Since 2007, Big Yellow Duck (BYD) has been midtown Manhattan’s premiere audio post destination, offering three state-of-the-art sound studios, top-shelf recording and mixing gear, and an incomparable team of creative composers, sounds designers, foley artists, mix engineers and casting directors — all within a few minutes walk from Grand Central Station, Bryant Park, and Rockefeller Center.

BYD has been providing audio post and original music for a host of children’s programming, including Doc McStuffins, Nature Cat and Donkey Hodie. We have contributed our talents to content for Disney, Viacom, Hasbro and PBS. Additionally, BYD brings their talents to a diverse group of advertising, video games and scripted podcast clients.

At Big Yellow Duck, we love what we do. From original scoring of feature films and animated series to recording and mixing 30-second radio spots, we are most happy when we are behind our recording desks composing, recording, editing, mixing and delivering the highest quality audio for all manner of broadcast projects. Over the years, we have earned the trust and repeat business of our loyal clients from around the world, hosting guests from Ireland, China, the UK, Australia, and more. If you are in New York and you want to talk audio, we hope you’ll drop in or give us a call. We’d love to show you around our studio and discuss how we can make your project shine.

Our People

Big Yellow Duck was founded by Matthew Pedone (executive producer) and Stuart Kollmorgen (creative director and composer) to create what they wanted in a recording studio. Lou Esposito (head engineer and sound designer) has been with the Duck from day one. Chris Gibney (engineer, producer, and studio manager) rounds out the team to achieve the highest standards in the industry.
