INFINITESPIN RECORDS HISTORY
Infinitespin Records is a full service recording studio located in Sherman Oaks, California. The studio is owned and operated by producer/engineer Matt Linesch. Infinitespin Records prides itself on its utmost attention to quality. Built around a one-of-a-kind 1972 40-channel API, accompanied by a 16-channel Neve sidecar, 24-track Studer A827, a choice of outboard gear (Manley, Retro, BAE, UTA, Highland Dynamics, and Dramastic), and a live room equipped with all the instruments a musician might need to complete their vision! In addition, the studio is built with a 64 I/O Protools HD system, able to accommodate any size live tracking session or mixing session.
The studio was built in the mid 80s by engineer Bobby Summerfield. The attention to detail is next to none. The mix room contains a 4 ft by 20 ft bass trap in the back of the room, paneling throughout the ceiling and between the mains, two isolated air-conditioned machine rooms, as well as two parallel walls full of sand. The live room is designed to be a wide pallet of sonic possibilities, with a dead zone at one end of the room and irregular pine walls on the other, where the sound can take on a whole new life. There is a full lounge, full kitchen, B room (equipped with tie-lines to the main control room for large live sessions), and a private gated parking lot in back.
The studio was notably owned by Sheila E for sometime, and then Simon Phillips. There is a tremendous amount of history in these walls, and it is apparent from the moment of entering the studio. With the classic acoustic technology and perfection of this studio build, the record making process is no longer a quest of finding good sounds, but rather a process of creating the sounds you want to hear.
