State certified audio engineer. Music is personal. With me, know-how meets passion and dedication
I am a 33 years old trained and passionate mix and mastering engineer from Switzerland (Zürich) with over 15 years of experience. Music is something very personal. And that's how I treat my clients' music. Only the best is good enough. I make this claim on myself. Communicating with the customer is therefore a high priority. With a mix of analog and digital tools, your songs will be able to assert themselves qualitatively on all digital platforms, radio, tv, etc. I look forward to work with you.

The best audio-engineer in town. He has the best analog and digital equipment. Your music (or what ever audio stuff you're going for) will sound professional for the best price available on the market. If you have a special wish he will be able to help you out. Also his knowledge for music is very great.
All the best Beni!
Got my song in time and I was amazed how much Beni still got out of it. You can see his love for detail and music, which is very important to me personally.
WavelabStudios is the perfect provider and contact when it comes to unbeatable value for money in recording, music engineering, mixing and mastering for your songs. Beni Kohler is a very friendly, open and professional person with a love for art and details. His work is very satisfying and I personally keep going back to WavelabStudios to take my music to the next level.
Beni was always focused and knew exactly where I wanted to go with my song. Very uncomplicated and reliable. I will be mixing and mastering my songs exclusively with him in the future.
Highly recommended!! Beni is very personable and works with full dedication for every project.
He puts all of his experience and passion into music. He gets the best out of every sound,
whether with digital or analog devices: His mixes and masters have warmth and love in them.
Interview with Wavelab Studio
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I take pride in every project my clients undertake. Especially when I see that the customers push the project further. Hearing the self-mixed and mastered song on the radio or TV is a good feeling. But even just having satisfied customers gives me a lot of satisfaction.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on 3 different songs from 3 clients. I like to work back and forth on different songs. Makes the work more varied and helps to refresh the ears
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not until now. But I am also new to this platform :-) So time will tell
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Analog gives me something to touch and some fine tuning that I like. Some devices give me exactly the sound I want. A plugin, however, gives me instant recall capability which I sometimes miss on my devices. In the end, both worlds combined are great for workflow and creativity.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That in my eyes (or ears) he always gets the best possible product on time. I am aware that much in this area is also a matter of taste. But I give in principle no work out of which I am not 100% satisfied. I owe that to the customer and to myself. The idea that there is a song out there that I am not satisfied with, gives me a headache. But in the end, the customer is king. Even if I have to make changes I don't like. Music is still taste Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I like the exchange with customers and that I can be creative. And that I can immerse myself in music all day. Its a dream come true
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: They ask if they also need expensive equipment to achieve results like mine. My answer is always that the person behind the equipment makes the decisions and settings, not the equipment. The expensive equipment is just an expensive tool with which I know exactly what result I can achieve with it. Similar results can be achieved with plugins or cheaper equipment. Provided that the person behind it knows how to deal with it. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: When I tell people what I do who have no idea about my work as an audio engineer and just mention the word music studio, they immediately think I am a DJ or producer. It's very difficult to explain to people that a song wouldn't sound the way they hear it every day without a mix and mastering engineer.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask for the potential project and give initial constructive input or ideas even before a service has been provided. I am interested in potential customers.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: First, listen to my reference songs. If you like what you hear then we will put together a great song
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My computer, of course. Without it, my other equipment won't work either. Then the SSL Fusion and my Komplete Kontrol S88 Keyboard
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: In 2006 I started to be interested in studio technology. At that time I was already making music myself. But then I felt more comfortable in the background at the mixer and made a lot of recordings for my artist environment. At the same time, I soaked up everything in the audio engineering area like a sponge. Everything self-taught. In 2015 I decided to do the whole thing professionally and set up a new studio and advertise my service. From then on I was allowed to do recordings, mixings and masterings for a large number of customers. In 2017 I successfully completed a state-certified audio engineer degree.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: open minded. i am not a fan of categorization. Today I'm celebrating a tough trap banger. Maybe a ballad tomorrow
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: as much as possible. No matter with whom. You never stop learning. Even from people who you think they have less experience bring other experiences with you from which you can learn. But having a cup of coffee with Chris lord Alge exchanging experiences would be great :)
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Variety and unique feature. Include Earcandy and things you don't expect
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I mainly work in hip hop / rap. Occasionally, however, also to rock-pop and electronic music. I also compose and produce for advertising, tv and radio
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I think my friendly and uncomplicated appearance, as well as my reliability. i treat every project with the necessary respect
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: For me personally it is important not only to give a song added value through the process, but also to add things that the customer does not expect and enrich the song. I want to be able to positively surprise the customer again and again. Depending on the song, these can also be very small, simple things that still have a major impact on the song.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Superficially and without tech talk, as follows: At the beginning of the mixing process I listen to the song raw or in a rough mix 3 to 4 times to get a feeling for the song. After that I usually know where I want to go with the song. After several processes I always switch to the raw mix to make sure that I have taken the path I intended to go. Breaks and a healthy distance from the song are essential. During the mastering process, I always switch between a song that I'm already familiar with and that feels similar to the new song
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My setup is constantly evolving because there is always something that I can use and it will probably never develop completely haha. But I have a hybrid setup. 70% of the mixing process is in the box with plugins and 30% is done via analog devices. My mastering chain is built almost entirely analog. Except for small detail work.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Alot. And also from different genres. I mainly work in the hip hop area, but for example I like cat stevens extremely well, or classical music because I grew up with this music too. I like Compositions from Max Richter or Hans Zimmer. Jaycen Joshua, Chris lord alge, Michael Brauer, Jimmy Douglas, are just a few of the many engineers who inspire me
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am mainly hired for mix and mastering jobs
