When producer Jack Douglas and Aerosmith were looking for a studio to record guitar overdubs, vocals and additional live tracks for the band's recent album, Music From Another Dimension!, they didn't have to look too far: Warren Huart, engineer on the project, had just the place – his own Swing House Studios.
Swing House, which opened its doors 15 years ago, is a sprawling, multi-room facility located in the heart of Hollywood. Operating as both a rehearsal and recording studio, it has played host to artists such as Augustana, Marilyn Manson, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Shakira, The Fray, Band Of Horses, Iggy Pop and Maroon 5.
In the following photo gallery, Huart, who also doubles as producer for many acts, shows us around Swing House Studios (not to mention a quick peek inside his personal home recording space, Spitfire). The guided tour includes an extensive look at the outboard equipment that was used during the Aerosmith sessions.
