How To Achive A W - Mix Like In Outcast (Hey Ya!) Song? [Example Inside]



I wanted to know how was this mix achieved? My main concern is how they got the guitar to be panned the way it is?

Do you have to pan the guitar manually by duplicating it and then doing a hard left and right pan or can this be achieved with a plug-in of some sort?

Any insight would be great, thanks....

I know that PSP makes a stereo enhancer, That would probably be your best bet.

Also, tracking 2 guitar takes, panning each one hard left and hard right would also work great.

No stereo enhancer will match 2 separately recorded guitar takes panned hard left and hard right. The slight variation in playing from each take "enhances" the stereo field.

I personally like to not only record separate takes, but use a different mic placement, chord voicing, and sometimes different guitar for each take.

You could copy the track, pan them hard left and right, delay one by a couple of milliseconds and put small bit of chorus on it.

Double tracking is the better method though. Same goes for background vocals.
