My name is Bradly Miranda. I am a music producer, recording engineer, mixing engineer, mastering engineer, and songwriter. I have been working in the music industry for the last five years and I love it. I primarily work out of Monkey Trench Studios, which is owned and operated by punk rock legend Mike Herrera of MxPx.

Producing: I maintain a comfortable atmosphere, while coaching musicians to get their best possible performance in recording. My work with vocalists ensures a quality vocal take. I am also available for consulting on songs, both in music and lyric composition. My goal in producing is to create the highest quality record, while maintaining a band’s individual style.

Recording: I am fast and efficient with Pro Tools and I have a strong knowledge of studio workflow. I have a great understanding of microphones and outboard equipment, and I have worked on consoles such as the SSL 4000G+ analog console, Neotek Elite console, C24, and D-Control control stations.

Editing & Mixing: I offer a variety of services to enhance a recording, including but limited to vocal and drum editing. My mixing services include compressing, equalizing, and sonically balancing the recording. These services are available for all recorded material from home to studio recordings.

Mastering: Mastering is the final process after recording and mixing. It is the last step right before CD duplication. This process would include fade in and outs of each song, audio tuning and sweetening to make the songs sound consistent, and compression to give a record a nice squeeze. I offer affordable mastering. This service is available for all recorded material, whether I mixed it or not.

Reviews of Bradly Miranda

    Bradly is amazing at what he does. Little Queenie, my newest CD (released in July 2016) would not have happened at all without Bradly, but more than that, the way he mixed and mastered the sound is just outstanding. I could hardly believe that my little songs became the songs on that CD. I look forward to working with him again as soon as I can.

    Bradly made my record sound incredible! His involvement with the songs and the project made him feel like the fifth band member. He's fun, energetic and has a very efficient work ethic.

    Brad is very talented and creative. He has a great understanding of complex systems and work flow. He always brings a positive, fun attitude to each of his projects. He is not only a fantastic audio engineer but also incredible music producer. I loved working with Brad!

    Bradly in my opinion is the best at what he does! Ive gotten to work with multiple producers but none have been able to make recording such an amazing experience. I believe that no other producer can put as much heart into their work as Bradly.

Interview with Bradly Miranda

What are you working on at the moment?
I recently flew down to Santa Ana, California to record the band MxPx's live album. I am now in the process of mixing the album for the DVD. I'm also mixing Letters' new record, and I am currently producing solo artist Linda Nicole Blair's EP.
Analog or digital and why?
There are advantages and disadvantages to both of them, so I prefer to use what I have available. Analog compressors and EQs definitely sound better than most plugins out there. I love the UAD plugins because they are based on real analog equipment, and they sound great!
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
My computer, UA Apollo, Shure SM-7 Microphone, Teletronix LA-2A, and my in-ear monitors.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I have been working in the music industry for the last six years. I interned at a recording studio, and I became an engineer fairly quickly. I also received a Bachelor of Science degree in Audio Design Technology.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I run a Universal Audio Apollo Quad for my recording and mixing setup, and i mainly use UAD plugins. I love the UAD plugins because they are modeled after analog hardware. I recently purchased a UAD Satellite, so I can add more plugins to my mixes. My mixes sound awesome because I'm using the best gear on the market.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Neal Avron is my favorite music producer of all time. I love the records he produced, and I love his process on recording and mixing. John Feldmann is another producer I look up to. I love his songwriting capabilities and his ideas.
