About Us

SubCat Studios was founded in 2001, originally in Skaneateles, NY.  Mastering Engineer and Principal Owner Ron Keck had been working with digital recording since 1989, and he was an early beta tester for ProTools (previously known as Sound Tools). Because of his experience and skillset, SubCat quickly gained a reputation for high quality audio recording. Since then, Ron has moved SubCat to downtown Syracuse, NY, which is now home to a growing team of professional Sound Engineers, Photographers, and Artists. Today, SubCat prides itself on high-quality studio recording, remote recording, audio mixing and mastering, videography and photography, graphic design, CD and DVD duplication, printing, and much more.
