Adam Lee - Lead Audio Engineer
Ten years ago I bought my first 4 track real to real (Teac 3340) when I was a freshman in highschool. Since then I have accumulated a studio full of gear and have been recording bands/singer songwriters whenever I can.
I attended recording classes at MCC in Mesa Arizona under the great engineer Andy Seagle (Paul McCartney, Bela Fleck, Glen Campbell). I moved to Portland, Oregon in 2009 and built a studio in my basement where I have been working on projects ever since. We offer a fun, productive, flexable, comforatable and proffesional expierence at The Magdalena. Contact me at Thisisadamlee@gmail.com if you have any questions about the gear or studio.

Audio Engineering and Management: Jesse McNeill
Jesse is the sound guy. He can be found behind his MacBook Pro wearing headphones, or on his Windows desktop machine bumping his studio monitors.
Other times you'll see him tinkering with custom guitar amplifiers, running mic cables, or browsing endless sample libraries. He also likes to spin his reel-to-reel tracking deck and frequently complains about low quality music files. With an unnatural obsession with media software, Jesse works on music projects around the clock. We're not sure how he manages all of it, but he really can rock Cubase, Nuendo, Melodyne, FL Studio, Ableton, and any file type that you can deliver.
Jesse is a Portland, Oregon sound engineer who loves the city music scene. He's been working with local artists for more than 15 years, and studied sound engineering at Portland Community College.
"My sole responsibility is to coordinate the development of media. With professional training in audio engineering and video production I bring a versatile skill set to the team."
Web Development: Sheldon Kreger
Sheldon Kreger is known as "the web guy." He is typically seen in front of a laptop, behind a drum set, or flinging weight over his head. With years of experience building sites using Wordpress, Drupal, and Joomla, Sheldon is ready to handle any web project you can conjure up. In fact, he built this site using Drupal 7.
Sheldon manages three personal web sites. The first is a drum blog, the second is an authority site about personality development, and third is the home page of Sheldon Kreger.
