the studio is right where you need it

What is the essence of a recording studio? Is it the rooms or is it the technical equipment? Both, of course, apart from the history that resides in the studio. However, you can also make great recordings in completely different locations. Where the acoustics are better than anywhere else. Where the space inspires you and where you simply feel comfortable when you sing. Maybe even where no one has ever recorded an album before.

Rely on an experienced and friendly service provider that has heart and understanding with a focus on clear communication.

Selma's magic trick:

 

What it takes to get a super professional recording in such a room is you and our scalable mobile set!

Good planning and preparation make a recording session relaxed and promising. Here you are on the safe side with Selma Records and me, Stef Maldener, because you can count on the experience of over 20 years of production, studio and stage.

 

 

Feel free to call or email so we can discuss your project in an informal, no-obligation manner.

 

 

From full microphony through to headphones, I bring everything with me. Overdubs are also possible on the spot or wherever else.

And good monitoring is - of course - essential for artist* and engineer.


Finally, the mix is done in the in-house mixing suite in Augsburg's old town, where you are welcome to join the process as you wish or leave it completely up to me.
As an alternative to the desired location, we can also book a location for the recordings in my partner studio.


All prices and rates will be negotiated and agreed upon transparently before the work begins.

If necessary, I will also gladly assist in the search for funding opportunities!

... ok, a mobile studio then?

 

... featuring the scalable
recording set!

Microphonia

scalable recording set options:

 

 

  • simultaneous recording of up to 24 channels (max. 48 khz, 24 bit) or up to 16 channels (96 khz, 24 bit) or up to 8 channels (192 khz, 24 bit)
  • high-quality microphone preamps: 8 channels metric halo (1st generation), 8 channels audient asp008, 8 channels generic a/d converters synchronized to the clock of the metric halo 3d system for maximum transparency of the received signal
  • hardware modeling with state-of-the-art fpga system for different sound aesthetics from super clean to vintage
  • monitoring: up to 8 separate channels mono or 4 separate channels stereo (or any combination thereof) for the artists on headphones, each with or without click
  • additional sound sources, samplers, etc. can be integrated into the recording chain as desired, also possible as inserts on up to 8 inputs and outputs (with simultaneous use of up to 16 additional inputs and 8 headphone channels mono or 4 stereo)


the special feature of the system is its modularity. all input and output paths can be connected in any way, as it is only possible in software, but with a maximum of 1.5 ms practically latency-free like analog hardware. without clicks and pops and drop-outs.


the microphones shown are in the selma records inventory - plus a handful of others for special applications. just ask!


the mixing suite of selma records (formerly stereofreun.de) is based on the described metric halo system in combination with logic pro x on an imac with 24 gb ram (currently on catalina). a selected set of high quality plug-ins from waves, native instruments, metric halo, eventide etc. is at disposal. furthermore, selma records regularly uses: melodyne editor v5, spectralayers v8, native instruments maschine v2 with maschine studio hardware, emagic logic control, rtw primus multi analyzer and we got the terrific lexicon m300 from 1993 as our hardware reverb.

Technical stuff for those who want to know it in detail
