Three different Studios in one spot - Studio 2 is my homebase as a resident engineer / producer.

And if you take a look at the gear listing or the photos, you might also understand, why ;-)

My own equipment is cased & ready for the next session!
When I'm working on a production at Dorian Gray Studios, my gear's certainly included in addition
to the studio-equipment already there - so we never run out of knobs and buttons to have fun with.

If you want further information about the studios or the creditlist (also impressive) please visit:

Digital world with analog feelings.

The studio 1 is one of europe's top adresses for recording & mixing.

96 Inline-Channel Solid State Logic C200 with 5.1 PMC MB2A XBD monitoring, high end & vintage outboard gear, 96i/o ProTools HD3, 24-Trk Studer A827, 2-Trk Studer A80 etc.

Managed by my former mentor Senior Audio Engineer Gerhard Woelfle, this is my favorite place for mixing my productions.

And the recording room is incredible for large sounding drums.

More than 20 years of recording history - redesigned in 2011.

These are the studios I supervise as a resident engineer & producer. Perfect for any type of bandproduction, because of up to 6 different sounding recordingrooms & bothes, which can be used simultaniusly for live tracking.

24-Inline-Channel SSL Duality SE (analog Automation, Total Recall, DAW-Control) with PMC IB1 monitoring, 32i/o ProTools HD3 with PrismSound converter, 24-Trk Studer A80 and many microphones, vintage & high end equipment and instruments.

And there is a small attic apartment.

Mastering (perhaps while still mixing at dorian gray studios) with PMC IB2 monitoring and Sadie workstation, custom Crookwood mastering desk, PrismSound converters and high end mastering compressors and equalizers from Weiss, Tubetech, PrismSound, Manley, Elysia and GML.

Mastering Engineer Dieter Pimiskern is always first choice for mastering any of my productions.

And not only in my opinion, the room in conjunction with the pmc's is the best sounding place you can imagine - so it's also a perfect spot for just listening to music.
