Their goal with Sound Techniques was to create a more vibrant American sound than most British studios, and the varying ceiling heights afforded Wood a diversity of sonic options within a relatively small space.

Despite his domineering manner, Cale was very solicitous towards Nick, who seemed to be guardedly enjoying himself: his only choice was to relax and be carried along. Nick tuned his guitar for three minutes and didn’t say anything. Even Boyd has speculated that Drake felt that the track “got away from him.” However, it’s hard to square this supposition with Boyd, Wood, and Kirby’s shared insistence that Drake was willing to put his foot down in the studio, especially during the recording of Bryter Layter.

As with all the great studios in the era before excessive multitracking, the individual facets of a particular room gave each studio a unique sound, and the Sound Techniques live room certainly contributed to the great sounds it produced, with the high ceiling in the middle, the space under the office on the right–hand side that gave such a big string sound, and the sloping floor.
