Soundheroes stands for edgy, unique, different, quality, character and a general love for music.
We are available for all your recording, mixing and music-production needs. We also specialize in session-drums and provide an audio-editing and clean-up service.
Music is our passion, we help to create and shape your unique sound. Whether it’s a solo artist in need of music, electronic music that needs mixing, recording authentic blues or bang in your face metal, no piece of music is the same and we can provide the custom approach it deserves.
“There is nothing outside of this process. This process called recording is the creative process. We don’t have the canvas standing in front of any landscape, you are going to make the landscape here and now” – Brian Eno
Here we lay down the foundation and capture the magic. We’re big fans of getting that “live” feel and authentic vibe, but everything’s possible. We’re flexible.
We love both vintage and modern gear and turning those knobs, but we also love the modern workflow and ease of use when working “in the box”. We’re all about combining the best of worlds, whether it’s digital, analogue, vintage or modern.
To get you great results, Soundheroes works together with selected recording studios.
Next to that we will always try our best to facilitate your special needs and wishes, for instance in gear and instruments. Don’t hesitate to ask!
“If it sounds right, it IS right” – Joe Meek
Music is art. So is mixing. It’s as much a musical process as it is a technical one. Finding the right balance and creating impact, whether it’s a fragile love song or an all guns blazing metal track.
Each piece of music is unique and gets a custom approach. It’s all about the song.
“Without music, life would be a mistake” – Friedrich Nietzsche
When you just need an extra set of ears to give you some advice or when you want to write and create music together, we’re there to help you out. From creating extra layers to complete productions, we bring ideas to life. By defining sound and adding colour, we give your music that special something something and that extra shine it deserves.
Soundheroes is also available when your company wants a soundlogo or a tune for an ad.
Let us know what you need and see what we can do for you!
“To be a drummer, you also need to be a musician” – Ian Paice
“Drums” in any shape or form are the heartbeat and the foundation of most music.
We can provide you with killer drumlicks and on point (electronic) beats.
We have a pretty cool selection of both vintage and modern drumsets, cymbals and percussion.
We’ve got something for every mood.
For tracking drums, we only work together with selected studios to ensure we get you that high quality sound that fits your project.
“Audiophiles don’t use their equipment to listen to your music. Audiophiles use your music to listen to their equipment” – Alan Parsons
Soundheroes provides an audio editing service and we’re available for all kinds of jobs. From cleaning up and restoring audio to editing your drumtracks and everything in between. All to get you pro-sounding audio tracks.
“It’s not about the microphone, yes, that’s important too, but down the line, it’s all about the performance in the studio” – Mike Howlett
When you’re in need of an (assistent-) engineer for mixing or recording or for both, or you’re looking for a Producer to help you with your project, Soundheroes comes to the rescue! We’re available for hire on location by bands, musicians, singer-songwriters, you name it. Studios and labels can also make use of these services.
For bands and studio’s who want to make sure they get the best drumsound possible, we also offer a Drum Tech service. That ranges from prepping and tuning your drumset and drum maintenance on location, to expert advice in sound and what to use. We can even provide you with great (vintage) drumsets, cymbals and percussion for your recordings. Just get in touch and tell us what you need!
“I strongly believe that the way to good music and creating art, lies in building relationships and the chemistry between people. Music is a language. For me the foundation is you and your music. That special something, it’s allready there. I just help to bring it out and tie it all together”.
