People and awards[edit]

Conway has been nominated for awards of technical and creative excellence,[2] and is one of the few currently active world-class recording facilities in Los Angeles, after the File sharing controversy. It started in 1972 as an eight track mastering studio, and was later purchased by Buddy and Susan Brundo in 1976. Since then, the studio complex has been rebuilt from the ground up by studio designer and architect Vincent Van Haaff.[3][4]

Grammy Award winning producer and engineer Peter Mokran uses Studio B often.[5]

Facilities[edit]

Conway's studio perimeter includes a tropical garden area, located in a 54,000-square-foot (5,000 m2) gated complex. This feature makes it harder for paparazzi to photograph and enter the studio and parking area, improving the privacy of higher end artists and music professionals.[6][7][8]

Conway uses Pro Tools HD systems, as well as Studer multitrack machines.
