Mastering is our speciality. We love using analog gear to sweeten your tracks! Analog gear and prestine digital converters are a great combination for a full, rounded transparent mix and master.
Hinterhof Records is a Studio and Label based in Vienna/Austria.
We have a nice and big good sounding recording room (30m^2) that we love to record drums in.
We do a lot of mixing and mastering at Hinterhof Records as well. You can check out our "Hinterhof Sessions" on Youtube to get an Idea of our work.

Interview with Hinterhof Records
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: From funk to pop to rock
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: We've been working from this studio for a few years now, doing a lot of recording, mixing and mastering. We specialised on analog gear and very good dry room acoustics. This way we can really hear whats going on in the mix.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: It's a mixture between recording, mixing and mastering. pretty balanced out. I like the variety.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I get inspired by musicians that know what they want and do everything to get there! Its the most fun to work with people that have a goal and work hard. I try to do the same, before i start any work, i want to know where im heading first.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A new perspective, lots of analog gear and hard work!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: don't waste too much time on a single instrument or sound. try to move on. try to keep perspective
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started piano as a little kid, learned guitar as a teenager and started several bands. when it was time to record noone ever knew what to do, so over time i started to learn how to record. I recorded my first EP in around 2006. I recorded my first full length album the year after (which actually never got finished because i was never happy with it). So i started sound engineering school here in Vienna. Have been doing Live and Studio engineering ever since (2008).
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: if i were stranded on an island im not sure i would need any gear at all :D neumann u49, neve 1073, 1176, api2500
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Try to find out if the provider is really interested in helping you and your project or just wants the money
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I would like to hear some references what you want to sound like and what you want to reach/express.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both! Analog can do some great to a well recorded song. If its not well recorded not even analog can save it :D Digital can be very precise and quick which is often important as well. Could not work with only one!
