Carvers are Tina and Werner -
and music is their passion
It is Tina who is operating the lathe,
which is a masterpiece of German engineering. After
more than five years of experience with this newly invented
machine, she is so familiar with it’s feel that
she is able to operate it blindfolded, everything is
Tina takes care of the lead-in/out grooves and the overall
appearance of your one-off record, final inspection
is accomplished under a magnifying glass and a microscope.
Nothing is beyond the audible range of Tina’s
ears as she can hear the bats communicating (no joke!)
that’s around 22 kHz.
Werner has over 20 years
of experience in the recording industry. He started
producing music in the mid 80’s with an Atari
computer in his parent’s basement and was into
Protools from Digidesign’s very beginning (around
1988 / Sounddesigner).
Unique II is the brainchild of Erwin and Werner.
Sales in excess of 1.5 million units, various top 10
tracks in 25 countries and appearances on 4.5 million
Their remake of Matthew Wilder’s ‘Break
My Stride’ made it to #1 in more than ten countries
including Australia, New Zealand, Austria, Sweden, Czech
Republic, and Nicaragua.
Tina and Werner's own studio
is built around a vintage SSL 4000 B-series console.
As an electronics engineer Werner refurbished the desk,
that had been previously installed in London’s
Townhouse and Matrix Studios, by himself.
Tina and Werner are also designing analogue
recording equipment, especially circuits with valves.
Based on techniques that go back as far as the 1920’s
they are building equipment themselves.
And it surely will add sparkle and analogue warmth to
your everlasting dubplates.
