Join Brian Lee White for an in-depth discussion in this video Using common vintage-modeled EQs, part of Audio Foundations: EQ and Filters.
Sometimes I want an EQ that's extremely transparent, almost clinical in…its application.…This sort of tool is great when I don't want to hear the EQ working on the signal.…I just want clean boost or cut without adding any additional character or…driving any additional harmonics.…Other times, I'm looking to add a little extra something to my signals, in…addition to just basic boost or cut of frequencies, and this is when I employ…model vintage EQs in my workflow.…You have to understand that a DAW's recording and mixing facilities are…extremely transparent.…
Even the channel strip EQ and compression rarely add any additional artifacts or…color to the signal.…Personally, I think this is a good thing, because it gives me total control…over my sonic aesthetic.…When I do want to color a signal, drive the harmonic series, and pick up some…extra character, I often use classic EQs in my tracks.…With these, I get sort of a two-for-one situation, by utilizing the EQ controls I…need to shape my instruments, plus a little something special.…
