History

Audio Graphic Services (AGS) was formed in 1967 as a remote audio services company, to provide location recording services to recording studios, record companies, film and television production facilities in the Detroit Metro area. Edward Wolfrum, at that time Chief Engineer at United Sound Systems, Detroit's Largest Full Service Studio, founded AGS to provide remote services at the suggestion of Jimmy Siracuse, the United Sound's owner.

No commercially available consoles nor portable equipment was made for this application at the time, so a custom console and other ancillary gear was personally designed and built by Wolfrum. This business activity succeeded and in 1972 a bass trapped, golden mean designed studio was designed and constructed to complete remote location recording work, record small sessions, overdubs, mixing, editing and assembly. During this time numerous major national album and film projects were recorded either on remote or at the Audio Graphic Services studio with mixdown, editing and assembly completed and released from this facility. As business developed, film and video location audio and audio post production was also added to our services.

Always in the forefront of technical design, during the early 1980's Audio Graphic Services was the first Detroit recording facility to provide digital recording, editing and mastering services; first with our proprietary systems and later with both JVC and Sony systems.

Wolfrum then designed and constructed a custom digital editing computer system for audio editing, assembly and mastering long before the present software based systems were commonplace. This technology development enhanced our digital audio engineering knowledge and experience. Much of this software technology has been licensed to others.

In 1979 with the marriage of Edward Wolfrum to Susan, a talented graphic artist, the "Graphic" in Audio Graphic Services took on new meaning with the ability to offer high quality graphic services to our clients. With this came album cover graphics, media package design, advanced graphic services, logo design and a myriad of graphic services. With the advent of digital graphics Audio Graphic Services entered this arena as well. But with a difference...an EXPERIENCED Graphic Artist who has developed advanced techniques with the digital graphics technology. Art served by Science.

With the thrust of changes in the audio industry Audio Graphic Services has always been on the cutting edge. The lack of aesthetics which has prevailed in much of the music recording industry in recent years has forced change in our business direction. The knowledge and background gained in over 40 years of professional audio experience has been transported to the technical arena. We have excelled in providing Audio Technical Design and Consultation Services, Acoustic Analysis, Audio Software Design, Digital Audio Implementation, Hardware Design, Audio Restoration and Recovery and Acoustic Design Service to a new technical client base.
