    Absolute pleasure to work with Jürgen. Have done various projects through the years at Sunset Recording Studios, and all turned out great. Top class mixing engineer and producer.

  2. Review by Vicente Espi

    Jürgen is an awesome engineer to work with. Everything was ready BEFORE I arrived and the engineering never got in the way of me playing (believe me, that almost never happens). He is solid, experienced and will make a great record. As a producer, he knows how to draw out the best in an artist. What more can I say...

Interview with Jurgen von Wechmar

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Every project is important to that specific client. They spend their hard earned money to get their music out there and I respect that dearly. Seeing a client smile and have success with something I was able to contribute to, is my proudest moments. Life is longer that only one project...

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both, analog for tracking and digital for mixing. I come from an analog era (1990's) but I can do so much more in the digital realm and revisions are a breeze.

  16. A: sunscreen!

  17. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
