Wally Heider Recording Studio, Los Angeles

Wally Heider Recording Studio, Los Angeles

Profile:
Recording studio founded by Wally Heider, located in Los Angeles, California, USA, near the intersection of Selma Ave. and Cahuenga Blvd. in Hollywood. The studio operated from 1967 until 1984. At the facility, Heider built Studio 3, with the name and dimensions of the room based on the famous Studio 3 at Bill Putnam's United Western Studios (AKA United Western Recorders). Wally Heider sold the studio and its name to Filmways, and in 1978, the L.A. studio became known as Filmways/Heider Recording. For some reason, this studio is referred to as "The Handlebar (Wally Heider Recordings)" on the A Star Is Born soundtrack.

For the San Francisco recording studio, please see Wally Heider Studios.
For the mobile recording studio based in Los Angeles, please see Wally Heider Recording.

Engineers known to have worked here: Bill Halverson, David Brand (chief engineer, 1976-1980).
