Berggren started the company as MB-Electronics in the city Trollhattan in
Sweden with production of electric guitar stomp boxes.
The photo below shows a prototype of the optcal compressor with carefully tuned performance:
company went over to music recording, and the first recording studio with 4
tracks was built in the center of Trollhattan 1985.
The studio expanded some years later to 8 tracks and moved to a new location just outside the city, the name changed to MB-recording.
A lot of local bands recorded their own material or covers in these two studios, click here for the client list
All recording and mastering was done on analog tape in line with that time and for best sound quality.
The studio had good microphones and important was also to prioritize the musicians mood.
Mats continued 1990 as freelansing recording engineer instead of having his own studio.
The recordings were mainly done at Studio Hovik (24 channels) and Studio Eko (16 channels).
No recordings have however been done since many years – the company was closed down in February 2012.
