Recording at your home based studio and can't get a proper mix done? Or do you need a real good and big sounding drum track?
This is the right place for you......
As a drummer Juan performed at many studio sessions in the UK and the Netherlands. His fascination and passion for recording music started when he was young, using the "pingpong" technique with mono tape cassettes players. At the age of 14, Juan was asked to play drums for jingles and demos at a local studio called ‘Joe’s Garage’. “I can tell that I got ‘infected’ by the passion of engineer Lats Varga; he inspired me to listen to details in music and to aim for the best live audio recordings”.
During the studio sessions later on, Juan has had the privilege to work with many great producers such as Ken Thomas (Jacob's Studios), Paul Lilly (Real Life Ltd.), Curtis Schwartz (Curtis Schwartz Productions) John Sonneveld, Pim Koopman (RIP), (Wisseloord Studios), Don Willard (RIP), Robin Freeman (Fendal Sound Studio), Ernst Jansz (Dureco Studio) and George Koning (Sound Vision).
Through these occasions he learned to listen to the acoustics of a live room, how to use various microphones and how to combine the analogue and digital recording sessions.
Today van Emmerloot works at "40 Lions Place" (Studio 1 and Studio 2) on a daily basis, recording drums for: Marco Canepa (It), BiOS Productions (It), French House Recording Studio (Fa), Arthur Antoine Theunissen from STUDIO CUBE, George Konings at SOUND VISION Studio and TheRoomRecordings Productions.
