While Kolton Lee is over in the Fabulous Room doing the final touches on the vocals for "Keep The Light On," Jacquire and Danny Pellegrini complete the editing for the instrumental tracks and augment the drums with the samples they recorded from Bryan's kit.

Watch as Jacquire and Danny:

  • Clean up the release of the Juno pads in the pre-chorus
  • Check polarity on the electronic samples, and replace where needed
  • Create custom samples from the recording of Bryan's kit and load them into Slate Digital's Trigger plugin

See how Kolton:

  • Imports the vocal work he did in the Fabulous Room to Jacquire and Danny's latest version of the session
  • Dials in the vocoder tracks with the latest editing and tuning
  • Renders different chords with the vocoder to match the harmonic structure of the song

This is a chance to see the extra bit of polish that world-renowned producer and mixing engineer, Jacquire King, adds to his productions before entering the mixing stage.
