Music Producer, Mix Engineer

Optoproductions on SoundBetter

I believe in unique artistic musical visions and I hope to enhance your music with my music production & mixing skill set.

I am a music producer and mixing engineer from the Netherlands. My area of work is within the independent music scene as I greatly value unique artistic identities. As a drummer and guitarist, with roots in electronic music my sound lies in the interaction of these two worlds. Music is supposed to breathe, be dynamic but powerful at the same time. I embrace the human aspect of music, something which is lacking in most electronic music nowadays.

I work with various instruments and synthesizers, both hardware and software as I believe this hybrid form of analog and digital brings the best of both worlds. I have access to a network of musicians and studios here in the Netherlands so if you are a singer-songwriter looking for a complete band arrangement you are in the right place.

I love working with talented new artists, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me as I am glad to offer you all the help I can.

Interview with Optoproductions

  1. Q: What's your typical work process?

  2. A: Whatever music I produce or mix, my main goals is always to achieve some sense of human touch. I don't draw automation by mouse, I use a control surface for that. Even when I make electronic music I do still play the keys and twist knobs as those interactions bring life into the song.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: I am currently investing the most in software plugins but I actually started buying hardware synthesizers as well lately. So I am not afraid to use my DX7, Nord Lead, Waldorf Blofeld and other synths into productions. Everything I do however is focussed around Cubase Pro 9.5.

  5. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  6. A: Bon Iver, Gregory Alan Isakov, Tame Impala, Fleet Foxes, Daughter

  7. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  8. A: Mixing Music
