    History

    The studio was founded as Westlake Audio in the early 1970s and is credited as “one of the first big commercial efforts to produce acoustically standardized interchangeable rooms”. Westlake rooms aimed for an acoustic design that could give a fairly flat frequency response at the recording position, with the ability to control reverberation delay. The studios became very popular, and “Westlake-style” rooms spread to a number of other studios and around the world by the late 1970s.

    A number of well-known artists have recorded at Westlake, including: Michael Jackson, Rihanna, Shakira, Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Ne-Yo, Donna Summer, Alanis Morissette, Boston, Van Halen, Frank Ocean, Josh Groban, Quincy Jones, Dave Matthews, Kelly Clarkson, Nas, Keyshia Cole, Aaliyah, Missy Elliott, Britney Spears, Nine Inch Nails, Justin Bieber, Fifth Harmony.

    Also, a countless number of films, television shows and commercials have been recorded at Westlake.
