Almost thirty years ago, Ronald began his career as an inexperienced assistant engineer at Wisseloord Studios. Since then, he has established himself as one of the most accomplished and innovative mix engineers in the
world working for renowned artists such as Rammstein, The Scorpions, Simple Minds, Live, Within Temptation, Manowar, Alain Clark, Peter Maffay and Clouseau, just to name a few.
While happy to work in stereo, Ronald specializes in the area of surround sound - not only pioneering in the field of mixing, but also playing a key role in the conceptualization and development of new technology for working in 5.1 and other progressive high-resolution multi-channel formats. In the very early years of
surround audio development, Ronald became a "test pilot" for Sony and Philips' DSD/SACD format and many of the projects that he mixed in those days are still held up as benchmark examples of creative surround mixing.
The concept of reviving Wisseloord began with Ronald who, as a member of the Board of Directors, will direct the creative and technical development of the facility as well as continuing to work his magic behind the mixing console.
