  • The Studio

    • Recording room

    • Control room

    Orthogonal Records offers a relaxed and nice atmosphere paired with highest professionality. The studio has a 30 square meter recording room and a 15 square meter control room, both offering elaborately treated acoustics. The acoustics in the control room conforms to professional studio standards, thus allowing to objectively judge every mix. It also offers enough space and comfort to discuss a mix with a whole band. The recording room has been optimised for acoustic instruments such as drumsets, guitars and of course vocals. By using mobile absorbers and gobos the acoustics is additionally shapeable for each special situation. We have the possibility to record 16 tracks simultaneously, which means we can do live recordings of complete bands as well as overdubs.

  • Our Services

    We offer any service either as a package deal with fixed time frames or on an hourly basis. For definite quotations it is necessary to talk about your expectations. Therefore, we ask you to contact us and if possible arrange a face to face meeting. In the case of online mixing it is also possible to arrange a skype call.


    Our complete offer for all those who want their songs to be recorded, mixed and produced by us. This means we would also intensely work on the details of your songs to squeeze-out even the last drop of their potential.

    Recording & Mixing

    We are responsible for recording and mixdown and will work on any aspect of those two important steps. However, the production will be done by an external producer or by the artist.

    Mixing only

    If you happen to have already recorded your songs this offer is for you. It's also possible to book an online mixing where the greatest flexibility is ensured. You don't even need to come to the studio for that offer. Communication will be via skype, e-mail, instant messenger or anything else you can suggest. We just ask for your understanding, that depending upon your recorded material we reserve the right to refuse your mixing only job or at least suggest a new recording in our studio to raise the quality of the end product. The reason for that is that compromises regarding sound quality won't help neither you as an artist nor us as a studio.


    We are also able to do mastering work for you. However, we only recommend that if someone else mixed your songs. In the case that we mixed your songs we strongly suggest to let someone else do the mastering work to be able to benefit from the important third party quality check. We are working together with experienced mastering studios and can arrange external mastering for you.


    We are working together with people in band photography and artwork and can offer individual packages for you. Experienced session musicians are also at our disposal. Should you need any other offer that is not explicitly stated here please do not hesitate to contact us.
