Sunset Studio’s featured our awesome studio head, Robin Goodchild! “I snuck into a session when B.B. King and Ray Charles were jamming. ‘This is awesome!’ I exclaimed quietly to myself. ‘This IS awesome!’ replied someone less than a foot behind me. It was John Mayer…doing the same thing I was doing.” – Rob, @unitedrecording Studio Director, who spends every morning in Studio A drawing inspiration from its decades of musical artistry. #UnitedRecording #HumansOfSunset

#TBT to the 800 series format. These frames were developed by Valley People in the 80s to hold the Gain Brain II, Maxi-Q, and of course, the Kepex II. Often understated, these gates have a wide variety of uses and a sound like no other. Sometimes, you just need a little silence ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Last Friday, we featured one of our fastest FET-based compressors. This week, we slow it down a bit with a rack of original @uaudio LA-2As. Known for their gentle, slower sound, these T4A/T4B optical cell based compressors react differently based on the signal being fed into it. Now the question is... what’s your favorite way to use one?

In honor of Women's History Month, we celebrate #DaphneOram. ❤
▫️
Not only is she thought of as the FIRST person to manipulate electronic sounds (in real time) in our history, she also INVENTED the first sequencer and built her own⚡ electronics⚡ in hopes to enable everyone to become a composer. She was also was the first to map visuals and gestures to musical parameters.
She did all of this in the 50s!😎 In 1957, she set up the famous BBC Radiophonic Workshop - which she had to fight for.
▫️
Her accomplishments helped revolutionize music.
Thank you, Daphne! "The idea of a ‘graphical music’ system consumed her. She thought of electronic music not as a soulless, mechanically-controlled thing, but as organic, human and joyously imperfect as any other music. Her gestural interface means all people become composers which affirmed her philosophy that at a molecular level, we are sounds. We are all made up noisy atoms and vibrations.
▫️
Oram was told to take six months off; her bosses said they were concerned about the effect of radiophonic equipment on the human body. (Her male colleagues were fine, it seems they got to stay). Deeply frustrated, Oram quit." Excerpts taken from Holly Williams BBCdotcom

Sony’s flagship PCM-3348HR.
Michael Jackson’s ‘Invincible’, Eric Clapton and BB King’s ‘Riding with the King’, and Mariah Carey’s ‘Heartbreaker‘, are just a few of the albums that were recorded on this machine. Eventually, the 1/2” 48 track digital format died out as Pro Tools gained a wider acceptance; rendering this $350K machine nearly obsolete.

Prolific eight-time Grammy award-winning producer and drummer Gregg Field tracked two projects here at United Recording that earned two 2019 Grammy nominations, including, "Standards" by Seal for Best Traditional Pop Album and "All About That Basie" by the The Legendary Count Basie Orchestra for Best Large Ensemble Album.

Working alongside producer Nick Patrick and recording engineer Don Murray, Field served as drummer on Seal's groundbreaking album, which tracked songs in United Recording's Studio B and recorded vocals in Studio A. The album, marking Seal's return to the music scene, combined his unique voice with some of the greatest jazz cuts and swing classics ever written.

Canadian Chanteuse Patrice Jégou Tracks Songs for "If It Ain't Love" at United Recording | United Recording Studios

Canadian professional figure skater turned accomplished singer Patrice Jégou recently recorded songs for her upcoming sophomore album, "If It Ain't Love" at United Recording. Scheduled to be released March 2019, the album blends jazz and pop, comprising big band, orchestral arrangements, power ballads and a cappella adaptations.

As a trained classical mezzo-soprano, Jégou tapped five major arrangers for this project, including Jorge Calandrelli, John Clayton, Mark Kibble, David Paich and Mike Lang. She is also accompanied by some of the most sought-after studio musicians and ensembles in the music industry: Lang on piano and Rhodes, Kevin Axt on bass, John Robinson on drums, Larry Koonse and Michael Thompson on guitar, Luis Conte on percussion, Grammy-award winning a cappella group Take 6 and the inimitable Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra.
