A fun all analog mixing session has been going on the last few days. Artist recorded on tape, we’re mixing all analog onto 1/4” tape, then will most likely cut lacquers from tape as well! #analog #allanalog #mci428 #trident80b #maramachines #focalprofessional #ns10 #avalon737 #dbx160vu #1176 #la2a #unfairchild #warmaudioeqpwa #drawmer1960 #la5 #ssl

The amazing Bob Weir (of The Grateful Dead) stopped by yesterday for a full tour and to learn about our vinyl mastering and electroplating departments. He took some time to talk with our crew about the importance of keeping analog formats alive and thanked them for their dedication to their craft. A true gentleman! #bobweir #bobweirandwolfbros #vinylrecord #vinylrecords #analogformat #analogmusic #analogrecording #gratefuldead #mentor #livinglegend

At Welcome to 1979 we are serious about making great records. We've spent the last 10 years cultivating an atmosphere for you to make music the way you want to make music - and our gear and client lists reflect that. Our 13,000 square foot studio is housed in a former record pressing plant; you can feel the music history as soon as you step foot in the door. Welcome to 1979 provides a unique recording experience unparalleled with any other studio in the world. That’s because our entire staff is dedicated to the art of analog recording; from servicing tape machines, to cutting vinyl masters and even in-house electroplating.

Welcome to 1979

Welcome to 1979 is a Recording Studio Like No Other!

Our goal is to be a contradiction in terms: Irreverent yet highly respectful, playful but very focused, comfortable and relaxed while being professional and hard working. We are steeped in heritage yet are cutting edge, stand alone in our ethos but also collaborative in our community, leaders and educators yet willing to learn and are constantly improving. All of these traits allow us to foster a warm, inviting and affordable recording environment for independent and label artists alike. We are fueled by dedicated owners and staff whose purpose in life is to provide a positive experience for the good people of the world by helping fan the flames of creativity and exceeding even the highest expectations.
