The basic idea of the studio

The idea behind the sound studio tongarage is to implement creativity, fun while working and exciting projects in the audio field. We particularly value supporting young, ambitious bands, individual artists, choirs, etc. in a wide variety of genres. This is done individually and can not be described in general. So get in touch with us and convince us with your ideas. If we've caught fire, we almost always find ways to cooperate.

The tongarage has no fixed prices as many different factors change from project to project. We are particularly happy to support young, "hungry" artists, provided we feel your enthusiasm, your joy and the will to create and complete something together.


In order to provide a reference point, we have decided to define a "standard price" (this includes recording, editing, mixing and producing). The price is based on an hourly studio rate of 60CHF and includes all activities including equipment that we offer. From our point of view, it is particularly important, when recording, that the artist is not under any pressure to fully exhaust the costs for a daily rate, we believe, working is done much better in a relaxed atmosphere. In addition, there are usually two sound engineers involved in the recording process.

The entire studio area is approx. 100m2 and is divided into four different sized rooms.

The recording room # 1 - "Cadillac"


At the moment the recording room "Cadillac" is used for rehearsals and demo recordings by the band forty9dot6. For larger productions this can be used in addition to the second recording room ("Pontiac").


The recording room # 2 - "Pontiac"

The "Pontiac" recording room is slightly larger and is our main recording room. Most of our recordings take place here.

The control room


The control room is the heart of every studio. We decided for a modern way of operation for the control room, i.e. we deliberately avoided using a large analog mixer and use touchscreens as a virtual work surface.


The passage & lounge area

Creative work also requires a cozy, harmonious environment. We have made sure that everyone feels comfortable in our indoor area / lounge. People can sit, discuss, and drink ... in this atmosphere, ideas, patterns, licks, melodies and texts are developed all the way to finished songs.
