In this new video, Joe focuses on implementing “fake strings” within a song, and in particular, how to do it using volume automation.

It’s not appropriate for every song and needs to be applied carefully, with proper use of volume automation helping in getting it integrated appropriately into the mix. In other words, serving good purpose in the song without being too prominent—or, well, fake.

The video also serves as an overall primer on volume automation during the recording phase, as opposed to waiting until the end of the song. And as always, Joe provides examples, utilizing a track he’s currently working on to reinforce the discussion.
