Jelle van Snek on SoundBetter

Want to stop worrying about nailing your mixdown? Here is your solution! Do you love making music but mis the skills to bring the song to your desired level? No worries, after releasing more than 15 songs (all fully mixed by me) and over 650.000 streams it is time to offer my skill set to other people as well!

My name is Jelle van Snek, a 24-year-old producer and engineer from a small village near Rotterdam (Netherlands).

When I am not in my studio I work as a live Sound engineer in theaters and clubs. Thanks to my work as a live engineer, I’ve gathered a wide skill set to fix every mix. I’ve specialized in hardstyle production and dance music mixing.

I will offer the following mixes for all genre’s:

- Stem mixing
- Full mixdowns
- Vocal mixdowns

All mixdowns have 2 revisions included!

Before every assignment u can send me the demo and the stems so I can make a fitting price for your project

  34. A: my strongest skill is finding the fighting frequencies and other annoying things that can clean up your song or stems.

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

  38. A: I try to make the best mix with balans, panning and eq. when this part is done I will start with the dynamic control processing like compression and dessing. As soon as this is done I will start adding fx to the mix and automate parameters to add some life to your music.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: My mix setup is fairly simple, A antelope Discrete 8 Synergy core with 2 Genelec 8040's and 2 dB Opera 208D with a Presonus monitor station in between. The hardware mix gear I use is: a Lexicon reverb a DBX166XL for gating and 2 76-kt's compressors.
