Studio / Audio Lab

 

Concept

The concept of our studio is based on a combination of a digital audio workstation (DAW) with a selection of traditional outboard instruments and processors. Authentic sounds and specific unique imperfections of historical synthesizers, early samplers, and effect devices can hardly be emulated in detail by means of virtual instruments and plug-ins. Hence, we combine both worlds, employing the advantages of a modern DAW platformwhile preserving the uniqueness of "old-school" equipment.
