The MPS studio is a living monument. The first-class sound of the rooms and recording technology have earned this historic venue a legendary reputation worldwide, not only in the field of jazz, but also classical, world music and avant-garde.

Like the stars

Many international musicians* have made top-class recordings in this studio: Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, Joachim Kühn, Lee Konitz, Friedrich Gulda, George Duke, Singers Unlimited, Dave Pike Set, Hans Koller, Cecil Taylor, Albert Mangelsdorff, Mark Murphy, Volker Kriegel, Jean Luc-Ponty, Baden Powell, John Taylor, Wolfgang Dauner, Charly Antolini and many others.


Most Perfect sound

With a lot of space in the recording room for studio productions and a separate drum room, the MPS studio has enough space for professional sound recordings. The large control room still houses the analog studio equipment as well as the possibility of digital recording. A lounge area and tea kitchen/bar round out the studio space, providing an exceptional, welcoming atmosphere in this special historic location.


Bösendorfer Grand Imperial

For piano recordings, the legendary Bösendorfer Grand Imperial concert grand has been available since 1977, producing a great expressionistic sound. Personally selected by Friedrich Gulda, it was not at all easy to get the instrument, which weighed over half a ton, into the studio. Parts of the staircase had to be dismantled before that.


From analog to digital

Currently, analog recording on 2-track tape is offered in addition to digital recording. In the foreseeable future, analog recordings with the 24-track Ampex, as well as 4-track Telefunken will be available again. The analog mixing console is an in-house production of SABA and with its Sitral cassette technology designed for 24 tracks.

A large selection of new as well as historical microphones leaves nothing to be desired.
