Vancouver’s Armoury Studios has been hosting international musicians for more than two decades. World-famous acts like Kiss, Avril Lavigne and Busta Rhymes have recorded out of the Kitsilano studio.
But for the past six months, unexplained radio interference has been threatening to ruin the studio’s reputation.
When staff try to record, high-pitched interference can be heard through the wired microphones, making it difficult for music engineers to capture the desired sounds.
“We’ve already lost money. We’re already paying a lot for tech. It’s wasted time in sessions and we’ve even lost sessions,” said chief engineer and manager Paul Silveira.
