Musician | Composer | Producer | Mixer
"Unlike many other plugin manufacturers, MeldaProduction is embracing the next generation of engineers, mixers, producers, and artists. This forward-thinking approach is reflected in the design and build of their products: they allow the novice instant gratification through presets and the experienced producer unmatched control under the hood."
