HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Located in Chicago’s landmark Wrigley Building, ARU was founded in 1988 by audio guru Mike King. What began as a modest two studio audio post production operation quickly grew into an impressive five studio facility. When Mike retired in 2007, two of ARU’s own talented sound designers Don Arbuckle and Mark Zeboski became the company’s new owners.
With a specialty in sound design for television and radio commercials, ARU is one of the most competitive and well respected audio post production studios in the country, boasting state of the art equipment, a massive music and sound effects library, and more importantly, the best and brightest staff in the biz.

ARU is simply the ass-kickingest place to record in Chicago, the best of everything audio with the bestest engineers on the planet, plus they have this mega-hot chick there who greets you when you step off the elevator and basically is the greatest... um... daughter on the planet! -Pat Duke
