Aspen’s Associates Are:
Back in 1978, Aspen Pittman founded a consulting company focused on music and audio products and called it Aspen and Associates. Aspen’s designs have been coveted by musician’s and producers ever since.
Today Aspen and Associates thrives as the “Mothership” umbrella company for his large format live vintage style recording studios, Aspen’s Place Recording, and his newest line of innovative audio products that are simply branded “APD”, for Aspen Pittman Designs. Included are Aspen’s patented Center Point Stereo’s Spacestation v.3, which is a stereo powered monitor that creates a 3D stereo sound field everywhere in the room, and beyond!
Aspen Pittman’s designs have been coveted by legendary musicians and record producers for nearly 40 years. His best selling Tube Amp Book has sold over 140,000 copies. He has designed dozens of tube guitar amps, stage and studio microphones, and has designed and built over a dozen unique electron vacuum tubes from scratch.
Aspen’s inventions, such as the Speaker Emulator, changed the way we record guitar, and his technology will forever change the way we produce live music. Aspen’s audio designs have earned multiple utility patents both in the USA and around the world, and have garnered top awards in multiple fields including the prestigious TEC award for best microphone design.
Aspen’s Place Recording is a turnkey vintage “live” recording studio dedicated to producing full band live multi-track recordings “Old School”, the way records were made in the Golden Years of Rock and Soul.
Aspen’s Place Recording offers the best of both worlds; “old school” 32 track all tube based, live tracking, multi room studio complex located in the small town atmosphere of San Fernando city, just 20 minutes from Hollywood and 35 minutes from LAX, and at a fraction of the price you’d pay “over the hill” in Hollywood or the beach. We also offer full-service video and audio production capacity and a comfortable mixing suite for stereo, 2.1, and 5.1 audio and video productions.
Included in bringing your recording product to Aspen’s Place Recording studios is full access to over a half million dollar collection vintage instruments, microphones and audio inventory that is as unique as it is comprehensive. Perhaps more importantly, a visit to Aspen’s Place Recording gives you access to some of the finest most experienced audio producers and engineers, including our Aspen’s Place Recording manager Brian Acenzo who was working at Ray Charles studios until joining Aspen’s Place Recording studios upon Ray’s passing.
