With the additional production in place, ill and Jared decide they could use a few more adlibs. Once those are tracked, ill focuses on creating a rough mix of the song and preps the multitrack to send to Jimmy Douglass for mixing.

See how ill Factor:

  • Lay down adlib ideas and lower vocal harmonies
  • Tune the new harmonies
  • Enhance the intro by resampling the lead vocal
  • Prep the session to do a rough mix
  • Set up the mix bus for the rough using the HG2 Blackbox, Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor, and Fab Filter Pro-L Limiter
  • Create an outro section
  • Prep the session to export the multitrack for Jimmy Douglass to mix

Watch ill Factor produce “Light Shine Through” from Jared Evan. Only on

ill Factor
Ivan Corraliza, professionally known as ill Factor, began creating music where most everyone begins, in the bedroom fueled by ambition and a dream to turn his hobby into a full-time job. Countless hours of music-making and tweaking led to some moments of frustration while trying to get his music noticed. However, everything changed when Ivan sought out a mentor and was blessed to be taken under the wing of Jimmy Douglass. Jimmy is a veteran in the music industry with more than forty-plus years of experience working with artists from Aretha Franklin to Justin Timberlake. He began sharing his network and insights into the Industry with Ivan, which helped Ivan create relationships with artists and industry professionals, turning his hobby of making music into a career.
