Trident Studios was a British recording and mastering facility, originally located at 17 St. Anne's Court in London's Soho district. It was constructed in 1967 by Norman Sheffield and his brother Barry. Cutting engineers [a=Bob Hill (9)] ([a=Bobil]), [a=Ray Staff] & [a368590] were employed at Trident in the 1970s. Trident Studios was sold in December 1981. It was bought by its senior engineer, [a=Steve Short], along with three other investors. During the following four years the studios worked under different names until 1985, when [l=Tape One] bought the studios and renamed them to [l=Audio One]. Also credited as "Trident, London, England" or "Trident Studios, London". Side note: In 1986, Short bought out the other investors and opened Trident 2, a 25.000 sq. ft. converted theater as recording environment in the heart of the city of London. The current residing business [url=http://www.tridentaudiopost.com/] Trident Sound Studios [/url] which opened in the same building in 1993 was also named in recognition of the original Trident Studios.
