Lesson 3 – EQ Techniques


Knowing how to effectively EQ is something that will clean up your mixes tremendously.

Things to remember:

- Always bypass, see how things sound with and without EQ

- Sweep your frequencies, listen for the “sweet spot”

- Don’t over do it! Sometimes subtractive EQ (lowering of frequency levels) can be more effective than additive EQ (boosting of frequencies)

- Hi-Pass filters are great for instant mix clean ups, it’s a good idea to hi-pass every track except the low end tracks like bass and kick.

- And, as always, trust your ear. If it doesn’t sound good to you, it probably doesn’t sound good!
