Dutch number 1 CHR station Qmusic goes Grand with its imaging


The number 1 CHR station in the Netherlands, Qmusic which recently received the prestigious Marconi Award for Best Radio Station has chosen FX library Grand FX 2 to enhance their imaging.

Niels de Koning, Imaging Director Qmusic tells: “There’s an obvious reason why this library is called Grand FX 2. It’s big and it has a big variety in FX that fit seamlessly with the sound of our station.”

Qmusic is using the 450 FX, Work Parts and Beds in the Grand FX 2 library to its full extent: “All FX are very usable and the elements have lots of impact and sound very clean which I really like”, explains De Koning of Qmusic.

For all stations that also want to make their imaging sound Grand, Sticky FX now has a Flash Sale with Grand FX 2 for a limited time only at stickyfx.com that gives you a discount of 100 euro on this library.

The sound of Grand FX 2 fits perfectly with how we want the imaging of Qmusic to sound.”

Modern sound

The library from Sticky FX is compatible with CHR, Hot AC but also Greatest Hits formats. Maurice Verschuuren, Imaging Director of Feel Good Radio in the Netherlands agrees: “For Feel Good Radio we needed a fresh and modern sound, but one that would fit with the Classic Hits format.
