EastWest Studios is the world’s premier recording facility. Located in the heart of Hollywood, the studios have given rise to some of the most celebrated music of the last sixty years, from Frank Sinatra to The Rolling Stones, and has produced more Grammy-winning albums than any other studio in the world. Now, this iconic complex has been brought into the 21st century by an astonishing collaboration between EastWest Sounds producer Doug Rogers and internationally renowned designer Philippe Starck.
The idea was simple – take the most historic recording studios in the United States and transform it to meet the needs of contemporary artists and producers recording in the new millennium. The key ingredient, however, was in preserving the integrity of the live recording rooms, as built by legendary engineer Bill Putnam in 1961.
The result is a truly unique experience that stimulates both the aural and visual senses, that combines the epic sound recordings of the past with a bold, playful vision of the future. A place where artists can meet, mingle, and be inspired, while at the same time shaping the way music is heard for generations to come.
From Frank Sinatra to the Rolling Stones, Studio One has produced some of the most celebrated albums in music history. Spanning over 61,000 cubic feet with a vibrant sound that’s unparalleled, Studio One is perfect for any session – from single voice to 70-piece symphonic orchestra. This iconic studio comes complete with a spacious isolation booth and a beautiful Bechstein D-280 Concert Grand Piano and private artist lounge.
Simply put, Studio Two is one of the best rock recording rooms in the world. Its high ceilings and mid-ambience provide a tight punchy sound constantly sought after by top producers like Rick Rubin. The studio has an additional drum isolation booth, a vocal isolation booth, and a Yamaha C7 grand piano that has been used on many rock albums, and private artist lounge.
The smallest but arguably the most famous of our studios, the design of Studio Three has been copied over and over by recording studios across the globe. But only here can artists channel the lush, syrupy sound that catapulted acts like The Mamas and The Papas into the annals of music history. The room comes complete with a Steinway B grand piano and private artist lounge.
Studio Five is known as one of the best sounding rooms ever constructed. Originally a mix room where some of the biggest hits by Nirvana, R.E.M. and Muse were mixed, the studio underwent extensive renovation in 2013 and has since catered to the créme de la créme of the industry. With the largest control room in the building, natural lighting, and a vast isolation booth, Studio Five also offers clients the biggest perk of all: exclusive access to our infamous VIP Lounge.
