JAYCEN JOSHUA, DAVE PENSADO Carol Souki “Playa” Deconstructing A Mix 41 TUTORIAL

We’re back at Studios La Fabrique for another chapter featuring the prestigious team of Dave Pensado and Jaycen Joshua! Together the pair tackle the mix of ‘Playa’ by Carol Souki, with Jaycen building its foundations and Dave polishing the vocals. We hit the ground running with Joshua getting straight to the essentials of enhancing clarity, separation, and overall impact of the material. He cycles through all parts of the session, comments on the tracks, and instinctively starts to carve, compress, gate, and more. Using common plug-ins and straightforward techniques, Jaycen remarkably transforms the mix to sound louder and more detailed while maintaining a voltage almost identical to that of the rough. Pensado then takes the wheel for an in-depth demonstration on how to craft an “expensive” sounding female pop vocal. You’ll learn how he alters levels for intelligibility and emotion, layers effects, applies modulation as pitch correction, and much more!
