About Studio B
Ameraycan was built in the mid 1970’s by famed artist-producer Ray Parker, Jr. as his personal recording studio. Ray was the session guitar player on all the great Stevie Wonder records, and then became a household name for writing and recording the hit song “Ghostbusters”. The facility was designed by Jack Edwards who also designed studios such as United Western and Ocean Way with Bill Putnam. As Ray expanded the building it became one of the top mix studios in Los Angeles.
When first opened, the two-room facility with a private production suite operated with the newest technology available and was also the first facility to have SSL consoles in both studios, a clear commitment by Ray Parker Jr. to have the best of the best.
The studio became a popular commercial studio with the likes of Billy Idol, Miles Davis, and Cypress Hill calling the studio home for months on end for their recordings. Paramount purchased Ameraycan in 2000 and the studio went through a large renovation with the addition of a 80 channel G+ SSL (with ultimation) console in Studio B and the addition of 16 channels to the 56 channel SSL G in studio A to make it a 72 channel console.
