GCR Audio was originally known as Trackmaster Audio housed in the former chapel of St. Margaret's Girl's School (circa 1890). The studio complex was opened in 1980, designedby the legendary studio architect John Storyk (Jay Z, Alicia Keys, Electric Lady Studios, Record Plant).
Sadly, Trackmaster Audio went vacant in the late nineties. Not wanting to see such an amazing studio fade away, John Rzeznik and Robby Takac of the Goo Goo Dolls took over the facility in 2007 as their own exclusive Inner Machine Studios. John Storyk came back to Buffalo and was contracted to completely redesigned the studio for modern recording. The results of this makeover were so dramatic that the studio was featured on the cover of Mix Magazine. In 2010, Robby Takac wanted to share this phenomenal space with the masses and opened the studio doors to the public. GCR Audio was born.
Since then, GCR Audio has been both a revolving door for world-class artists and the ideal studio for new musicians and bands. Clients book time to record albums, singles, or collaborate with the studio’s in-house orchestration team.
GCR Audio has become a go-to studio for world renowned acts such as James Taylor, Man O War, Little Wayne, Every Time I Die, Taking Back Sunday, Jessie J, The Flaming Lips, Barenaked Ladies, Beach Slang, Ani Difranco, Aqueous, The Goo Goo Dolls and so many more over the years of it's recording history.
GCR’s staff is comprised of veteran engineers, studio musicians, and producers; the staff are experts in countless genres including rock, pop, R&B, hardcore, hip-hop, punk, metal, gospel, classical, and everything in between. GCR Audio also does post production/scoring for video/film.
