Christoph: We record our albums with Timo Hollmann in the studio. He simply understands our sound very well. This is of course a great advantage for working with a mixer in the studio.
Poschi: The way we do it is of course that we send test recordings from the rehearsal room to the studio for reference. And Timo also came to the rehearsal to listen to the new songs live beforehand. This makes it easier to transfer from the rehearsal room to the studio.
Torsten: In principle, we record all instruments live in one room in the studio at the same time and thus create a lot of rehearsal room atmosphere. We use as little digital equipment as possible. We do all the effects ourselves. We're lucky with Timo because he likes to experiment as we do. The megaphone you hear in one song is a real megaphone in front of the microphone, not a digital effect. And when he says, "unzip and zip up your jacket in front of the microphone" or "scratch the fan with the microphone", we try it out. In the end, an interesting effect comes out of it.
Christoph: With our music, the mixer has to have a good idea of what he/she is doing. Many frequencies are combined that have to be picked apart. That's hard work for the equaliser.
Poschi: We couldn't record in such a way that all of us record individually and then go to mixing. That's not possible. We have to create this energy of interaction in the studio and for that, we have to be in a room.
