Who am I ?

Hi, I’m Jan Harries.

I grew up with music, and various instruments that our parents provided.
Very early music and sounds became my favorite thing, and I wanted to learn the piano.

At age 12, my brother and me had a little 3 man Rockband that our school headmaster “Madsen” had initialized. My brother on bass, me on guitar, Henrik on drums.

One year later i began to play a violin that i got from grandfather, and then came 1985 where I got a home computer, a Commodore 64.
It has a small synthesizer chip, and i could finally begin creating electronic music.

Later I started using some synthesizers, and VST.

VST Effect Plugins

For mixing and mastering, I use mainly these VST and DAW’s

Izotope Ozone
to process most aspects of the sound

Cytomic The Glue Compressor
to give your drums and bass the extra nudge, if needed

Kotelnikov Compressor
more extra nudges, but not so violent as “The Glue”

Infected Mushroom Pusher
some types of music benefit from this, but it ain’t classical 🙂

Youlean Loudness Meter
it is used to control the final volume output, so that published music on Apple Music and Spotify will have room to add their “Loudness” (-13 LUFS)

Renoise (DAW)
this is a music “Tracker” which I use for composing and mixing. It has many built in effects of various sorts

Studio One (DAW)
also used for composing, mixing, mastering
