I have a whole lot more. In the upcoming days I will organise them into categories like interview, sound design, music etc etc.

Edit: updated my post with a few new articles and new layout and categories, if you want to add any articles, just send me a pm or a mail to musicproductions@jaapvisser.com or reply here and I add them to the list.
I will add on a frequent base new ones and I just made a start now so you can see how and what.

I have added 9 new articles.

All articles with a "*" are new articles and I will update that everytime I add new articles so it is a bit easier to check what is new and what not.

Enjoy!

Edit: feel free to send me articles as well if you find some. The more, the better and I will add the name from the person who has send them in.
You can send the link(s) in a PM or in mail to musicproductions [at] jaapvisser.com or simply post them here.

There's too much good stuff here to let this thread possibly slip into obscurity. Perhaps the mods can make it a sticky?

Thanks Brian :)

I will try to update it everytime before it slips away. Even when it slips away we have our kindly Nathan who doesn't mind opening it again (like last time :P).
