The Song:

In our recent video Jacquire King Mixing James Bay, we watched as Jacquire recalled the session for James Bay’s “Let It Go” and broke down each element of the song; discussing the decisions he made as the producer while he created his mix with expansive detail on his approach.

Now it’s your turn to sit in Jacquire’s chair and mix “Let It Go” from James Bay for a chance to win one of three prize packages featuring the amazing Empirical Labs Arouser plugin, as seen used by Jacquire on his mix, as well as a pureMix Pro Membership.

How To Win:

Mixing is an art form, the winner will be chosen based on the judges' TASTE. There are no absolute rules. Don’t be upset if your version of this mix does not make it to the top.

The pureMix team will listen to ALL of the mixes and pick 3 winners.

Here are a couple tangible suggestions to carve your way to be the potential winning mixer:

  • Upload your mix before February 19th, 2019
  • Make sure you send in the right song (Don’t laugh, it happens quite a bit)
  • Don’t send the mentor’s original mix hoping that we won’t notice (Don’t laugh, it happens quite a bit)
  • Make sure the vocal/drums/bass/guitars are not muted in your mix. Especially the lead vocal. (We think the production was quite nice and would love to hear all of it.)
  • Don’t change the tempo/key/arrangement. This is a MIXING challenge.
  • Louder is not better, we level match everything before we listen (You know who you are)
  • Consider using the pureMix LUFS Analyzer to help reach a reasonable final level!

Good luck!
