Houston, TX (December 27, 2005)–Houston recording artist/singer Seth Perez has been working on his debut album, The Lemonade Sessions at Sunrise Sound Studios. Perez laid his blend of dance, pop and soul music down to 2″ tape, with the help of engineer Cedrick Courtois, who also mastered the record.
Courtois described his signal chain during mastering, “I had Pro Tools 24-bit stereo files sent through a Manley Massive Passive to a Tube Tech Stereo Multiband Compressor and finally through a Dominator II peak limiter to a Apogee PSX 100 96kHz 24 bit Converter. I noticed that the mixes were a bit too narrow, so I added a Vitalizer to add a little width.”
Perez recorded the album in Sunrise Sound’s Grey Room, which is equipped with a “massive” SSL G+ console with 152 channels available for mixing, Pro Tools, and twin Otari MTR-90 2” 24-track machines that can handle 48 tracks of analog recording.
