Founded and hand built by Stefan Kraatz in January 2020, Kraatz Studios is located in Berlin‘s pulsating Mitte district. The highly skilled and experienced studio team has a long track record of providing award-winning sound and audio bespoke to your individual production needs. TV, radio or cinema campaign, feature film, any form of sound design, music production, mastering, podcast, audiobook or anything in between – when it comes to sound and audio, Kraatz Studios is happy to offer the full package.
Equipped with high-class preamps, an exclusive selection of microphones and 16 inputs total, the studio offers a comfortable 13 m2 soundproofed recording room. The room within a room concept was implemented focusing equally on extraordinarily high isolation as well as the careful use of sustainable materials. Due to its flexible partitions, the studio can be specifically modified to fit all kinds of recording needs and purposes from voice over and vocal recording to multiple instruments recordings.
Sound design & restauration
When faced with challenges, we love to experiment, test our limits and even break the rules to find the perfect sound. With our steadily growing sound archive, virtual and real instruments, synthesizers and the possibility to record our own foleys, we can create the ideal sound design for your individual project.
We produce music for musicians, bands and commercials. The studio is equipped with a huge array of guitars, amps and drums to find the perfect sound for almost every genre.
Mix & Mastering
Our control rooms are acoustically measured and provides high-end analogue and digital equipment. For all advertising projects we produce and finalize broadcast quality mixes in specific specs for TV, online, radio or cinema. For all our music productions we can deliver DDP CD master, vinyl master or master files for all digital formats incl. mastered for iTunes.
Whatever your production, we’ll help you find the perfect match to fit your project. In our own voiceover database we have a carefully selected range of professional artists. And if we can't find what you're looking for, we work with several major casting agencies.

Originally from the north of Germany, Maurice Krämer has been living in Berlin for more than 10 years. He studied sound engineering in Hamburg and Berlin and played Europe‘s clubs as a DJ for over more than a decade. Speaking of experience: Maurice’s occupation as an audio engineer and producer for several well-known studios spans the same amount of time. In 2020 Maurice founded “Word Up”, a voice talent management service. He will contribute and advise you as an equally reliable and experienced audio producer at Kraatz Studios.
