Endorse Thomas Korge - Magic Masters
  1. Review by Volker Barber
    starstarstarstarstar
    by

    I first met Thomas "Tommy" Korge as in house mixing engineer mid 80ies, when I recorded at the hottest Rock Studio in Town- Hotline Studios Frankfurt - We later on worked together as a producer/mixer team at Artlab Studios for chartbreaking Dancefloor and Pop projects.
    We always had a great vibe and Tommys expert knowledge, fine ear, and great taste in music made long hours work seem short. He is known for constant great quality due to his long lasting "classic" sound.
    He is great fun to work with and he gives a lot of bang for the buck.

  14. A: Meeting People and their Music, their Ideas and Feelings

  15. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  16. A: Levels - most Questions are about Levels. Since digital hates "Overs", I always recommed to be careful with Levels...

  17. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  18. A: "We fix it in the ...." Replace ... by "Mix" or "Mastering". Try to get it right before every next step. Neither Mastering, nor Mixing are Stages to fix things.

  25. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  26. A: I started as Recording Engineer in the early 80s. Freelanced in some of the top Studios in Germany. Early 90s I started Dolphin Studios, close to Frankfurt. Magic Masters, my recent Studio, was found in 1996.

  35. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  36. A: To find the right balance...

  37. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  38. A: Like the Studio´s name says: Magic ;-)

  39. Q: What's your typical work process?

  40. A: First of all I ask my Customer a lot of Questions to get as much Information as possible. After that I listen to all Songs to identify the strongest and the weakest.

  43. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  44. A: I am taking Inspiration out of every Production I like.
