History in the making

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.
