In September 2018 I will open a new studio facility for hi-end analog mastering, 16 channel analog summing, as well as the restoration of historical records – 78s, 45s, 33s –, cassette tapes and sound for film.

Studio Schwebung features a linear acoustic design and some of the very best analog and digital processors available, a selection made with 25 years of personal work experience in first class studios around the world.

Studio Schwebung is located in the Rhine valley next to a nature reserve, yet only 10 minutes by tramway to Bonn City and 20 min to Cologne center. We’re around the corner from Can’s legendary Inner Space Studio and some minutes away from where Conny Plank’s Studio used to be. In case you are planning to visit for an attended project, our house has a guest room.
