Drumrecording mit Jost Nickel

Jost Nickel is one of the top drummers in Germany and became widely known, in part, through his collaboration with Jan Delay. In our Studio 1, in collaboration with Meinl, video and audio were recorded for a total of 6 tracks from his new solo album, as well as several drum grooves.


ATTENTION, FOR AUDIO NERDS AND PERFECTIONISTS: In this video, Ralf Gustke (known for his work with Xavier Naidoo, Söhne Mannheims) plays quintuplet beats in Studio 1 of AFW Studios, while our developed STEREOBLADE MKIII motorizedly moves the overhead microphones. In the audio track of this video version, only the overhead microphones can be heard. A great example to compare the sound differences of various stereo microphone techniques.

Voicerecording with Stefan Gossler

"I like to move it, move it... Even if you don't know him, you probably recognize his voice. Actor and voice actor Stefan Gossler, aka the German voice of Jackie Chan, King Julien (Madagascar), and many more... Thanks for visiting AFW Studios, Stefan, it was a blast working with you :) ...coming soon to NETFLIX..."
