You can rent Studio A and Studio B with or without an engineer.
High-End Recording, Mixing & Mastering
Studio A offers a 35m2 air-conditioned control room and two recording rooms.
All of the rooms are acoustically enhanced and built for purpose.
It has an analogue Soundtracs mixing board with 96 inputs and 32 routing busses.
The digital recording system offers 72 analogue inputs and outputs for recording and mixing.
For recording, mixing and mastering a selection of high-end tube outboard, digital outboard and plug-ins is available.
High-End Recording at a Low Budget
Studio B has a Tascam DM-4800 64 channel digital mixing board with total recall and a small recording room.
High-end recordings at a low cost are possible with individual recording set-ups that suits your requirements including for instance our Focusrite, Spl Premium and Avalon pre-amps and collection of Neumann microphones. 32 inputs and outputs provide you with all you’ll need for audio editing, post-production, sound design, composing but mainly for overdub recordings such as. vocals, guitar and bass. If you want to use your own DAW it will only take minutes to install the drivers of the digital board
and you can use it as an audio-interface working with you own prepared session.
Our spacious ‘relaxing’ area (80 m²) and open kitchen is available to you. A comfortable 3D television, music listening space and a large conference table for promotional, press and artistic meetings are part of the relaxing area.
For taking a break and relaxing between recordings there is a table tennis and table football.
High-End Recording for Low-Budget
You can rent Studio A and Studio B with or without engineer.
For those of you who want to engineer on your own, there will be a introductory briefing to help you set up your own individual recording situation.
If you want to bypass the desk we have a high-end solution using a front-end of external mic-pres.
The 8 x SPL Premium mic-pres and 8 mic pres of the Focusrite ISA 828 can be directly patched into the converters.
I founded Thommy Hein Sound Studios in 1987 while still active as a musician.
From 1987 until 1992 I also worked as a freelance engineer in many different studios but mostly in the legendary “Preußen-Ton” Studios where bands such as Die Ärzte, Einstürzende Neubauten, The Wire and Die Toten Hosen produced their records. This gave me the chance to work with many artists, bands and producers and experience their different approaches.
