TODAY'S GEAR FOCUS // SHADOW HILLS DUAL OPTOGRAPH

Absolutely worth the 10 month wait. This rare unit is just massive - outside and inside. We use it as buss compressor for almost every mixing and mastering session. Also great for slight vocal compression during recording. Everything sounds tighter, bigger and more expensive...

TODAY'S GEAR FOCUS // KORG KRONOS 88

Matthias' personal statement: «In my career as musician, especially as piano player, I haven't heard a piano sound like this. Every subtle nuance of a Steinway Grand is there. Close your eyes and play - it sounds like the real thing!».

TODAY'S RECORDING HINT

We don't like the term «we'll fix it in the mix», but aim for «if it sounds right, it is right». Our recording focus is finding the right mic, cable, preamp and recording position. Now, if you have a good song and some great musicians, nothing should go wrong here...

FRIDAY ARTIST SPOTLIGHT // TOM LANE

Tom and Matthias feel like personal and musical brothers - since they first met back in 1994. Lane's CDs need to be heard - the newest «Freely» production reflects some of his great passion for God, people and good music. More about Tom Lane and his ministry: www.tomlanemusic.com

TODAY'S GEAR FOCUS // PRO TOOLS

Everything we produce is recorded with the best analog materials, routed straight into ProTools. This gives us endless possibilities and total recall during mixing, which is very important for the more complex projects. We prefer analog summing using Shadow Hills' «The Equinox».

Working at Matt Heimlicher's place is like a vacation. The man knows what he's doing and the place is magic, specially in summer - an inspiration for every artist. Go check it!
Chris von Rohr // Bass Player and Founder «Krokus», Songwriter and Producer // Solothurn
With Heimlicher you not only get his amazing studio, great coffee and unreal hospitality - but also one of the most brilliant and creative minds around! Truly an unbeatable experience sonically, musically and personally. It's a very inspiring spot on the map of the world and one of my favorite places to work, I can check in and relax knowing I'm in very capable and trustworthy hands, always!
Tom Lane // Musician, Singer, Songwriter // Nashville
Beautiful view, good food and coffee at every hour, crazy and great musicians, cats and cows on the grass, exotic compressors and microphones... are things that maybe can be found also in other studios... but just a few can boast the deep passion that Matthias puts in every single detail of a production. And the warmth that you may feel entering the Heimlicher house... This, for me, is the difference between Matthias' world and most other producers.
Stefano Rigamonti // Musician, Composer, Arranger // Asti
For the production of my debut album I was searching for a producer who would mix in more than sonic quality. I was looking for someone able to catch the essence of my music and bring it to the point. Matthias Heimlicher was able to fulfill this task with the required sensibility and passion - and furthermore he became a valued friend in my life.
Joe Sciacca // Musician, Singer, Songwriter, Arranger // Zurich
I've met, more than ten years ago, one of the best engineers and producers in Europe in my opinion and I must admit that during my twenty years of career I've never did any producing and recording sessions like at his warm and peaceful place (even the cows around would agree). Matthias Heimlicher is a really great musician, and beyond of his multiple talents, I really appreciate the friend. Can't wait for the next session!
Jean-Marc Lerigab // Singer, Songwriter, Music Composer and Producer // Paris
I know Matthias for over 20 years now. We have recorded many, many projects together and I'm a huge fan of his work. I love his sound and his passion for great music and he was involved in some of the greatest musical experiences in my life. When it comes to recording or mixing, he is the guy to work with.
Lothar Kosse // Musician, Singer, Composer, Producer // Cologne
I've been producing and recording in many studios all over Europe and the US continent, but the place where I gave my best singing performances was at Heimlicher's. Perfect sound, gorgeous surrounding and most of all, fun and lots of laughs. This just led us to a Platinum Award ;)) Thanks Matt
Myra Maud // Singer, Composer // Hamburg, Paris
Ma collaboration avec Matthias dure depuis de 10 ans. Le son «Heimlicher» a été à chaque fois à la hauteur de mes espérances. Cette pâte sonore, fruit d'un doux mélange entre rigueur et humour, entre efficacité et temps d'écoute, a construit ma conception du son et accompagné mes projets les plus fous. Ajoutez à cela la confiance au-delà de tout, une vision et une foi partagées et vous devinerez le pourquoi de notre amitié.
Denis Riedinger // Musician, Composer, Arranger, Producer // Strasbourg
Recording my debut album at Heimlicher's top-notch studio with some of my biggest musical heroes was a unique and unforgettable experience! Everyone involved loved the state-of-the-art gear as well as the warm vibe in the studio, the incredible alpine scenery and the gorgeous hospitality and cooking. I can warmly recommend this gem of a studio!
Vlada // Singer, Songwriter, Musician // New York, Aarau
Matt and I go back a long way, and though we rarely see each other, it's always great to hear about someone who has been keeping his standards through all those years. If consistency and perceverance in the music business are traits of trade, then Matthias definitely has them both. He's been and still seems to be going strong. He most likely would make more money selling cars - but for anybody involved with him, it's more fruitful if he drives his studio console - and by far less dangerous!
Ron Kurz // Recording, Mixing, Mastering Engineer, Producer // Hardstudios // Winterthur
To work with Matthias Heimlicher is always a valuable musical journey. I know that all my projects are in safe hands and will be implemented carefully. The ambience and the wonderful surroundings are a unique place to be creative and one has the feeling of being in a world of its own.
