Join Yeuda Ben-Atar for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding EQ to the mix, part of Up and Running with Ableton Live 9.
The EQ Eight device in Live is a powerful tool.…We can use it to sculpt the different elements of the song to make them…work better together.…Let's go to the Live browser. Under Audio Effects, let's navigate to the EQ…Eight and drag it to the guitar track.…We can see it under the Device view.…Let's solo the guitar track, go to the Arrangement, and let's loop a section a…where the guitar is playing. (music playing)…The EQ Eight has eight multimode filters that can shape the sound.…
We also have a spectrum analyzer, which would analyze the frequency response in the audio.…So if we play it, we can see activity goes in the frequency display.…Let's play it and take a look.…(music playing)…So we can see we have a lot of activity below 100 hertz.…Now because this is not a kick or bass, we don't really need any low-end information.…So I'm going to change filter number 3 to low cut,…and I'm going to cut from around 90 hertz.…
You can also change the previously chosen filter point using these three knobs:…
