History of Albums & Artists

The success of any audio equipment manufacturer, Sound Techniques included, is only as good as the writers, musicians, producers and engineers that employ the equipment to earn a livelihood and create enduring masterworks of recorded art. However, every great recording desk leaves a sonic imprint on the created work, wether it be Sound Techniques, Cadac, EMI, Neve, Helios or any of the other manufacturers of high quality audio gear. 

This archive attempts to document the recorded history of songs and albums as they relate to Sound Techniques recording consoles. Therefore, this is a fluid document, constantly being added to and refined for accuracy as we continue to receive information from  artists, producers, and engineers who were actually there. 

The archive below lists bands/albums that were recorded and mixed, complete or partial, including overdubs with Sound Techniques recording consoles.
