Founded in 1986 by bass player Manne Pokrandt and keyboardist Egge Schumann to create commissioned music in a back building.
Technically, a Commodore C 64 was the heart of production. With only 64k of main memory, this computer could at least record and play back MIDI signals and had to be synchronized to a tape machine to enable audio such as vocals or acoustic instruments.
In the beginning, a large part of the technology had to be rented before the first productions brought in the funds to invest in technology that had to be completely organized from West-Berlin. There was a wall in Berlin and we were in the east, the communist part of town.
Shortly before the Berlin Wall came down, we moved into my apartment, converted a room, and bought an Atari computer.
A new owner wanted to completely renovate the house. So why not look for a real recording space now?
The next 17 years the studio was in Berlin-Buchholz and since 2017 in the current studio in Pankow Park.
Have a look at HISTORY to see, how we changed the room from a conference room to a recording studio in 2017.
The new room is perfectly suited for live band recordings, multi-tracking, post-production and overdubbing instruments and voice-overs.
Plenty of daylight, a Yamaha grand piano, see all technical details in German. (We don't have to translate "Neumann microphone")
But better come to have a coffee or a beer and see for yourself. You're welcome !
