REX's Audio & Video Facilities

Facility

REX is located in the historic Goose Hollow district of SW Portland near Providence Park, home to the Portland Timbers. We occupy 6200 square feet of a commercial building designed by architect Jim Stoikoff. Inside are two recording studios with Pro Tools HDX systems, three video editing suites running Adobe Premiere and the Creative Cloud, and a full complement of state-of-the-art recording and video equipment.

The main recording and control rooms were acoustically designed by world-class studio architect Russ Berger resulting in two of the quietest recording spaces in the Pacific Northwest, and they are conveniently located in downtown Portland.

The smaller recording studio (Studio 2: 17′ x 17′) has a cork floor and is ideal for VO, ADR, audio books, and anything voice related. The larger recording studio (Studio 1: 39′ x 27″) is both useful in tracking music projects as well as a super quiet space to shoot video projects such as product demonstrations, instructional videos, continuing education, music and dance, and many other types of video production that can benefit from a quiet shooting space. Clients can choose from a number of backgrounds including a 21′ wide green screen. REX offers Studio 1 either for rental (half or whole day including a basic light package) or with a full production crew.

Additionally, REX has a compliment of 48 music libraries from which to choose from every conceivable genre of music with tens of thousands of tracks available.

We have experienced production and post experts on staff as well as close relationships with additional creative partners (writers, directors and crew) who enabling us to support multiple projects across all stages of production and post.
