Enrich the music world
Meet our small but dedicated team
DuTCH.audio emerged under the visionary leadership of Jeffrey de Gans, a highly regarded mastering engineer residing from the Netherlands. Jeffrey's journey into the world of music and audio technology began with crafting his own studio equipment. As he delved deeper into the industry, he realized that the market lacked products that truly met his standards. In response, he took matters into his own hands, designing a mastering-console and monitor-controller tailored to his specific needs. The overwhelmingly positive feedback on these creations gave rise to the IM series insert machine and the birth of DuTCH.audio.
Jeffrey was born in 1971 and became obsessed with music, sound and technique during early childhood. At the age of 10 he started messing with tapedecks, mixers and turntables and playing his sisters disco records. At the age of 14, he had his own pirate radio-station where he build his own transmitters and compressors. Half way of the 80ties, he worked for a drive-in-show as well as for several other radio-stations. During the 1990s and early 2000s, Jeffrey was a prolific producer and DJ, with over 70 vinyl records to his name, and he showcased his DJing talent at numerous parties across the globe.
Jeffrey's passion extends beyond music, as he's a connoisseur of espresso, always fine-tuning espresso-machines to achieve the perfect shot. This same dedication to perfection echoes in DuTCH.audio's equipment. Always striving for that extra touch of excellence and continually enhancing features, Jeffrey never settles for anything less than the best.
