The Studio

With 240sqm of studio space, divided into an 85sqm recording room with modular acoustics, two adjoining recording rooms and an Iso/Vocal booth as well as two control rooms, we are well equipped for larger live sessions. With about 30 custom-made mobile acoustic elements, the room sound can easily be adapted to the individual needs of the session. In addition, our separate studio living room with a bar and cooled drinks offers enough space to give even larger bands the opportunity to relax in a pleasant atmosphere, either Between takes, or at the end of a long studio day.

Equipment and Technology

The technical concept of the studio: a “front-end” signal chain, which creates a warm and powerful sound through exquisite microphones and mic preamps, that is then recorded with digital precision. There is also a large selection of analogue instruments, ready to play.

In the mix, we mostly rely on digital technology – and thus we are able to execute our productions with “Total Recall”, respond to the creative workflow of the artist as best as possible, while keeping the production costs at an affordable level (also by the strict limitation of high-maintenance analog studio technology).

Also drum tech and drummer. Actually, trained electrician, but now skillfully works the controls, if he is not on tour with his band “mattes”. Got most of the German “Badesalz“ comedy-skits memorized.

Creative-minded, as well as singer and songwriter of the band “mattes”. Writes a lot on our blog and assist with a billion little things. His impulsive creative feedback can be annoying, but usually hits the right nerve.
