Join Brian Lee White for an in-depth discussion in this video Get in the Mix: EQing FX returns, part of Audio Foundations: EQ and Filters.
…Have you ever heard a mix with what seems like of…impossible amount of reverb or delay, but still remains clear and focused?…It's all about clever use of EQ.…Many people think that EQs are only useful for…directly EQing a signal chain, but they can be just…as powerful when used on the tail end of…a reverb delay, or any effects return, for that matter.…A send and return relationship…is a common routing technique, in which a signal is routed out via a…mixer's send over a bus, and brought back into the mix via a return track.…
Usually with a shared effect applied to the return.…Since the effect lives on the return, many tracks can send…to this bus to take advantage of this same shared effect.…The more output sent to the send, the wetter the balance becomes between the…affected and the dry signal.…This is ideal with effects like reverb and delay, because it takes up less…processing power on the system, and allows…multiple tracks to share the same common space.…While reverbs, delays, and other time-based…effects often have built in EQ's, I…
