"MDrumReplacer is truly an amazing product. It’s light years ahead of any other drum replacement program. The usability, features and sample selection is the best I’ve ever seen. It’s my go-to plugin. My drum tracks have never sounded better."

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

It has been very satisfying for workflow to bring in the MeldaProduction plugins. They are tools to make all your dreams come true. They sound wonderful! There isn't a music production or mix where I don't use Meldaproduction plugins.
