Now it’s time to add the other instruments into the mix. Again, use varispeed to help you transcribe the instrumental parts from the original.
There are three guitar parts, all using stock factory EXS guitar sounds – a mute part down the middle of the mix, a Reggae-ish skank to the left and a simple part on beats two and four to the right.
The chord scheme is B flat major, C minor, A flat major, E flat major. Try a bit of subtle compression, short reverbs and some EQ to remove unwanted lows and brighten the sounds, plus a little high-mid boost to help the guitars cut through. Using the enveloper plug-in helps to boost the attack transients and shape the decay of the left and right parts. We’ve also thrown in the guitar amp plug-in on the right-hand part to dirty up the sound, and added some quite severe panning to help de-clutter the guitar parts and separate them from each other.
