I am Toby Schuetgens, an independent country rock artist, and, what´s more important in this case:

professional Audio Engineer!

How does it work?

This is quite easy. You type in your Email address in the form below. After you have done this, you´ll receive a link into your mailbox that leads you to a form with a couple questions for me to learn more about your project. Once I have received back the filled form I will reach out to you with a link to a cloud service where you can then upload your recordings. And that´s it.

From the day you´ve uploaded your recordings it will take a couple days and then you will get a completely mixed & mastered version of your song you can directly upload to streaming platforms for example if you like my work - if not: you have nothing lost. Because it will really don´t cost you anything.

So, let´s get started today!

Why "Simple Life Studio"?

As even Lenny Kravitz once said: "Don´t be afraid to keep it simple!"

We life in a world where everything seems to be more appearances than reality. But this is not what I like to offer. That´s even not just me. I like it when things are true. And that´s also what I like to achieve with my sound. I believe in simplicity - I believe in what it is. I don´t impress with distraction from reality, I work out elements and emotions the way they are in a simple but effective way. It´s not my style to alienate sounds that far just to make them fit into what´s "modern" these days.

This is why my place is called "Simple Life Studio" - I´m living a simple country life and I´m not afraid to get my hands dirty out here and this kind of lifestyle reflects also in my work as a professional audio engineer.

Studio Setup

My homestudio is a hybrid studio what means it combines the best elements of both worlds: analog and digital. A big part of my mixing and mastering is happening in the box but there is also some analog outboard gear for example to add flavor at some points and to get rid of the digital harshness.

The digital part makes a lot of things easier and cheaper. But sometimes it feels that there is something missing and that is where analog gear comes in to play. The analog gear makes a song feel more natural and organic sometimes.

These are the benefits of a hybrid studio where analog and digital gear comes together.
