About

If you are interested in some milestones, this is for you:

  • 2007-2009

    Our Humble Beginnings

    Remember those days being in a band for a few years, have awesome music ready but no money for a studio that is able to do exactly what you want? HardBeat remembers...

  • April 2011

    HardBeat is born

    Our first setup. 64 channels in and out, powered by RME. A crystal clear sound that convinced us since the very beginning. Guess what? We're still using these preamps and converters, because they are that awesome!

  • December 2012

    Transition to full service

    The first full length albums are done! Our know-how and the list of gear begins to grow. Besides playing in bands, we spend every free minute in the studio.

  • July 2014

    Phase Two Expansion

    Seeing bands struggle getting their records in the right shape, we now offer an extended service. Everything from your idea to a finished, awesome record.
