If you are searching for a quality recording studio for music and speech in the amazingly
creative environment of the central downtown Berlin area- look no further: you have just found
The Peter Rahe Tonstudio (‘tonstudio’ is German for recording studio) offers the perfect
acoustic conditions to fully appreciate our modern technical inventory. We have long term
experience in all aspects of recording and mixing – from acoustic classical music to speech for
audio guides and educational facilities; and, from video sync to modern leftfield electronic
Our recording room (26 sq m) offers variable acoustic properties; the control room is visibly
connected with a classical recording window.
We specialize in recording acoustic instruments – a beautiful Yamaha Grand is also a
permanent feature of the live room, and immediately ready for your recording. A mobile
adjustable vocal booth can be set up upon request for very dry vocal recordings.
The control room follows the classic live-end / dead-end principle, offering a highly accurate
monitoring environment with a reverberation time of around only 0.3 seconds. The recording
room is relatively live; with the reverberation time resting – depending on the configuration –
between 0.4 to 0.6 seconds.
High end cabling connects the live room with the control room allowing 32 input and 16 return
channels. In addition, loudspeaker leads have been hardwired for hot reamping, live monitoring
CAT 7 Cables with a RJ45 patch bay can be used for patching MIDI and Network throughout
the entire facility.
Our main monitoring system consists of two Dynaudio BM 15A systems, which are driven by a
well tuned monitor management system. The monitor system has been calibrated according to
SMPTE RP 200:2002/ Bob Katz´ K- System.
All rooms are naturally lit by direct daylight and are ventilated via a mechanical ventilation
system with heat recovery (no AC = no draught, no dry air).
Here, we deeply believe in using green energy – all systems are powered with eco power (including this website!).
If you are carrying your gear in, you can reach our facilities by goods lift, straight from your
vehicle with dedicated parking available.
