History Of Recording Site - Studio Photos and Info magazine cover

This site seems to be getting busy here at the start of 2012. As it title hints, its all about the recording side of popular music. And while tales of tapes and consoles may not float everyones boat there is a lot of promise of non hardcore technical content going by the photos of many artists in the studio already available


"Greetings! I would like to welcome and introduce you to the History of Recording online community; the guide to Recording Studio History and Knowledge. As a member, of the site, you will find unique recording studio history, pictorials, discussions and many other informational sections regarding the analog recording studio and its associated evolution."



link to the main site is here



a link to the photo index which includes Aretha, Platters, James and Bobby Purify, and more can be found here



Anyone clock any of the "unknown artists" ?


Does seem to be in middle of content updating/adding period so would class it as one to keep a eye on.

Used to do a bit of recording in studios when I was younger so was interested in looking at the tape machines and consoles etc. There is a photo of a AMPEX AG-1000 16 Track 2" Master Recorder ( now uploaded below) apparently the very first unit arriving at Mira Sound Studios New York. The Recorder was apparently used, later, in the day on "With this Ring" by the Platters ( brilliant track incidentally) . That would have been 1966? At about the same time the Beatles were still using 4 Track technology over at Abbey Road and recording Revolver. The USA has always been ahead in the technology stakes and it just goes to show what brilliant engineers they had at Abbey Road.

Have very much enjoyed surfing the photo's on this site and no I can't recognise any of the unknown groups. The pics of the teen band are very good and the dude smoking the pipe is classic.

As you say, one to keep an eye on for new interesting photos.
