The Main Room, Studio A

The heart of Signature Sound lies within “Studio A”. For over 25 years, the room has housed a venerable “who’s who” of recording artists. With a vast selection of modern and vintage gear, Studio A caters to artists and musicians who only strive for the best.

Equipped with a “loaded” 32-channel API 1608 console with a selection of outboard from Neve, Manley, BAE, GML, Urei, Teletronics, DBX and Universal Audio. The substantial mic collection includes examples from Neumann, Bock, Wunder, Royer, Coles, AKG, Shure, AT, Electrovoice, Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic. Designed by acoustics and studio guru Carl Yanchar, the control room  is one of the largest in Southern California, and the live room is big enough to house just about any creative project.
