Join Brian Lee White for an in-depth discussion in this video Learning to listen , part of Audio Foundations: EQ and Filters.
Applying EQ is all about listening to an audio signal and asking yourself, where…do I want to take this and why?…Approaching every track as if it needs some sort of EQ applied to it without…really having a reason why is a solution in search of a problem, and that's not…how you want to approach EQ.…Define your goals and work toward them.…Try to hear where your signal needs EQ before grabbing the knobs.…It'll be hard at first, and you'll need to practice.…
But in time, you will be surprised at yourself saying things like that…guitar has a bit of resonance around 300 to 400 Hz, and it needs to be carved…out a little.…What you won't find in this course is a laundry list of frequencies for every…instrument telling you how they should be boosted or cut. Why?…Because I don't know what your specific instrument sounds like.…For example, is your acoustic guitar a Jumbo Dreadnought Martin, a cutaway…Taylor, a three-quarter sized guitar?…They all sound very different.…
What type of strings does it have?…What key are you playing it?…
