Hans-Martin Buff

Recording Engineer / Producer / 3D Audio Geek

Hans-Martin Buff began his career as a recording engineer and music producer in 1993 at Pachyderm Studios, Minnesota, USA, where he made excellent coffee, and then proceeded to hone his studio chops by assisting on projects such as Live’s million-seller “Throwing Copper.”

Hans-Martin worked his way through various local rock’n’roll factories before he found a more permanent home at Prince’s Paisley Park Studios, whose personal engineer he became and remained for four funky years. During this period, he wasn’t only responsible for His Purple Majesty’s recordings, but also for the studio affairs of world-renowned artists, including No Doubt, Chaka Khan, and Larry Graham.

A native of Germany, Hans-Martin relocated to his home country in 2001, where he continued his career as an independent recording engineer and producer, and where he has since recorded, mixed, or produced a host of national and international talent, such as Mousse T., Joss Stone, Zucchero, Eric Burdon, Roachford, Maxi Priest and the Scorpions.

Hans-Martin has become an expert in the making of 3D-Audio for headphones, and regularly advises artists and industry professionals on its vast creative possibilities.
