I wish I had a fantastic fairy tale to tell about my passion for music, but... well, actually.... it's a fairy tale for me too.


I am now over20 years activein music and have had success as a guitarist, music producer and sound engineer (I was a guitarist inDrain Life, produced the Heavy Metal album Wings byPictureand worked with countless singer-songwriters, beatmakers and rappers).

I am a self-taught musician and started playing guitar in 1994 with some motivation from my father (he was a great Spanish guitar player). Not much later I started recording with some friends on 4- and 8-track mini disk recorders and the predecessors of digital audio workstations (I can't remember the names of the software, lol).


After playing in several bands as a singer, drummer and guitarist, co-founded a metalcore band called Drain Life where we played countless shows in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. During this time I started producing my own band and really getting into this audio thing and after a few releases other bands started approaching me to produce their records from my garage at home.

InJanuary 2016I got the chance to rent a great studio inRidderkerk (place next to Rotterdam) en I decided to quit my 20 year job and pursue my passion and happiness by running a studio. This was one of the best decisions of my life and I have never felt so free and happy. I would advise everyone to follow his passion and work hard for what he wants to achieve.


The simple and clear goal of this studio is to provide "high quality" recordings so that everyone leaves with world class, sonically great and inspiring work!


Due to the best features ofmodern software and vintage outboardthat we have in our studio and go above and beyond to push the sonic boundaries, we create truly unique and great sounding recordings at affordable prices.


We know that all the technology and equipment in the world are not enough to create a great production.It requires creativity, good ears, musicality and great support for our artists who can truly endear a studio and their producers to their customers.

We bring all these properties to you with Red Pack Productions. Of course, don't just take my word for this 🙂Find dozens of experiences from other musicians on google reviews. (grade 4.9)  


I thank you for watching my story and wish you the best of luck with your musical ventures!


Yours sincerely,


Jonathan Merler
