Massive Rock and Metal mixes

Juan van Keulen on SoundBetter

I specialize in mixing heavy rock drums, bass and guitar to give your mix the punch it needs. I strive to craft powerful, yet authentic and emotional mixes.

I am a young mixing engineer with a formal education in audio science and 7+ years of experience.

I'm able to mix any genre but I specialize in rock and metal.

I mix primarily in the box. My monitor system has a full range response and my studio is acoustically treated.

Interview with Juan van Keulen

  1. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  2. A: A great mixer can make a huge difference in your project, but your music will still sound as good as the weakest link in your chain. Weak songs, arrangements and performances won't be saved by a good mixer.

  3. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  4. A: Matias Menarguez. He is an outstanding jazz drummer.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Neither.

  7. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  8. A: High quality tools are useless if you lack the skill to take advantage of them. Constantly work on improving yourself as a musician/engineer rather than worrying about gear.

  9. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  10. A: I enjoy working in practically every genre, but I find myself working on rock and metal most of the time.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: At the moment I use a pair of JBL LSR305 monitors paired with a Presonus Temblor T8 sub, an Audient iD22 audio interface and a Focusrite 18i20 for extra inputs and outputs. My room is treated with high quality acoustic panels and bass traps. I strive to make the acoustic response of my room better every day, as I think this is the single most important factor of a mixing control room. I mix primarily in the box using Waves, Fabfilter, Soundtoys, etc. (who cares?).

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

  14. A: Andrew Scheps, Steven Wilson, David from MixbusTV, Ethan Winer.

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

  16. A: Mixing, editing, mastering.
