Home / Blog / / Les Paul, Godfather of Multitrack Audio Recording

Les Paul was a guitarist, songwriter, luthier and inventor. He invented Sound on Sound recording using an Ampex Model 200


In addition to inventing the solid body electric guitar, which bears his name, Les holds the patent for the 8-track tape recorder and several patents related to the guitar. Today’s musicians regularly credit Les with the birth of Rock and Roll because of his multiple recording innovations including reverb, echo, sound-on-sound, tape delay, over-dubbing, phase shifting and close miking. Les was fond of saying that the reason he invented so many things was because they weren’t available in a store. from lespaulfoundation.org
