Blueberry Buddha Recording Studios, Los Angeles, CA


Warm full beautiful sound.  Friendly.  Creative.

Blueberry Buddha Recording Studio is a home-based studio owned by Ken Lee near Encino, CA (North Los Angeles) that specializes in creating beautiful, organic recordings that capture your vibe, whether that's tracking or mixing.

I realize that everyone who has a mic and a computer can make a CD nowadays.  Click here for some reasons why you might still want to record here even if you are on a tight budget. 


As of 24 May 2017, I will no longer be doing Akai tape transfers. My machine is corroded beyond repair, and I currently have no intentions of purchasing another tape machine. Thank you very much for your support over the years, and apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

I've had either an Akai MG1214 or, for the past few years, this 14D rackmount tape machine for many years. I have been recording to Pro Tools for many years now, but still kept the Akai machines going because I kept getting asked to do tape transfers. That has come to an end, and I am without doubt one of the very last studios to offer that service. The end of an era.

We transferred over 450 tapes, sometimes bringing back beautiful memories to people. Thank you so much for your kind words and patronage over the years.
