Little Labs was founded in 1988 by me, Jonathan Little. I came from the San Francisco Bay Area in 1979 with a background in electronics, to be a Studio Tech in LA. The first Little Labs product I designed was the Microphone Preamplifier, which has recently been re-released as the LMNOpre with more features, but internally using the same discreet gain stages. Little Labs products are designed in the tower room of a house high in the Hollywood Hills. I have worked in the technical department of several top LA Studios including Conway Studios, where I was the Chief Tech, A&M studios (ten years), Village Recorder, Cherokee,and the now defunct Devonshire and Salty Dog studios. It is at these fine studios where I have refined my products with the help and feed back of truly the best recording engineers in the world.
