They present an exciting work in progress and recount how the project began with the teenage artist and was developed under collaboration with producer Scott Storch and others. You'll hear how the original parts underwent drastic transformation thanks to the cutting-edge skills and creativity of those involved. After listening to the rough mix, suggestions are voiced by the guest speakers and seminar attendees. With the Pro Tools session open, Jaycen goes through the elements to apply processing, perform edits, re-arrange parts, and even add new material recorded on location!

Aside from witnessing the value of brainstorming with musical talent, you'll learn about the trio's approach to tackling the record with vital considerations in mind – target audience, playback formats, marketing, culture, and more.
