Our Story

For more than three decades, Sound On Sound Studios has been home to many of music’s most prolific and talented artists.


David Amlen establishes Sound On Sound Studios in the heart of Times Square on 45th Street, building a reputation both for himself and for the studio.


Sound On Sound merges with Right Track Recording at 168 West 48th and 509 West 38th Street in Manhattan to become Legacy Studios.
