Many of today's modern recording practices can be traced back the studios' founder, Bill Putnam. Studio 2 Control Room Bill Putnam - Frank Sinatra's personal engineer - completely overhauled the studio when he first acquired it, converting it from a radio broadcast center. Putnam is widely credited for inventing many of the essential modern recording techniques and technologies, including the recording console, multi-band equalization, and artificial reverberation. Under the banner of his manufacturing company URIE, Putnam designed the still-ubiquitous LA-2A and 1176 compressors. Putnam's genius carried over to the design of the studios' live rooms, which he considered his crowning achievement. In 1985, Putnam sold the studio to engineering marvel Allen Sides (Phil Collins, Eric Clapton, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Zappa, and so on), who not only maintained all that Putnam had built, but introduced new technological advances.

Many people have tried to replicate Bill Putnam's acoustic designs, to various degrees of success, but there's an intangible perfection in the rooms that Bill built at 6000 Sunset.
