Wiek Hijmans - Ladder of Escape 16 - Electric Language

reamping engineer

For these solo electric guitar pieces virtuoso Wiek Hijmans had already recorded his parts using a DI and an amp simulator for monitoring. To get sounds that ended up on the record when went to the 'vintage amp Valhalla' the Music Matrix Studio.

For each piece we would try out various amp/pedal and mic combinations. Because the actual performance was already done we could focus completely on the sheer sound, which I enjoyed a lot.
