Chemical Sound recording studio, was located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Established in 1992, at 81 Portland Street by Murray Mitchell artist, producer and producer engineer, Daryl Smith[1] (often assisted by Ian Blurton[citation needed]), as a "no-frills" operation, focusing on a large selection of vintage (circa 1960 and 1970s) recording equipment, API mixing consoles, and professional resources necessary for a best outcome.[2] The tube mics, live room, sound formant, and burlap baffled walls were some of the expertise. Clients at that time included Nelly Furtado, Joan Osborne, Noel Ellis, Daniel Lanois, Peter Moore, Our Lady Of Peace, Rusty, Sucker Punch, Big Sugar, Boot Sauce, Bare Naked Ladies, Big Wreck and more. The phone number "416-971-9635" was in both the White pages and Yellow pages directories for the stated 92-96 period, Mitchell and Chemical Sound, hard copy.[citation needed]

In 2006, the studio's original location was razed, making way for a real estate development and condominium project. The studio subsequently relocated to Riverdale, Toronto, eventually acquired by Dean Marino and Jay Sadlowski.[3] In February 2012, Chemical Sound announced it was closing its operation but would honor bookings already scheduled.[4]
