D4 Studio is the most recent studio, finished in 2017.
From first plans to the final result took about 3 years.
Today the dedicated space for music production is as efficient and as beautiful as originally imagined.

Hardware in the studio
Vinsynth is a self designed and made analog modular synthesizer system. Due to his educational training (electronics degree), using Cwejman S1, falling in love with analog sound, and a grandfather who was highly involved in studio recording and building various old amplifiers, mixing consoles etc in the 60s, Vince built the Vinsynth in ????
It is a completely self built custom sized case and modules.
The rack isn't compatible with any modular system on the market ;).
The E7 studio was located in Sion - Valais - Switzerland. It was primarily an electronic music production powerhouse. It unfortunately burnt down in a fire in 2013.
The E7 studio room was designed to be a comfortable workspace with controlled acoustics and 3 seperate screens. A clean desk with direct access to all the tools needed for creative moments was a principal aspect. The wall mounted Genelec 1037C monitor speakers gave an almost "sound system" feeling at the same time as having a very precise and clear studio monitoring sound. The signal path from the computer to the speakers was made to stay the cleanest possible, using a pristine D/A converter LAVRY Blue.
Other working tools in the studio were some of the most wanted virtual analog hardware synthesizers, as well as a growing analog modular setup. More outboard processors like analog compressors and multi-FX were also present. The core of the setup is a solid quad-core Win7 system with the latest versions of Cubase, Ableton live and many others.
2 to 3 people could easily work together at the desk to collaborate on a project, and the room is comfortable with up to 5 people at one time. A vocal & acoustic instruments recording room was planned behind the main control room to offer many extended options on projects.
After 6 months + of self-building the studio and 2 years of use, a fire in the room next door destroyed the studio and the equipment within. This suspended any music production activities for many months while dealing with the damage and new studio build.
