Today’s featured cue is from The Amazing Race 22 (2012), accompanying teams racing on Jet Skis (hence the title). The creative brief was simple: write a pulse-pounding Race cue to supercharge the action of the scene.
In preparing for today’s Featured Cue, I took the opportunity to remix this demo version from the ground up—going back to the original tracks and stripping out all the EQ, reverb, compression and other settings and starting from scratch. In the nearly seven years since I wrote the piece, music technology has improved, with new plug-ins and updated versions of old favorites lending an even greater amount of space, punch and detail to the finished product.
Before I uploaded the version you’re hearing today. I did an A-B comparison with the “finished” 2012 version, and there’s no contest: This cue has come a long way.
