Jan Oostdyk proves to be a natural when it comes to music.

He got himself a computer with the infamous Fast Tracker software together with a Roland Juno 106 synth and started playing around. Around this time he also started to develop himself as a true computer specialist. It showed that his knowledge for music production was congenital and soon he earned his money as a specialist in sound studios and music computer systems. Nowadays Jan has build several music studios for big producers and has a tremendous knowledge for every button, slider, computer, instrument, sequencer and plug-in, but most of all… he’s a real perfectionist!
