Listen to the track:

Alan and Rafi at the PianoVinnie CGuitar Rig

A classic rock/pop big production. This track was recorded at The Village in Los Angeles, where innumerable hit records have been made including Steely Dan’s Aja and Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk.

ProToolsThe instrumentation is interesting and varied, especially with guitar where a variety of electric guitar parts were recorded including EBow (a hand-held electronic bowing device). The main guitar part is an acoustic guitar, which, using his own time-honored methodology, Alan triple-tracked, using de-tuning. There’s also a mandolin track.

Any drum track featuring Vinnie Colaiuta is going to be a treat to listen to and study. Here, Alan experimented with different mics on the snare, using both a dynamic (Shure SM57) and a condenser (Neumann KM84). When remixing you could choose either, or use a combination of the two. There are also two pairs of distant drums mics - ‘room’ and ‘chamber.’

Also making this session a little unusual are extensive vocals – lead vocal and harmonies plus two sets of choirs: male and female.

This is a large session, with 61 tracks and tons of vocals. We'd advise not making this song your first venture into large scale mixing/remixing.
