Best of both worlds

When I started to work in studios, things were really different. I am a 1980´s kid. So I started to work with tape machines, huge mixing consoles and beautiful E-mu Samplers. Since that days, technology has evolved. We are living in  a digital world now. Which means, we use virtual mixing consoles, virtual instruments, virtual faders … I love the blessings of the new technology. Still my heart beats for the old stuff, workflow and philosophy of sound and how to create exciting music.

My studio is an expression of that philosophy. I use modern equipment in combination with very charming legends from the old days of music production. Digital recording and editing here, E-mu Samplers and tube condenser microphone there. Even my virtual equipment is mostly based on the old days. SSL-Compressor, Neve-Equalizer, Yamaha CS-80 and many wonderful things more. I am addicted to gear, but no matter of that:

Its all about the song!
