Along with 10+ years of experience in audio engineering R&B and Hip-Hop, my passion in music production and creative direction adds unique value to every project I work on.
From performing at the very first OVO Fest to collaborating with many hip-hop artists that come through the city including Joe Budden & Preme, as well as producers such as Noah '40' Shebib, Boi-1da, Sevn Thomas, and Pro Logic; Yuri Koller has a long deep rooted history in the Toronto music scene. He studied audio engineering at Trebas Musical Institute. Thereafter, he was accepted into The Remix Project, which afforded Yuri the opportunity to work with some of Toronto's best musicians and producers. A few years later, he opened RCR Studios, a recording studio located in downtown Toronto where he spent the past few years producing and engineering for many talented artists including J-Soul (Cash Money), & PVRX (Def Jam).

This is my second time working with Yuri and I am very pleased with the ease of the whole exchange. Communication with Yuri is effortless as he understands exactly what I am looking for. When requesting adjustments, he gets everything done perfectly in one shot. Also, Yuri works incredibly fast, regardless if you have a deadline or not. I will be reaching out again in the future.
Had a great experience working with Yuri. He is incredibly fast and easy to work with. Would love to work again.
Best sound engineer I've worked with hands down.
Interview with Yuri Koller
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Having exceptional experience in using plugins such as Melodyne & Auto-Tune and perfecting my mixing style, I pride myself in making singers happy, making sure they have great, silky smooth, on-pitch, clean and modern vocals.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Just be confident that you've done the best you could on the recording end before approaching a mixing engineer, such as singing in pitch, and isolated/dry vocals to ensure a clean mix. Have a demo version of your song ready for referencing purposes as well as an industry song that you would like your song to sound similar to.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I specialize in R&B, Soul, Hip-Hop, Pop, and Trap music.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Being a singer/musician myself, I believe it gives me an better understanding of what an artist wants in comparison to your traditional audio engineer
