In order to reach the best possible acoustics, Karlheinz Stegmaier and architect Ben Koziczinski have developed a special studio concept for us. Both of our Berlin studios are designed as fully floating rooms, so-called room-in-room concepts. This makes them especially well insulated for low frequencies and allows a short reverberation time. Thanks to deliberately installed diffusors, the rooms maintains a vivid sound without reproducing any reflections of the music. On top, a dimmable lighting and a silent air conditioning and ventilation system create a comfortable working environment.
Mastering- & Monitoring
Many of our mastering and monitoring gear has been produced or modified exclusively for us. This enables high-end signal paths and excellent sound results.
With our highly modified vinyl cut systems by Neumann, we reach distinguished cutting results. In order to adapt the sound as closely as possible to the visions of our customers, we offer all common brands of lacquer discs.
