Recording, Mixing & Mastering

Ralph Verdult on SoundBetter

Studio nerd by day, mixing live bands by night. During the day I record, mix, master and fumble around with old smelly gear in my studio. At night I mix live music for bands I tour with or one of most popular venues in Amsterdam, De Melkweg.

I don't have any super-awards on my name just yet, but perhaps you'll be the first!

I run a studio facility in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where we mainly do recordings and mixing. We've got a nice control room filled with analog and digital toys, a spacious tracking room with beautiful Steinway M170 grand piano and a production room that doubles as a isolation booth for drums or, whatever, really.. Most importantly we've got a lounge with couch, dining table, and a great coffee machine!

The control room is very hybrid, with a big analog Cadac console as its center piece. I love working analog, but it's not for every project. Sometimes you need the ease of recallability, and quick changes, that's why I can be completely in the box as well.
But there's just something about pushing faders, turning knobs and pushing buttons.

I work on a lot of different genres. A lot of jazz ensembles love to come here for recording because of the nice piano, but I also love crunchy guitars, pumping beats and lush vocals. I've got a wide musical interest, both electronic and acoustic, but I enjoy my work most when it's just a couple of people playing in a room and feeding off of each other. There's something in playing together that's magic to me.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
