Hansa Studios: By the Wall 1976

Hansa studio berlin

After taking my time climbing to the studios, I came upon the door and was greeted by an unsmiling short-haired man with glasses who ushered me past the threshold. A fast and high-quality execution of your project goes without saying. I don't know if normal people can hear it or feel it, but this studio has a unique sound. Whatever you needed you could get there, any time of day. Because you'll hear the difference. Do you have personal projects? Let us know your special wishes and ideas and also check out our menu.

U2 Travelguide: Hansa Studios

Our well-equipped studios are located at Potsdamer Platz, in the center of Berlin. I write, arrange, and produce projects for them, and we come here to the studio and record them. As I did this, I dreamily imagined all the times Bowie and Iggy walked these exact same stairs, stoned out of their minds. Two of them are still in the building — one of them was sold later. In 2018, the studio was the subject of a documentary feature by filmmaker titled 'Hansa Studios: By The Wall 1976-90' which aired across Europe on Sky Arts and Sky Arte.

The Day I Was Left Alone in Berlin's Hansa Recording Studios

It was just a very dark and dirty area. We've always had guys who know every cable inside and out. Then Pro Tools came out with their 888 interfaces; but the first thing for me was the Atari. I still think it's the best you can do for drums, vocals, and guitar, if you have the time and knowledge. It was so loud; the whole building was shaking for two weeks! They hung microphones out of all the windows to get the sound of the city at the exact same time they were recording the song, which was a super idea. Both Bowie and Pop let the city seep into their music. The roots of Schlager are quite old.

Hansa Tonstudio, Berlin

This team has been involved in a vast number of successful productions, for example Lou Bega's world hit 'Mambo No. He worked on all the fun stuff in the '80s; he made the first Nina Hagen records when she came to West Berlin. Today all kind of music is produced. With a real gun, through the door, and then they sampled the sound and used it for a snare drum. It has a lot of marble; it's small and very reflective.

Hansa Studios: the West Berlin studio where everyone from David Bowie to Depeche Mode recorded music

The building was originally built as a club house for the construction trade guild in 1910-1913. The control room houses the finest Neumann console that guarantees superb sonic quality. They took all of the wood, the acoustic absorbers and diffusers, from the old Studio One, and then put them in here. Studio 2 is now once again called Meistersaal, is located on the first floor, and can be hired for all kinds of events. The film is bursting with anecdotes — including one about Bowie hiding under a mixing desk for fear of being shot by East Berlin guards. Hansa might be smaller today than in the '70s and '80s, but it remains one of the biggest and most important studios in Germany, and still attracts a host of domestic and international artists — for its history, its technical excellence, and, not least, for the sound that comes out of these halls. I'd write a string piece for a song or play the piano.

Hansa Records

Every time I go downstairs and open the door to The Hall I'm reminded that it could still be one of the best studios. There's still so much great gear in here though. Meanwhile, the Meistersaal, noted for its outstanding acoustics, was used not only for light music productions but also for classical music recordings. Hansa Studio Merchandise We offer in cooperation with Hansa Studios their official merchandising in our online. How often do you work with tape these days? I love how Michael Ilbert recorded drums for The Hives in there, which sound enormous. As he walked down each floor the shaking became more intense. Millions of records have been sold annually since the '50s.
