Continuing with the mix of "Keep The Light On," Jacquire works on the guitars, revisits the toms, and explains his monitoring levels when he's working on the track's energy and when he is working on the details.

See how Jacquire King:

  • Works on the verse guitars
  • Explains his preference for Toms in the mix
  • Adds dimension to the main verse guitar with a slap delay
  • Adds a Primal Tap delay to the lead verse guitar for color, stereo width, and to help it sit perfectly in the mix
  • Explains how adding a tiny amount of top-end eq boost on a guitar can change the focus and accentuate a guitar part
  • Explains how he finds the perfect level for the lead vocal

That Helios bump at 60 Hz is only in the legacy plugin, not the newer one.
