Patrik Schwitter

Patrik Schwitter is one of the well known and highly experienced recording, mixing and mastering veterans in Switzerland.


Since his start in 1987 at Ebony Studios, he worked on +1300 productions. With his pal Martin Lachmann (Applied Acoustics) he founded Gamma Recording in 1990 and worked with international artists like Eddie Harris, Gil Scott Heron & Amnesia Express, The JB Horns, The Meters etc. and great musicians like Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel), Daryll Jones (Sting, Miles, Madonna, Rolling Stones), Daryl Thompson (Peter Tosh, Sly and Robbie), Gerry Brown (Stevie Wonder, Chick Corea), Curt Cress (Tina Turner, Falco, Freddy Mercury) and Ray Peterson (Blood, Sweat & Tears) etc. Patrik had the honour of tracking “Destination Unknown”, the very last album of Sun Ra and his Omniverse Arkestra just before Sun Ra died. In 2010, he won the German Record Critics Award for Steve Lacy's album "November”.

In the summer of 2017, Patrik founded his personal facility in Zurich, which has been optimized for mixing. In his new audio suite, he made productions for Brainticket, Imperial Triumphant, Iandara, Jurczok 1001, Travelogue, Bruno Spoerri, I Am Chaos, Kilter, Hazer Baba, etc. In March 2019, he was nominated for the 19th "Independent Music Award" in NYC in the category "eclectic" with his production of *Andromeda Anarchia's Darkmatters.

One of his recent projects is the album tracking of harp player and Grammy Award Winner Andreas Vollenweider, the most successful musician in Switzerland. "Quiet Places" was released in winter 2020.



MIRROR-ing is a spectacular way if I have to cope with too much of void in a fragmented arrangement delivered by customers! Say "Hasta luego" to lame and annoying rhythm and sequencer tracks with this little help of my new friend.


If you are looking for a straightforward but well-thought-out tone bender, FireEQ is a great choice!


How to revive a drab and monotonous track? Let Randomachine do its job on a soft level and feel the new breeze and vibe... or have fun and dare to go crazy dialing up to a 100%!


Nanopuls does an incredible job on all this sort of aggro and peaky sounds like rimshots, triangles and superdry shakers etc. smoothing out the sharpness and the ability shaping them into the desired envelope heading for a creamy and thick and very pleasing piece of sound. and of course the opposite if needed! ;)


Awesome! What a brilliant idea to put some sought-after compressors in a row and let them be merged as we want to. With this tool, UP increased the speed of our workflow and also decreased the CPU load! Thumbs up!


The awesome Orbitron is definitely my new "roller coaster" if I want to dial in a superb and also funny modulator. from subtle movements packed with emotion up to the weirdest and hyphy stuff spinning around my head. conclusion: immersion audio with just two speakers. and thanks to the clever GUI layout tweaking is a breeze. I'm totally convinced!

Front DAW

No matter what kind of specific sonic character you’re hunting for: whether it’s the N - - -, the A - - or the ultra sweet German valve flavor: only adjust the highpass (thanks for that knob. you know what it takes!), dial in the MOJO and you will start smiling while entering sheer analogue heaven.


In swiss german the word "Uni" (ohne) means "without". Bottom line: it would be hard for me to live without your ace sounding, ultra flexible and close-to-zero-load-on-cpu UniChannel!

Royal Compressor

I was immediately overwhelmed by the stunning overall sound quality and the very well-chosen parameters.


Lucky me that I went to the dentist last week. I was just applying Dropkick's default preset for the very first time on an acoustic bass drum track. If I didn't visit my drilling mate I'm convinced that my entire bite machine would have been powdering into dust as soon as the first kick arrived my skull in MMA style! What a cool beast!


It’s super easy to use and the exorbitant FireCobra will even shapeshift a boring DAW click track into a world-class performance.


The second item I bought from UP was Front DAW which immediately convinced me because of sound quality and (no) CPU weight. Not a surprise that I apply F-DAW almost every day to my mixing jobs. But sometimes I wish there would be an easy-to-use opportunity to drive different preamps on specific frequency ranges within a signal source. And boom >> UnitedPlugins did it one more time: Plamen! and Soundevice Digital even extended their choice of saturation with a cool clipper and magnetic tape behaviour. And the icing on the cake: tape wow! What can I say? WOW!
