An audio recording is much more than just a snapshot. It allows the message, feeling, and emotions to be conveyed on a musical level and can positively influence the whole world.

A good sound recording depends on many factors. To name a few:

First and foremost, the artist’s performance is crucial. To facilitate this, we create the right atmosphere in the studio. Therefore, the most important thing is “GOOD VIBES.”

To record a beautiful sound, we need the appropriate instrument. As soon as the instrument or amplifier (e.g., electric guitar) is played, the sound is influenced by the room, which is very significant.

Now it becomes more technical: The choice of microphone is critical in determining the sound’s characteristics. It allows us to influence the future mix in this step and can simplify many things for us in the mix later on.

The microphone converts sound into an electrical voltage which is further amplified with a preamplifier. This also has an influence on the sound quality. Depending on what is desired, it can affect the sound; whether warm and soft or clear and bright, etc. A special case is the possibility of enriching the signal with harmonic distortion (overtones) to achieve more presence and assertiveness, or to use it as a stylistic device.

Before it is recorded by the recording device, the audio signal can be further optimized to adjust the analog-to-digital conversion optimally. This can be done by adjusting the frequency response and dynamic range of the signal.

For multitrack recordings, we use highly efficient analog-to-digital converters with a sampling rate of up to 192kHz. This allows for an exact representation of the analog signal in the digital domain.

Once this signal is saved as an audio file (.wav, .aiff), further processing in both the analog and digital domains is possible.

The recording room (Studio 1)

A recording room should above all sound good. Our recording room has few parallel surfaces to avoid flutter echoes. In addition, it has enough sound absorbers that work effectively throughout the frequency spectrum, ensuring an optimal reverberation time.

The room offers space for about 3-4 people on just under 15m² and is therefore suitable for smaller rhythm sections, solo instrumentalists, as well as for drums, overdubs, re-amping, etc.
