Studio + Services

Welcome to the Red Door Studio. I offer music production and specialise on all types of metal, heavy, hardcore, dark, deep and evil music.

Full music production includes recording, editing, mixing and mastering – or any combination that suits your needs. Whether it is your first low budget demo, an EP or a full studio album I will always strive to make your music sound the way it is supposed to sound!

If you choose to record at home, in your rehearsal room or in another studio I offer my E-Services where you can upload your files for editing, re-amping, mixing and/or mastering. I also assist in the choice of equipment and workflow to help you prepare the best possible tracks for mixing.

Please drop me a request if there is anything I can do for you!

The Man Behind

My name is Nicolas Keller and I am the owner of the Red Door Studio. I grew up in a small hessian village called Rembrücken where my studio is located. I started playing my first acoustic guitar at the age of maybe 6 years old and became fascinated in both heavy music (or what I called heavy back in the days) and sound engineering by the age of around 15. You got to admit – all those shiny buttons look damn cool!

In all seriousness, as much as music is an art form it is also a science and it is incredibly fascinating!

For a number or years I have been working for the highly renowned Kohlekeller Studio where I currently fill in assisting and editing duties. I am also a graduate of the Music and Sound Recording (Tonmeister BA Hons) course from the highly regarded University of Surrey, Guildford, England and I majored in the science of analogue summing amplification.

Throughout the years I have been practicing numerous instruments and looking for fresh and innovative ways to improve workflow and achieve the best of results.

Red Door Studio has been work in progress since 2013. There has been a lot of planning, designing and building over the years and I plan to expand more extensively during 2016.

So here we go!
