Raum
The room is about 20 square meters with a smaller and a larger section. Recording and Mixing is done in the same room – so there is a flexibility and a good workflow in the production. I addition, there is an extra room where amps can be recorded. The whole studio is build as a „room in room-system“ and has been sound-optimized in cooperation with Universal Acoustics and the sound technician David Sievers. Here you can see a documentation and an inside of the studio:
