Award-winning audio company Aftermaster, Inc. (OTCQB: AFTM) has opened the doors this month of what promises to be one the best recording studios in North America—run by top engineers committed to preserving a legacy in Hollywood.
The new “Aftermaster Studios Hollywood” aims to breathe life back into a landmark originally constructed and made famous by Crosby, Stills & Nash, almost 40 years ago. Since its completion in 1978, it has been home to the recording and production of great talents, including Crosby, Stills & Nash, the Eagles, Jackson Browne, B.B. King, Warren Zevon, and in later years, Tupac Shakur, Fleetwood Mac and Good Charlotte.
The team at Aftermaster has renovated and modernized the iconic locale, updating it for a new generation of superstars. This marks the fifth studio that Aftermaster operates at the historic Crossroads of the World, built in 1936.
The newly renovated control room is outfitted with a legendary 80-channel SSL 4000 G+ recording console—originally built for NBC’s Saturday Night Live—and five racks of state-of-the-art gear built into the wall. The control room is punctuated by stone wall accents, stained glass windows and specially designed acoustic walls. The expansive live room sports new bamboo floors, stone-accented walls and includes a piano room and vocal booth.
“We are confident that our newly renovated vintage studio at Aftermaster Studios Hollywood will be recognized as one of the most important recording studios in the world,” comments Aftermaster CEO and Founder Larry Ryckman. “It was designed by one of best studio designers in the world and Graham Nash made sure that it was built to conjure musical magic. This studio is representative of a new dawn for the recording industry in Hollywood. We’re proud to be able to offer this important piece of music history to the next vanguard of artists.”
Next door, in the former offices of Alfred Hitchcock, Aftermaster’s award-winning team masters and engineers music for notable talents in four custom-built recording studios. The addition of this studio cements Aftermaster’s studio facilities among the preeminent recording facilities in North America.
The Aftermaster team includes a diverse group of big names in music and audio, which includes Pete Doell, Rodney Jerkins, Larry Ryckman, Justin Timberlake, Paul Wolff and Shelly Yakus who have cumulatively produced, engineered and mastered more hit music than any audio company in the world.
