EQ (equalization): Learn Reason 9: The Basics

EQ, or equalization, can be used to find the perfect tone for a snare drum, the most pleasing sound for a vocal, or to help a guitar solo cut through the mix. EQ is also important for ensuring that each musical element has a distinct place in the mix, so that these parts do not compete with each other or cause a concentration of too much energy in a particular frequency range in a mix (like the common problem of too much bass energy). Audio engineer and music producer Matt Piper shows you how to use EQ, including high pass filters, to remove unnecessary frequencies from individual instruments, as well as how to boost frequencies to enhance the brilliance of acoustic guitars and to make a kick drum sound big in this online tutorial.
