Join Brian Lee White for an in-depth discussion in this video Get in the Mix: Using EQ to fix problems and place elements in the mix, part of Audio Foundations: EQ and Filters.
…EQ can be used to repair signal's frequency response…and create a more idealized representation of the recording.…Likewise, EQ can be used to fit the…resulting fixed signal into the rest of the mix.…Complementing the other elements.…Because of this I often like to break my EQ approach into two parts.…I start by considering the signal by itself, and listen for anything…that sounds out of place, like too much frequency build-up or…resonance from improper mic placement or…background noises recorded with the signal.…
At this stage, I may use EQ to attempt to correct these issues…before I try to place my signal into the rest of the mix.…I call this stage Corrective EQ.…This is the one place where I think it's okay to listen critically…in isolation, with the track soloed. During this stage, I'm…usually cutting or removing frequencies from the signal, rather than boosting.…After getting rid of things I know I don't want in the…signal, I proceed to the most important stage of the EQing process.…
EQing in context.…
