My mixing studio is about 25 square meters and has been acoustically treated by renowned acoustic engineer Sven Pirschel from Hamburg/Germany. The frequency response is superb with a tight bottom end. I love working in that room. Even in long sessions, it is possible to work there without my hearing getting tired.

The rest of my studio is tailored to my working needs with a balanced mix of digital and analog equipment.

Here I also fall back on a comprehensive arsenal of analog stomp box FXs.

This hybrid approach gives me the largest amount of flexibility by maintaining the benefits of every domain and still having full recall possibility.

Equipment I use:

  • Avid Pro Tools 12 HD System

  • Icon D Command with XMon Unit

  • Antelope Audio Converters

  • KS Digital Speakers

Benjamin Schäfer did a wonderful mixing job on Gentle Knife's second album. Not only by connecting the various threads in an album with a huge number of tracks for each song, but by providing a warm and full sonic picture which made our ideas stand out. Creative while loyal to the intentions. In addition he is a breeze to work with.
