Live Room


A classic recording studio in San Francisco.

DISCRETE was known as Hyde Street studio D from 1980, and previously Wally Heider Recording since 1969.  Acoustically the room mirrors Bill Putnam's iconic design of United Western #3 in North Hollywood.  Before this, the room originally housed  screening and editing suites for 20th Century Fox and RKO.  

Of many notable recordings to have been cut in this room are James Brown's 'It's A Man's Man's Man's World', Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's 'Deja Vu', Herbie Hancock's 'Headhunters', Digital Underground's 'Sex Packets' and Tupac Shakur's '2pacalypse Now'.
