RBS/The Producers Workshop
A digital recording studio for the production of commercials, soundtracks for film and video, IVR and voiceprompts, educational projects, audio books, audio for games, audio for websites, etc. Renowned since 1975 for creativity and quality. Almost every advertising agency in and around Rotterdam has been in at some stage. For the production of a radio commercial, or for some music to be composed. Agencies from Amsterdam (centre of the Dutch advertising market) also get down to us here in this city on the Maas, and the Dutch broadcasting services (NOS) regularly use our ISDN facilities for interviews between Rotterdam and Hilversum. The studio is also known internationally. The ISDN connections are regularly used by studios in almost all the capital cities of Europe, and beyond. After a performance in the Ahoy stadium super-rapper Coolio laid down vocal tracks for his new CD. At the other end of the ISDN-line, a studio in Los Angeles did the final mix that very night. Something similar happened with singer Debby Harry, known from the legendary group Blondie. Her colossal black limousine took up three parking places for a whole day. Fortunately there’s no shortage of parking space at RBS.

Specialists
RBS/The Producers Workshop is exactly what the name suggests. Not just advanced technology, but also the technical and musical expertise needed to use it to optimum effect. RBS/The Producers Workshop is all about people.

René van Broekhoven
René van Broekhoven started out as a journalist and later on an audiovisual producer. Insight into communications and a talent for writing are second nature to him. In recent decennia he has had wide experience as a (voice) director and has himself spoken in hundreds of voice-overs. He received his technical training on an APRS Course at the University of Guildford in Surrey and subsequently in sound recording studios in the Netherlands and abroad. For many years now he has also been a vocational teacherfor up-and-coming professionals. René too has a good feel for music. He plays piano, guitar, percussion, and sings. And for years he’s been combining these skills in his role as a composer for radio and television commercials.

Working with René guarantees you a faultless and communicative use of language, and an optimal performance from the voice actor(s). Not to mention his creativity.
