EastWest Sounds - About Us, 29 Oct 2006 [cached]
The famous acoustics of the recording studios were not changed, and remain as designed in the 60s by Bill Putnam. EastWest Studios Documentary.
EASTWEST STUDIOS was founded by Bill Putnam in 1961 with funding from Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra.
Considered to be the "Father of modern recording" Putnam is acknowledged to be the first person to use artificial reverberation for commercial recording. He also developed the first multi-band equalizers, and with his company Universal Audio, was responsible for the development of classic equipment like the Urei 1176LN and Urei Time Align Monitors. He was involved in the early development of stereophonic recording and founded studios in Chicago, Hollywood and San Francisco. He was responsible for a number of innovations including: the first use of tape echo and echo chambers, the first vocal booth, the first multiple voice recording, the first use of 8-track recording, half-speed disc mastering. In 1957, he started United Recording Corp. in a building at 6050 Sunset and started new construction on new studios. Stereo was taking off and Putnam was determined to incorporate as many technological innovations into the new complex as possible.
In 1961, Western Recorders (now EastWest Studios) at 6000 Sunset was acquired and remodeled and incorporated into the complex with the facilities being known as United Western Recorders. Bill Putnam passed away in 1989. The studio was acquired by Oceanway.
