About Me




About Me

Hi there!

My name is Rick Hoekman ('72) and I have been active in the audio field for more than 25 years. Started to write and program audio when the first home computers were hitting the market at the age of 14. The first years were dedicated to writing music and designing sound-effects for several videogames during the ’80 and ’90.

My main focus of expertise lies in audio restoration. Especially cleaning up unwanted elements like background noise during an interview or dialogue.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

Best regards,
Rick Hoekman
Audio Mastering


Over the years, with always a keen ear for quality and getting that ‘big’ analog sound, I started to develop my own signature sound and got asked by several producers to record, mix and master their tracks.

Although, I still love doing the occasional mastering for a good artist. I'm still focused on audio repair & enhancement these days, so I only accept new mastering projects thru SoundBetter.com
