Wisseloord Studio Tour June 16, 2015

In this video we get to tour Wisseloord Studios in Holland. This is some of the footage James collected on his recent trip to meet with the guys from DWB Music and we get to look in the live rooms, the control rooms and some of the spaces we don’t normally get to see in a professional studio like the machine rooms and storage spaces. Did James raid the drum room for classic snare drums? You will have to watch to find out.

Tabaluga @ the Hamburg Planetarium April 8, 2014

Tabaluga is back – bigger and better than ever!  Our intrepid little dragon friend is making his world premiere at the Hamburg Planetarium this week. Peter Maffay’s “Tabaluga und die Zeichen der Zeit” has been transformed into a spectacular 360-degree animation to be viewed on their 21-meter full-dome screen, accompanied by mind-blowing three-dimensional music and sound-design to match.  Mixed here at Wisseloord in discrete 10.1 by engineer Ronald Prent with producer Peter Keller, the audio has been translated for playback on the planetarium’s Atmosphea 3D sound system.
This show is definitely a visual and musical experience not to be missed.  We sure can’t reproduce it here in it’s full glory, but here’s a bite-sized taste: Tabaluga Trailer

Peter Maffay does it again February 24, 2014

Congratulations to Peter Maffay & his team !!!
The new album, “Wenn Das So Ist”, shot directly to ‘Number One’ on the German charts this week!

This is his 16th ‘Number One’ album – setting a World Record. With more than 40 million records and 10 million concert tickets sold over his 44-year musical career, Peter Maffay is now the most successful German chart artist of all times.

The album, recorded and mixed by Ronald and mastered by Darcy, is gathering much praise for it’s sound quality and is accompanied with a live DVD in the Deluxe Edition.

2014 Grammy Nomination November 1, 2013

While Darcy’s last Grammy hasn’t even gotten the time to settle down here at the Wisseloord studios,  a new nomination for “Best Surround Sound Album”has come in for the 2014 Grammy’s. Once again it is Darcy who has taken care of the mastering for Jane Ira Bloom’s Sixteen Sunset album alongside Jim Anderson. Winners will be announced Sunday, January 26th.

THE GRAMMY HAS ARRIVED! October 29, 2013

Wisseloord’s Darcy Proper, Jim Anderson (engineer), and Mike Friedman (Premonition Records) were delighted to receive their actual Grammy Awards this week.  These were awarded back in February for their work on Patricia Barber’s stunning “Modern Cool” PureAudio BluRay release but, because none of the actual trophies are made until the winners are announced, it takes several weeks for them to be sent to the lucky recipients.  Here’s a the official photo of these happy folks taken backstage in Los Angeles just moments after their names were announced as winners in the Best Surround Sound Album category.
