Hansa Tonstudio is a recording studio located on Köthener Strasse in Berlin, Germany. It was known as 'Hansa Studio By The Wall', because it was close to the Berlin Wall, and it ranks among the most wanted studios in europe.
Apart from the carpeted, low ceiling and very wide live room, there is a connection to the second live space: the meistersaal. Special wall treatment makes this space very silent. The spacious Meistersaal and the tight sounding live room have witnessed many legendary recordings throughout the decades by a.o. David Bowie, Depeche mode, Iggy Pop and U2.
Recordings were made using 4 DPA 4006 omnidirectional microphones. A genelec 1031 played back the sweeps.
