Profile Info

Name

Victor van Dijk

DAW

Ableton Live 10.1, Avid Sibelius

Languages

Dutch (my mother tongue), English, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Norwegian (and no, I'm not bragging, I REALLY have an active knowledge of ALL of these languages!)

Skill Set

I have a basic knowledge of Ableton Live 10.1, and fairly good knowledge of Avid Sibelius, and know quite a bit about music, both actively (playing and composing), and passively (true-listening skills and veeeeerrrryyy broad music taste / knowledge)

Instruments

As a child, I played the 80-bass accordion, and later I played the trumpet in a drum / show band. Age 13, I started to play the Spanish nylon-string guitar and for several years, I was taught how to play classical and bossa nova music on that instrument. In the 80's, in Amsterdam, I went to a Brazilian percussion workshop. Then begin 90's, I attended a workshop in several international vocal styles.
These days, I 'only' play on my computer 😉 PLUS on my semi-acoustic, nylon-string guitar.

Gear

I have a self-built computer with 16 Gigs of RAM, and PLENTY (TB) of hard drive(s) space, thanks to my Drobo 5D, and internal RAID! Further, a Focusrite 2i4, a Beyerdynamic DT-770 PRO headphone, a 24" Dell computer monitor, many external USB hard drives, and soon, I'll be receiving a brand new pair of Neumann KH 120 A monitors (my very first 'real' monitors). And I have an array of good mics, AKG SE 300-B with all sorts of capsules (cardioid, super-cardioid, omni); a Shure SM58; a Rode NTG-3; a Rode NT-1; a Rode M3; a Sennheiser reporter mic (forgot the model from the top of my head); a Vicoustic mic screen (forgot how it's called, such a half-circle thingy); 1 'normal' mic stand with clip, and a smaller one (for recording my guitar)
