iksample studio was founded in 2003 in the center of Berlin and has since become a fixture for voice production and audio design. We take care of all aspects of your audio project, large or small, from initial casting to the final mix.
The acoustically optimized studios provide a relaxed work atmosphere in versatile recording, mixing and editing rooms with lots of natural light. Built 2015 in a roof top location in Berlin-Friedrichshain the efficient work spaces offer stunning views of Berlin’s bustling media hub on the river Spree.
Our team of multi-lingual voice and sound experts loves to bring complex productions reliably and cost-effectively to life. Leave your projects in our capable hands – we are always looking to rise to new challenges and make for a smooth, polished and pleasurable production experience.
The pandemic makes life and work difficult these days, but luckily we can record many of our voice artists remotely in high quality from their home studios and clients can always dial in to keep full control and overview of their projects.
At the moment we work with a minimum of staff and we take serious protection and hygiene measures to make all our usual services still possible.

The iksample main base in Berlin Friedrichshain accomodates two recording/control rooms, including a bigger and a smaller surround mixing/edit suite. The high standard work spaces were newly built on a roof top in a quiet street, but close to public transport.
Furthermore another spacious recording/control room in Berlin-Wedding is also part of the iksample network. And in case of very high security demands we work in recording/control/server facilities on ‘trusted network’ standard only a few blocks away from the main base.
All studios are equipped with high-quality gear and state of the art software. The main recording and control rooms were accoustically optimized by the eminent authority Dipl. Ing. Kurt Huhn (Funkhaus Berlin).
