Wide ranges of voices, ranging from Radio Announcer to the guy next door. His voice and manner conforms to the copy or to the instructions provided. Specializing in providing multiple styles.
Don began as an on-air announcer and quickly discovered that all the magic took place in the production room.
Due to his many years as a technical sales and providing application support to engineers, configuring network equipment to publishing houses and then later on custom designed Intel systems to software developers, Don maintains a strong command of the technical as if it were a second language.
Don Paustian produces over 50 other talents for broadcast, animation, IVR, industrial and more.

“Don is one of those people that it is just FUN to work with. He KNOWS what he's doing and has a pretty darn good "range" of voice qualities. He understands the the client IS King and does whatever he can to help make things easier. If you've got a problem, he not only knows how to find a solution...but he'll even persue the solution for you if you want. He's very reasonable.... Truly the kind of person you want on your team

“I had the pleasure of working with Don and his team in 2007-2008 when they worked tirelessly to create and edit our training tutorials. Compass Studios returns great results in a shorts amount of time. I did not need to give them much directions, they're experts of their trade and I was always pleased with the outcome. We were able to create our tutorials in English and later have Spanish and French voiceovers done by the same studio-very convenient! Don offered us a long list of voice talents from which we could select. Don is also very trustworthy because he returned the expensive piece of equipment we had lent him once we were done with the tutorials. If you choose Compass Studios, you're truly choosing to work with quality!”

His work is uniformly outstanding and on schedule. Over the years, Don developed professionally edited voice files for my company's speech recognition product, AccuNurse, and he created CDs for several marketing campaigns. Alan Letz -CEO
