United States-based engineer Tom Durack (pictured) recently finished mixing a new album for Virgin France artist Étienne Daho at Plus XXX in Paris, using the facility’s new Solid State Logic 9088 XL K console. The album, entitled Re-evolution, was produced by Daho in conjunction with musician Bertrand “Mako” Blais and will be released in November.

Plus XXX’s XL console, which was installed last year as part of a major refit of Studio 2, has been used by Keziah Jones to mix the album Black Orpheus with Grammy Award-winning Russell “Dragon” Elevado, and by Susheela Raman, who worked on an album project with producer Stuart Bruce.

Durack found his experience working on the Daho album to be rewarding. “Studio 2 at Plus XXX is one of my favorite mix rooms in the world,” he enthused. “The SSL sound has been an important part of my mixes for 15 years, and the XL K is the best-sounding analog console I’ve ever used, bar none.”
