Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing sound with the EQ 3 7-band equalizer, part of Audio Post Workflow with Final Cut Pro X v10.1.x and Pro Tools.
- The equalizer is possibly the most powerful…sound processing tool we have,…because it can fine-tune specifics…of the audio spectrum that we hear.…In this movie, I'll show you how to hone in on…unwanted audio so you can make your clips sound better.…As you might have noticed, the John Downey interview…in the kitchen has a lot of noise in it.…Let's open a real time EQ7 plugin…from our inserts menu on that track…to see if we can do something about this.…Just click on any of the available insert slots,…and under the plugin EQ, you see…the EQ3 seven-band equalizer.…
That's the one we're going to use.…The EQ3 seven-band EQ comes with Pro Tools,…and it gives us a really nice display to work with.…Audio frequencies are measured in Hertz.…At the far left, we see 20 Hertz.…This is the lowest-pitch sound our ears can hear.…I'm talking about earthquakes, low rumbles, thunder,…these are the kind of sounds that have frequency information…down here at this range.…At the top end, we see 20K.…This means 20 kilohertz.…It's the same as 20,000 Hertz.…
