Proficient in multiple areas of audio engineering, Ashlee offers a wide variety of services to meet your audio requirements, whether that be in the studio or at a gig!
Ashlee is an audio engineer located in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria.
Ashlee discovered her passion for audio after playing drums in a high school band. After quickly realising that she preferred setting up and packing away all of the instruments and microphones rather than performing, she began researching potential careers. A few years later, Ashlee started studying at the Australian College of the Arts, where she completed a Bachelor's Degree in Audio Production.

Interview with Ash Brown Audio
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is the project (eg single, EP, album or other)? What is the timeline of the project? Do you have any reference tracks? Do you have any demos? What is your budget for the project?
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started studying Audio Engineering in February 2019 and I started my own small audio business in December 2020.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: This is something I learnt from a producer I look up to, that completely changed my perspective of mixing: You never complete a mix, you just stop working on it.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: The genres I usually work on include pop, indie rock, and acoustic. However, I am open to working on different genres as well.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I start with the editing process, which includes comping, reducing cymbal spill and using beat detective (if drums are apart of the song), and gain staging. When this is complete, I move on to mixing. I create a balance of all the instruments and apply processing such as EQ and compression, and effects such as reverb and delay. Once the client is satisfied with the final mixes, I begin mastering. This involves applying the finishing touches and making the song/s release-ready.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: The producers that inspire me are Aubrey Whitfield, Anna Laverty, Jane Arnison, and Lilith Lane.
