Studio Sound Recorders – George Tobin Studios

Studio Sound Recorders, later known as George Tobin Studios, opened in 1980.  Built by Producer George Tobin and designed by renowned studio designer and architect, John “Jack” Edwards, who also designed the fabled “rock and roll studio” Studio B at Capitol Records, United Western with Bill Putnam, O’Henry Studios, The Tiffany Theater, Ocean Way Studios, AmeRayCan Studios and Studio Sound Recorders. Studio Sound Recorders has a storied past. Smokey Robinson cut albums at Studio Sound Recorders, including a # 1 album in 1981. Herb Alpert cut tracks for his hit album Fandango. Tiffany was “discovered” and cut her albums here. The list of big names at Studio Sound Recorders is long: David Byrne,  Joe Pass, Thelma Houston, The Manhattans, Alphonse Mouzon, Kim Carnes, Mojo Nixon, The Temptations, Joe Pass, Clint Black, Chocolate Milk, Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack, the Seawind Horns, Herbie Hancock. Michael Brecker, Lee Ritenour, Freddie Hubbard,  and many, many others. John Harrison recorded the score for George Romero’s Day of the Dead there. R&B Songwriter Gary Goetzman, now Tom Hanks partner at Playtone, was Studio Sound’s manager. Studio Sound’s Studio A had one of the first two digital consoles in the US, the Trident Di-An (the other was at Goodnight LA).

The acoustic qualities that made it a great studio have been preserved over the years and continue to enhance every project that comes out of its well-heeled doors. 

Mixers Sound purchased this facility, located at 11337 Burbank Blvd, North Hollywood in 2020.
