The Riverside Studios are equipped with a symbiosis of analog treasures and state of the art digital components to guarantee a workflow with the best of both worlds.
All studios and control rooms are connected by network to ensure maximum versatility in the production process.
All rooms have air-condition, daylight and a variable lightning system and can be darkened as required.
Our largest recording space THE HALL has 86 m2 (925 square foot) of floor space with a height of 5,20 m and holds up to 35 musicians comfortably.
The excellent acoustic properties and fascinating aesthetic of our wooden acoustic wall elements enable you to create spatial experiences to the highest standards. Key elements of the space are the height adjustable drumbrella, which allows us to tune the room resonance to the instrument below it and the Steinway D-274 piano – an instrument of quality unparalleled by anything else.
Our extensive microphone collection encompasses the finest models, while our carefully selected loudspeakers provide equal clarity at the opposite end of the signal chain.
THE HALL also works as a perfect venue for our regular live concerts with an audience up to 80 listeners. Concerts can be recorded live and streamed online simultaneously.
