Engineer/Producer – Defeater, Bane, Death of A Nation
“I pair the Vanguard V4 gen2 with a LaChapell [preamp]…a little flatter, not too peaky, and I usually hit around 10k on the LaChapell EQ, through the tube on the way in…and I find the perfect level of ‘silk’. That’s what I did on the last record I did and I thought that paired really well.…On the last LP I did, the vocalist loved it.”
Having trained both privately and later at Berklee College of Music, Jay Maas has been entrenched in music from the age of 12. Falling into producing and engineering in 2003 Jay opened Getaway Recording Studio just north of Boston. In 2008 Jay founded the band Defeater (Epitaph Records) writing and producing 4 LPs and 1 EP for the band before parting ways in 2015. Now free from the time constraints of touring, Jay’s sights are set on making artistically compelling and sonically impactful records full time.
