|Recorded by||Jacquire King|
|Talent||Jamie Lidell & The Royal Pharoahs|
|Mastered by||Richard Dodd|
In this Apollo Artist Session, watch legendary producer Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Tom Waits) track and mix Jamie Lidell’s “Walk Right Back” exclusively through Apollo 8 High-Resolution Interfaces using Unison™-enabled mic preamps at Nashville’s Blackbird Studio.
For the bulk of the live session, including kick, snare, bass, guitar, keys, vocals, and percussion King relied on the Unison™-enabled Neve® 1073TM from the Neve 1073 Preamp & EQ Collection plug-in. The Unison-enabled API Vision Channel Strip plug-in was used on the drum overheads. King also printed his compression, favoring the 1176LN plug-in from the 1176 Classic Limiter Collection on drum overheads, the dbx 160 Compressor/Limiter plug-in on the bass, and a gray Teletronix LA-2A plug-in from the Teletronix LA-2A Classic Limiter Collection on the lead vocal.
For the mixing process, King harnessed the Fairchild Tube Limiter Collection for extensive parallel processing on the drum bus. On his mix bus, King used the Brainworx bx_refinement EQ, Neve 33609® Compressor, Ampex ATR-102 Mastering Tape Recorder, Pultec EQP-1A, and Precision Limiter plug-ins.
Be sure to watch Jacquire’s Shoot Out! Vintage Analog Hardware vs. Apollo & Unison Plug‑Ins for more info on this session, including King’s parallel compression strategies and how he shapes his mix bus.
