Antoine van Kampen – Music producer

Antoine van Kampen is a semi-professional Dutch music producer, (live) musician, and mixing engineer. He graduated cum laude from Sound Education Nederland. His music spans different genres. You can find Antoine on YouTube, SoundCloud, and Spotify.

Antoine was trained as a musician at young age on the electronic organ mostly playing classical and popular sheet music. After six years he moved to piano and synthesizer (the Crumar Bit 99) and he started playing in his first band (Bad Weather). At the same time he got introduced to mixing using Cubase on a Atari computer in the studio of the local school of music.

The last 30 years, Antoine performed live in multiple bands varying from rock, pop, and funk to musical, jazz, and big band. This experience he uses to compose his own music (e.g. Time to Start). During these years he got fluent  with the Cubase digital audio workstation (DAW) and a large range of other music software for composing (Dorico), mixing (Cubase), mastering (Wavelab), and high-quality virtual instruments from, for example, Steinberg, Native Instruments, East West, and MusicLab. He also organized a beginners course in mixing using Reaper. Antoine got increasingly interested in mixing his own compositions as well as music produced by other bands (e.g., Turkuaz). Listen [here] to a recent production.

To facilitate his musical endeveours he has set up a well-equiped professional home studio (Skippy Studio) which harbors a large range of keyboards and other studio equipment and software. Recently, Antoine became more experienced in home studio acoustics including measuring studio sound characteristics, and treated his mixing room to improve the mixing process. He also has a general interest in the mathematics and physics of sound in relation to the mixing process.

Recently, he stopped with playing in live bands to fully focus on music production (composing, playing, mixing, and mastering). His skills and experience allows him to cover this complete trajectory in a unique and interactive fashion.

Antoine is always looking forward to interesting collaborations. If you need help with your home studio, Cubase, mixing, and mastering the see my services.
