Shows how to properly apply equalization (EQ) to improve the sound of a mix.
- Hi, I'm Brian Lee White and welcome to Foundations of Audio: EQ and Filters. In this course, we'll look at a variety of equalizer and filter techniques, including parametric, shelving, high-pass, and low-pass filter shapes. I'll start by covering the fundamentals of a sound wave's frequency and amplitude. Then I'll break down the common controls of an EQ and show you how to create definition, clarity, and focus in your mix.
? You say you love me ? But you won't come down ? I'll demonstrate how to EQ in context and create complementary EQ curves, use EQ in unique and creative ways to find a signature sound, and effectively read a real-time frequency analyzer. I'll then explain how to EQ your FX returns to increase mix clarity and shape the tails of reverb and delay. I'll cover techniques including frequency bracketing, EQ automation, and using software models of vintage hardware.
Lastly, I'll discuss best practices for when and how to use EQ and filters in your mixes. (guitar strumming) Throughout the course, I'll also provide you with guided exercise content in the form of Get in the Mix demonstration sessions that you can open up in your own digital audio workstation. Now, let's get started with Foundations of Audio: EQ and Filters.
