About

After successfully participating in Musikmesse 2017 and 2018, this year, we are will be organizing the Studioszene 2019 as an independent community event. On September 6th and 7th, the first Studioszene will take place at XPOST in Cologne, Germany. Studioszene is the community & workshop platform that brings recording, mixing, mastering engineers and producers as well as studio equipment and software manufacturers together. Over the course of two days, you will find a total of 50 workshops and talks on music and audio production in a 3,000 square meter venue. Additionally, Studioszene will also include 40 top manufacturers from the studio sector, who will present their products and innovations on site – ready for you to test.

Studioszene offers passionate music creators the opportunity to meet international and national engineers, exchange ideas and gain new insights, experiences and know-how. Leave routine behind, explore new horizons and increase your creativity!

It’s all about joining in!

Over the course of two days and in a total of 50 workshops and talks, established engineers and producers will show you how good sound is created already in front of the microphone and how they deal with various problems in the recording, mixing or mastering process. Furthermore, they will demonstrate how this results in the creation of a finished track.

In addition to music and audio production topics, our talks will also discuss everything to do with the music business – such as the development of music consumption, self-marketing, artists’ social insurance, retirement provisions for freelancers and much more.

To Studioszene, we have invited both top-class nationally and internationally renowned engineers as well as underground freelancers who will speak of their work and everyday studio life.

Why I have to visit Studioszene!

Networking.Know-how.Gear! These are the three decisive arguments. Studioszene attracts an ambitious specialist audience with whom you can talk shop and exchange ideas. The event thus offers a platform where contacts can lead to joint projects and jobs. After all: nothing is more important in the audio industry than networking.

In workshops and in face-to-face conversations you can gather new ideas, experience new creative approaches as well as gain a lot of experience and insights – to integrate into your work in the future.

Additionally, the top audio manufacturers’ products will be available for hands-ons. Product specialists will introduce you to the software and hardware, will explain their features and will answer your application-related questions.

Cologne – more than just Alaaf!

Cologne is a media city! Being based in Cologne, Studioszene is located in a town with a large studio and music scene as well as a lot of TV production companies. Music and audio production plays an important role in the cathedral city. Additionally, Cologne is easy to reach by public transport and via Cologne-Bonn airport – and also attracts international audiences due to its proximity to the Benelux countries and France.
