    I am willing to share the production behind this bonus track from my recent album, "Deusa De MArfim".

    No autotune and similar tools were used, all vocals performed by the same person.

    Just layering of several tracks, going from 6 to 18 tracks., EQing and panning trajectories.

    You may listen to it on here: "A.C à Capella"


    You may also download the Top1/Top2 hit here in the south of Brazil and at Audiostreet.net "3XLove + Deusa De Marfim"

    Nice sunday!

    Top notch vocal production! Do you have downloads available so that we may listen in our non-internet studios? Also, assuming this track has instruments, do you have a version with the band that we could hear? Or, even better, just the band?

    Hi David

    If you examine the link, there is an option to listen to all the 8 songs at the page and download two.
    Here is the list in there:

    Pra Começar De novo

    Thanks for your interest. Also planning to put it on CDbaby or Itunes.
    Maybe it could be a great idea to have such option here at Chris site?

    Most vocals used a slight subtrative EQ towards 230, 8k, a hishelf arond 5.3k and a HPF starting at 65Hz.

    Most vocals were compressed with a setting like: threshold:-14dB, ratio 4:1, Attack:50mS, release:500mS.

    BAss guitar and clean electric guitars also employed similar settings, having CB2 and/or LA2A as the most important plug-ins.

    Most guitars were tracked with Amp Farm+Sans Amp. Also utilized Vintage Warmer, TC Chorus, Waves Q10 for subtrative EQ mostly.
