Grammy Winning/Multi-Platinum Engineer Richard Furch is coming home to SAE Berlin. Born and raised in Berlin, Richard graduated from SAE Berlin in 1997, now living in Los Angeles.
Starting out in New York, he was part of some of the seminal albums of the 2000’s such as Outkast’s “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below” and Usher’s “Confessions” and critical darlings such as Fountains Of Wayne’s “Stacy’s Mom”.
Moving coasts to Los Angeles saw him working with all-time giants of the music industry such as Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. He was then tapped by the legendary Prince as mixer and engineer for his latest Gold selling, chart topping “Lotusflower/MPLSound” album.
Growing up on SSL consoles and having learned from legendary mixers such as Michael Brauer, Chris Lord-Alge and Tchad Blake, Richard obtained an in-depth knowledge and appreciation of analog and digital mixing techniques, a stunning arsenal of vintage and modern gear and finally his own no holds barred mixHaus studios in LA.
He has amassed credits on 6 Grammy winning albums out of 18 nominated albums, with 3 current nominations in multiple categories for 2017.
