In this installment of the Foundations of Audio series, author Brian Lee White shows producers and audio engineers how to properly apply equalization (EQ) and improve the sound of their mixes. The course covers the use of parametric and graphic EQs—and filters such as the high/low pass filters and shelf filters—in a variety of musical settings. These principles can be applied to any digital audio workstation platform, including Logic and Pro Tools, as well as analog workflows.
If you're a Premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library or if you're watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you also have access to the raw audio material used to create the exercise content, as well as many other audio examples featured throughout the course. Inside the Exercise Files folder, you'll find a folder for each chapter containing the WAV files used throughout the course. These files can be imported into your own digital audio workstation and used to follow along with the material. If you're a Monthly member or Annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to the RAW audio files, but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets.
For members at all subscription levels, I provided you with guiding exercise content in the form of Get in the Mix demonstration sessions that you can open up in your own DAW. Watch the video about the Get in the Mix content to learn more about this unique learning experience. Let's get started!
