This workbook is a "plug and play" quick guide for all of you who want to make the most out of your current practice space: playing music, having fun and capturing the magic.
Writing, arranging, playing and recording flow together into one process. Everything we know about what is really essential to record in small spaces with little (or no) budget is documented here.
The compact e-book, which is available from iTunes in the full version, offers knowledge, entertainment and lots of photos, audio samples, 2 extra chapters and bonus tracks of the metal band Kreator.
Berlin-based producer and recording engineer has worked with the Beatsteaks, Tocotronic, Dendemann, Fehlfarben, T.Raumschmiere, Kreator and Turbostaat, among others. He understands probably more than any other producer in Germany how to combine profound musical knowledge with the willingness to use unconventional approaches and methods. (Hannes Bieger / Sound & Recording)

Arnim Teutoburg-Weiss, Beatsteaks
"We often have the problem that we always feel tight in the studio, because we don't want to make any mistakes and then play that way. Then we asked ourselves: where do things move, where do we feel free? The answer was clear: our practice room. So let's go!“
„Just like Weiland Marx, he wants to give you this subversive book and help you to take the initiative and produce yourselves in your own space and make music recordings with such high quality magic that the place will rock!“
Gordon Raphael
"Any young or old person that is interested in recording, that think they can learn it themselves without going on a 4-year-university. It has the valuable information for anybody who is intelligent and self motivated, especially if they don’t have a million dollars for equipment."
Fuze Magazine 08/2011
"Warning! In future, every band who sends a demo to Fuze (ed.: -Magazine) has to declare a solemn oath that they have read and understood "The alternative workbook" by Beatsteaks and Kreator producer Moses Schneider."
