The subterranean recording studio for early music in Waldenburg (Baselland, CH) built in 1994 with a 390m3 cubature and 5m headroom allows even quiet instruments such as the lute or clavichord to be recorded independently of outside noise thanks to complete sound insulation. 

Die Akustik ist angenehm kurz, aber nicht trocken, was die Klangentwicklung der Instrumente im Raum begünstigt. Sie vermittelt a good playing feel and promotes the precise perception of the musicians among themselves. Das Studio eignet sich sowohl für Soloaufnahmen als auch für grössere Ensembles mit bis zu 15 Musikern bestens._cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

Good accessibility by public transport  (40 minutes from Basel) or car.
