Danny is re-recording mixer en sound supervisor en heeft gewerkt aan de Disney+ serie ‘Dat Ene Woord’, de film the Lobster en zeer recent een 11 delige Netflix documentaire serie Voices of liberation. We praten over mixage, de natuurdocumentaire Silence of the Tides (nominatie Gouden Kalf sound design 2021), workflows, sound design en Dolby Atmos.

Behind the sound

Streamingservice Netflix heeft in de 11-delige historische docuserie ‘Voices of Liberation’ kosten noch moeite gespaard om het einde van de Tweede Wereldoorlog in beeld te brengen. Het verhaal van Europa’s bevrijding wordt verteld met behulp van teksten, ooggetuigenverslagen en archiefmateriaal.

Dolby Atmos is here!

Recently my studio has been upgraded to Dolby Atmos 7.1.4. The Genelec sound system welcomed 4 new brothers and sisters.

With Dolby Atmos sound can be placed in a 3D space. Dolby Atmos can be heard in cinemas, on personal devices such as phones and tablets and on the latest smart televisions. Content providers such as Netflix and Apple TV have movies and series in their catalog with this sound format.

My goal is to promote this amazing format and bring it to your home or cinema near you. Recently the movie “Silence of the tides” has been released in Dolby Atmos and many are to come. Join this 3D immersive experience and make your movie Dolby Atmos. Contact me about the possibilities.

“DVS – Navigation” SoundFlow package

SoundFlow app store

With SoundFlow it is possible to automate your Pro Tools workflow. It can speed up repetitive tasks. One of them, which I often use, is jumping around your session. Copy/pasting clips from one location to another. For that reason I made a Navigation package that helps storing the selected track and selection. Either or both can be recalled when needed. This package is now available from the SoundFlow app store for free. Go to the SoundFlow app store and search for “dvs”.

A SoundFlow account is needed to install the package. Trial version of SoundFlow is available.

“Sync”, a documentary about the Dutch World of Dubbing


“Sync” takes you behind the curtain of the mysterious world of foreign language dubbing. Joop van den Beucken and Bob van der Houven, both voice actors themselves, spoke to fellow voice actors, directors, translators, studio owners and an audio technician (me) to reveal this crazy world of voice acting.

Watch the promo on YouTube.

“Sync” will be shown at the Klik! Amsterdam Animation Festival on October 30th.
