Robert Gebhard on SoundBetter

'Without music, life would be a mistake' writes Friedrich Nietzsche and I would say he was right. If you are also such a music lover, I would be more than happy to assist you with creating your own recordings that you can share proudly with the world.

More than 25 years ago I started a professional audio career. Working as a sound engineer for live events and in radio stations. I have a solid foundation in education on audio related topics. Went to the SAE (school of audio engineering), lernt the profession 'Radio and Television technician' and also finished an education with a diploma for IT in the direction Media. Then after I got children, I left the audio path and started to work in a big company in the healthcare sector. Besides the job, I started to build my own audio studio around 3 years ago. I worked on my own projects and also for other local musicians. It is so much fun to help with the music production, so I am eager to continue with it and further expand the business. After going through lots of ups and downs I had the opportunity to learn a lot and I am able now to deliver good quality mixes/productions. You can check that out by listening to the songs that I provided as examples.

Interview with Robert Gebhard

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Digital, when it comes to mixing, it obviously has lots of advantages. For playing live I use analog gear, or at least dedicated digital gear...

  3. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  4. A: I give the 'be happy or spend no money' promise. In case the client is not happy with the result, I will not charge any money.

  5. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  6. A: 1. a laptop with good hardware resources including the newest cubase pro version and all the fancy plugins and vst instruments (I hope this can count as 'one gear' ;-)) 2. my Beyerdynamic DT880 headphone (I assume it is better to use a headphone on a desert island) 3. my Neumann TLM 102 microphone 4. an external soundcard with an ASIO driver 5. uff, it seems five pieces are not enough, I assume it might be good to have a big bottle of water, furthermore a guitar and a keyboard with velocity sensitivity...

  7. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  8. A: it is important to listen to songs that the provider was involved with to see if the style and taste meets the expectations.

  9. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  10. A: I am always amazed how important it is to use an EQ on Reverb.
