaps I could get to know YOU a bit better. Who are you and what do you do? Let me have a show of hands. How many of you are currently using audio in your productions? If not, why not? How many are using recorded voice? How many are using music and sound effects in addition to voice? How many of you have considered using audio? How many of you find the audio production process straight forward and fun? How many have objections to recording and using custom sound? (ask a few what’s stopping them - distracting, bandwidth hog, too expensive) How many of you have the odd problem with the audio production process?
