Neve, Putnam win technical Grammys

Honorees' contributions have 'enhanced the recording process'

AMS Neve and the late Bill Putnam have been selected to receive technical Grammy Awards for “contributions of outstanding technical significance to the recording field.”

The technical awards, announced Friday by Michael Greene, prexy-CEO of the Recording Academy, will be presented Feb. 22 at a special reception.

The 42nd annual Grammy Awards ceremony will be held Feb. 23 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

“The contributions of both AMS Neve and Bill Putnam have significantly enhanced the recording process, which has helped an entire generation of artists, engineers and producers forever expand the creative boundaries of recording music,” Greene said.

AMS Neve designed the first commercially recognized transistor recording and mixing consoles.

In recent years the company has introduced large-scale digital mixing consoles to most studios.

Bill Putnam, founder of United/Western Recorders, is considered a pioneer in recording studio acoustics and was among the first to use reverberation and echo for commercial recordings. He also developed the first multiband equalizers, conceived ambient microphone techniques and pioneered stereophonic recording.
