Top (Pop/Soul)hit in the SOuth of Brazil/Audiostreet +Capella Mix
I am willing to share the production behind these tracks from my recent album, "Deusa De MArfim". (Ivory Goddess)

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 "3XLove + Deusa De Marfim"

Nice sunday!

thanks Alecio !
Pretty Cool Stuff ! Thanks for posting the info on the recording. I see big influences of 80´s type music.. Shalamar comes to mind... hey, I saw in the fine print where Brad Blackwood did the mastering... he´s a fellow gearslut, right ? This is a great community ! Good luck with the new album !
