Robbie Williams at Elbphilharmonie Hamburg

Breathtaking, energetic and pure magic!

Robbie Williams at Elbphilharmonie Hamburg

Projects · It was a great pleasure mixing the audio for the Telekom Live Stream alongside Robbie Williams' producer Richard Flack.

An extraordinary event - the artist's performance, the sound, the vision… a total work of art that will resonate with me for a long time.

Whilst we mixed live at the studio inside the Elbphilharmonie Concert Hall with a spectacular view of the stage, Erik Gierich mastered 'live and remote' in the acoustically perfect, brand new Studio Krauthausen in Cologne. Recording and technical management by Sven Raff.

Thank you Matthias Baumgartner, Lars Boelker and your crew at the ´Elphi´ for your great support.
And of course a big Thank You to Telekom Deutschland and Live Nation for continuously relying on our experience and expertise.

Lollapalooza 2022

Projects · Many thanks to Live Nation Hamburg and Telekom Germany for inviting us to manage the broadcast sound on North and South main stages at the Lollapalooza/Berlin 2022 festival.

Our new generation of talented engineers took full control of the faders remotely and at the venue. Erik Gierich and Alexandr Sitnikov (pictured) Remotely Mastered Live from Ballsaal Studios/Berlin whilst Jonas Gehrmann, Thomas Geiger, René Pinnau with Markus Winter and Björn Daheim assisting handled the audio at the venue. Head of IT was Karsten`Kasi`Heyn.

Broadcast Sound was produced by Peter Brandt, Charlie Bauerfeind and Sven Raff.

Many acts used our new Pre-Production mixing service which guarantees that the artists sound great from the very first note, even without a soundcheck.

Our new Pre-Production service combined with Remote Mixing/Mastering puts our broadcast sound quality into a class of its own and reinforces the fact that Mobile Sound Trucks are now a thing of the past.

Berlin Hamburg Remote

Telekom Streetgig Klassik

Projects · In Memory Of Tobias Lehmann.

Some years ago, this would have been my personal nightmare:

The scenario involves some of the best talent in the world playing Beethoven in the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg. It would be my job to deliver a live sound quality that represents the incredible ability of this orchestra. And I am controlling everything 250 kilometres away.

 Today, things have changed; ‘remote control' is a regular occurrence – as it allows for many more benefits in quality, technology and budget.

 I’m now sitting in the best possible environment; Teldex Studios in Berlin and I’m with my renowned colleague and multiple Grammy winner, Tonmeister Tobias Lehmann. We’re working live and remote, but together we craft a live sound that has an enhanced dynamic and detail.

 We produced Street Gig Classics for Telekom Magenta and mixed the whole show remotely.

The difference in quality was audible for everyone to hear. Once again, the Remote Recording workflow added to the production value whilst saving time, travel costs and reducing our carbon footprint.

Since we refined our remote tech stack, we were even able to produce the whole show using consumer level internet and a mix of 5G, DSL and fibre connection. I’m stoked to see what we can achieve next with our remote system. We’re just at the beginning!

And many thanks to Tobias and Team Teldex. It was an honour once again to have you in the crew! And thanks again to Telekom Deutschland and Live Nation for using our Remote Recording, Mixing and Mastering process again.

Beethoven X Artificial Intelligence meets Remote Mixing.

World Premiere

Beethoven X Artificial Intelligence meets Remote Mixing.

Projects · On behalf of Telekom Deutschland and Live Nation, Remote Mixing recently produced the broadcast sound for the world premiere of the Beethoven KI Project and once again, set another milestone in remote control of high-quality production.

Whilst Dirk Kaftan conducted the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn performing movements three and four of the AI Project and the eighth Beethoven Symphony, we mixed the music streaming sound in real time in the ideal, acoustically calibrated control room of Tonstudio Boecker in the neighbouring city of Cologne.

Our Remote Recording Network Hub - powered by Riedel ROC - transported audio, video, communication and control data over secure connections. Consumer internet was used with a mix of Telekom 5G, DSL and fibre connection.

Our Team:
René Möller(Teldex) - Tonmeister
Peter Brandt - Balance engineer
Sven Raff - Recording engineer
Oliver Voges - Recording engineer
Karsten `Kasi`Heyn`(Riedel) - IT and communication engineer
