Master EQ And Tune Your Song To Perfection!
Equalization or “EQ” as it’s commonly referred to, is the most basic, but important effect you’ll apply to your tracks and recordings. But do you really know how to effectively use it, or better yet, how to not use it? Well, I am back yet again with another truly awesome training tutorial video series, “EQ”.
I start at the beginning, with the frequency spectrum and the important relationship between frequencies, musical pitches, and harmonics. Next are filters and how they work and interact with your sound. I will then demystify Low & Hi Pass Filters, Band Pass & Reject Filters, Shelving EQ, Graphic Equalizers and Parametric EQ’s. I then wrap up the first category with essential tips, strategies and creative ways to use Spectral and EQ Matching plug-ins.
I then continue by demonstrating how EQ is used within a mix to separate instruments in similar tonal ranges, and blend others. And finally, how to listen and compare sections of a song with and without EQ and how to use Linear Phase EQ for subtle, broad strokes on a finished stereo mix.
The practice of using EQ is one that you can never know enough about. Even if you have some experience using EQ, it’s a great idea to learn other approaches for using it. So dig in and learn to sculpt your sound like a true sonic artist… Get “EQ” today!
