Studio TourS

During the studio tours we visit former and current studio parts in the Hansa Studio building. As there are a lot of recordings and events going on we can’t guarantee to see all relevant parts constantly as productions have always priority of course. But there is no other way to see Hansa Studios, just with our tours.

STUDIO 1 & MIX ROOM – officially in use since 1980 and the part of the house that still runs under Hansa Studios corporate name, the biggest "fans" of this studio part are Depeche Mode. The legendary SSL 4000E console in “Hansa blue” is still in use there.

MEISTERSAAL (Master hall / Master room) – former studio 2/ “the big hall by the wall” – used as a studio since the 60’s and became Hansa Studio 2 in 1975. Not only David Bowie, U2 or Depeche Mode loved the special acoustic of the old big room – you can still feel the nice reverb there. During company events we show an entertaining multimedia presentation in the hall regarded to the colourful history of the building. Please see further info at menu PRIVATE TOURS.

EMIL BERLINER STUDIOS – former studio 3 is curently famous for analogue recording technique, using for instance a rare direct to disc vinyl recording system. Back in 1977 Iggy Pop’s LUST FOR LIFE album was recorded here.
