Jokers, Jacks & Kings: 'Sea Of Leaves'
Use the link above to download the full Steinberg Cubase project for my remix of Jokers, Jacks & Kings’s ‘Sea Of Leaves’, as featured in Sound On Sound magazine’s April 2012 Mix Rescue article. This mix was carried out in Cubase v6.0.0, using a variety of third-party plug-ins to supplement Cubase’s own internal processing. All the project’s audio files are provided in the ZIP archive’s ‘Audio’ folder. Please be very careful when playing back this project for the first time, because if your installed plug-ins vary from mine then you may get unexpectedly high output levels from some tracks!
The ZIP archive's 'Screens' folder contains bitmap images of the settings for all the third-party plug-ins I used, so you can see all my settings even if you don't have all the same plug-ins installed. I've named the image files according to track number and plug-in slot number, so it should be pretty quick to find what you're looking for. Where there's more than one important page of settings in the plug-in GUI I've created several images of the same plug-in and added a suffix letter to differentiate them. If I've used any impulse responses, those should be in a separate 'ImpulseResponses' folder.
- Raw Multitracks: You can find the unprocessed multitracks for this mix in the 'Mixing Secrets' Free Multitrack Download Library if you fancy remixing it for yourself from scratch.
- My Track Colouring Conventions: As anyone who’s seen the Mix Rescue screenshots in the magazine will know, I normally colour tracks by instrument: yellow for drums/percussion; red for bass; orange and blue for guitars, keyboards, and other track fillers; and pink for lead and backing vocals. In addition, I tend to colour effects returns purple and any added audio I’ve put in (eg. overdubs, samples, or synths) green.
- Further Questions? If you would like any further information out this project, let me know and I’ll try to add it to these notes in due course.
