Big things can come in small packages, and sometimes the best can come in the very smallest of them.

Five Two Eight Recordings is a collaborative sound space comfortably nestled in one of Toronto's West end neighbourhoods. It has all of the equipment and tools that you would find in some of its larger counterparts, just a lot more compact. It was built with comfort and functionality in mind without compromising on service and reliability.

Whether you are looking to record your podcast, translate an entire television series into a foreign language or record and mix your first solo EP, we have the right tools available to help you get the job done.

Neil McDonald - Engineer 

When Neil was just 11 years old he figured out how to rig a pair of headphones to his dads cassette deck to record himself drumming to Led Zeppelin. He’s been a sound engineer and drummer ever since. With over 25 years of experience working as a commercial audio engineer Neil’s mixing and tracking skills are second to none, but just as importantly he is a gentle giant who is able to put people at ease and get the best performance out of everyone who steps into his vocal booth.
