This 61m2 control room is a masterpiece in acoustic design. Realised like the rest of the studio, from the ground up and with no spare in expenses by nothing less than the famous Concept-A firma in Münich, this room features one of the widest and most accurate sweet spots in Berlin that is just perfect for mixing and mastering. Indisputed kings of the room are two B&W Nautilus N802 floor-standing speakers, legendary icons for sound purity. This installation has been blessed by B&W in person, whose technicians said: (quote) "This is quite possibly the best-sounding room we've ever heard for our famous N802." Filled with only the best-quality analog outboard, the room is also perfect for events and workshops when even more than 25 people can be put together to listen and learn. Last but not least, the stunning view of the river Spree is a one-of-a-kind, and during sunny days the sunlight reflecting on the water creates a fascinating game of lights over the ceiling.
Our main live room is one of those rooms that were born with a bit of magic. The right ratio between the three dimensions made this space sound amazing even when completely empty in its full 48m2. We tuned it to keep a warm and sustaining reverb tail that is never muddy or resonant, and gives acoustic instruments more body and detail. This room features variable-geometry panels that work as diffusers or absorbers, allowing the engineer to fine tune the response of the room. This works wonders for instruments with strong transients such as drums and brass, but also singers and choirs can benefit from the added high-frequency texture.
Our second live room (or "red room" as someone likes to call it these days) features a completely different room tone: a shorter reverb tail and more pronounced early reflections make this space great to get heavy snares or in-your-face drum sounds for a modern, aggressive and punchy style. This room is also incredible for vocals and guitar amps, or even as a producer area. The large glass connects every musician visually, even if they are completely isolated from the other room.
But there's more: producers can sit here and watch their band rehearse while getting a dedicated slate mix or, since this room is also connected directly to the other live room, it may act as a secondary control room. The vast selection of vintage synthesizers is also a gold mine of inspiration for any production that requires the ultimate keyboards sound.
All rooms have dedicated and independent forced air circulation and air conditioning. Guests can use unlimited and fast wifi connection while all the rooms have multiple Gigabit ethernet sockets for wired network connectivity. The studio also features a dedicated machine room (also equipped with air conditioning) in addition to storage areas and restrooms.
Our spacious lounge hosts a stunning view over the Spree, background music from our ceiling speakers and a relaxing area to chillout and jam. Fancy a great espresso or a latte macchiato? The kitchen area is at your complete disposal, even if you are hungry or simply want to have a snack in-between sessions.
Located in Oberschöneweide within the Berlin district of Treptow-Köpenick, Fuseroom Studio is part of the famous Rathenau Hallen. The studio is positioned at the first floor of the building closest to the river Spree: this gives us the privilege to enjoy an unobstructed, stunning and relaxing view of the river itself and the nearby garden areas, with passing boats and an open view to catch the most of a sunny day or a stunning Berlin sunset.
The building is listed under monument protection and the whole complex is considered the largest industrial monument in Europe. It's here that the first parts of power plants were manufactured during the electrification era. After the GDR, the industrial sector collapsed and the premises were later on converted to a Center for Culture and Technology, now hosting a variety of artist ateliers, workshops and studios.
