In September 2018 I will open a new studio facility for hi-end analog stereo and stem mastering, 16 channel analog summing, as well as the restoration of historical records – 78s, 45s, 33s – and cassette tapes. Studio Schwebung will also have a dedicated space for recording. Both rooms feature custom acoustic designs and a selection of the very best analog gear and digital tools available.

Studio Schwebung is located in the Rhine valley next to a nature reserve, yet only 10 minutes by tramway to Bonn or 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.
