About Us


A recording studio by the beach

In 1999, opening a post audio facility in Manhattan Beach, CA seemed, perhaps, an odd choice. However, Steve Gregan would launch Wholly Cow Audio and now Waterfront Sound to create a thriving studio; mixing all ABC television network radio spots for seven seasons, becoming a primary facility for Mattel, FX, Fox Sports, and several prominent agencies and production companies.


Waterfront Sound relocated to the Manhattan Beach Studios (MBS) lot and increased its capabilities with a fantastic video editorial staff at Blue Room Post. At the new location, Waterfront Sound has worked extensively with Marvel, recording ADR for “Captain America” and “Thor,” as well as several TV shows in production.


Sound design, ADR, foley, music production, and mixing anything from the shortest promo to a full length surround feature – we do it all.
