Brad Boatright

Mastering engineer

As an active recording and touring musician for over thirty years, Brad cut his teeth as the guitarist and vocalist in From Ashes Rise, making music in a scene fraught with challenges to sound quality. He was raised in the North Mississippi Hill Country, surrounded by a rich and historic music scene, and, after studying Recording Industry Technology at Middle Tennessee State University in the late 1990s, Brad armed himself with a healthy obsession with records, sound and music. He's always aimed to overcome challenges independent artists face while helping them realize their vision of sonic perfection. Since founding Audiosiege in 2010, Brad, a self-described "musician's engineer", has mastered hundreds of albums in his studio in Portland, Oregon. Notable among these are Michael Stein and Kyle Dixon's opening sequence and official soundtrack for Netflix's "Stranger Things" series, the reissue of Sleep's monumental "Dopesmoker" LP, as well as records from Corrosion of Conformity, Nails, Beastmilk, Obituary, Yob, and more.

And his collaboration list is really impressive.

"I’ve frequently used subharmonic processors as a cool way to fill out low end. MBassador’s feature set makes it the new champ. The ability to target low end with frequency-specific saturation is awesome. You can be subtle with it, barely audible until you hit the bypass, then immediately miss how the bottom end got filled out so nicely. Or, you can can use it as an effect for rumbling destruction. "

I have been using MeldaProduction's plug-ins for a while now, but am still amazed at the endless possibilities that they have on offer!

MAutoDynamicEQ is one of the most useful tools in my toolbox. It's incredibly powerful and yet clean and surgical.
