Originally opened its doors by Mack Emerman in 1958. Criteria added a second studio capable of holding a 72 piece orchestra in January 1967. This became Studio A, while the original studio became known as Studio B. By the end of 1969 and 1970, both studios were booked around the clock.

A leader in cutting edge recording technology. successful projects including James Brown's "I Feel Good", Aretha Franklin's "Young, Gifted and Black", & Derek & The Dominos "Layla". In early 1972 Studio C was completed, with landmarks including Fleetwood Mac's "Rumors" & the Bee Gees' "Saturday Night Fever". Demand required another studio so, Studio D, was built before the closing of the 1970's.

The 80's saw the retiring of the original Studio B to storage, & 1981 saw the construction of the lavish Studio E.

After several hands of ownership took place; the final purchase in 1999 occurred by The Hit Factory; which merged it's business' base of operations to Miami from New York; before its closing down in April 2005. The renamed facility in North Miami, Florida was now The Hit Factory Criteria Miami.
