Bio:ANTHONY KUZUB updated April 2015
Anthony P. Kuzub is a 3rd generation recording and broadcast audio
engineer. At the age of ten he founded his first company, Copy Cat Recording, which duplicated audio CD's to cassettes for the benefit of those who did not own CD players.
Growing up at CFQC TV in Saskatoon, he played with Ward-Beck Systems mixing
consoles in the off air production control rooms. He heads the Ward-Beck Systems Preservation Society, whose members swap tech info and documentation about the legendary Toronto manufactured broadcast consoles. After 15 years of owning studios, recording bands, mixing FOH + Monitors for IATSE 300, and refurbishing consoles he moved to Toronto.
In 2010 Anthony commissioned Revolution Recording as their Technical
Supervisor by participating in refurbishment team for their SSL, Neve
Consoles. While Rush was recording in studio A, Anthony was building
