River 16 is Oakville’s community and commercial recording studio. Conveniently located in the heart of the Greater Toronto Area, it was built to provide a comfortable, state-of-the-art facility for the growing community.
Singer-songwriter Rob Lackie’s desire to build his own recording studio was first realized when he opened a small studio in a shack overlooking the 16-Mile Creek in Oakville. He realized that Oakville was home to many creative people working in the arts industry and wanted to provide a local high-calibre studio to meet the needs of their audio and video projects. Rob’s love for music and a desire to help others reach their full musical potential in a professional environment led to the opening of River 16 Studio in 2009.
The live room is over 700 square feet in size with 14ft vaulted ceilings and a raised, cushioned bamboo floor. All of the studio’s rooms have a warm vintage vibe resonance. Terry Medwedyk, one of Canada’s finest acousticians helped with the layout of the control room.
