Hi, I am Ralph Verdult, a freelance engineer based in Amsterdam. I run my own hybrid studio here and I work as a live engineer in several venues and for a couple of bands. I graduated from SAE Rotterdam in 2008, and have been working there as a supervisor from 2009 until 2012.
As I stated above, I run my own recording / mixing studio in Amsterdam. The studio is based around a modified Soundcraft 1624 console, hooked up to Pro Tools with an Apogee Ensemble. The ensemble is extended with the Focusrite Octopre Dynamic of extra AD-DA conversion, wich gives a total of 16 analogue I/O. Next to the control room is the 60m2 live room with Yamaha C5 grand piano, and some other basic instruments and backline.
As a live engineer I work for the small and friendly venue Bitterzoet in the Amsterdam City center. I also run the nightshifts in De Melkweg. Besides that I tour as FOH engineer with 10-piece pop band Wooden Saints, and occasionally with Eefje de Visser as a substitute.
