EQ Article

So, as promised I wrote up a piece on EQ.

Equalization: Hear Me Out | theProAudioFiles.com

It was pretty stream of consciousness - so if you lambaste the content or writing I won't be offended.

I liked it Thought provoking and personal experience driven, rather than repeating a bunch of textbook knowledge.
Thanks for sharing.

EQ Article

Only few parts that I would talk about different, but who am I..., but good non tech article.

But about sound being eq'd & other factors such as the inherient charastics of any gear is different. Eq is used to make up for what the sound lacks or have to much of naturally captured. And also to compensate for whatever gear it runs thru does to it. So in part the non eq gear imposes tonal changes, not per se "eq'd".

And the next is the peak notch sweep to find nasty freq areas. I find it very helpful. Just don't go crazy on the cuts. At first I would boost, find nasties & cut all the way at that narrow q. Then realized not always works. Smaller cuts with attention to Q.

The types and purposes eq would be good to cover & how to test your analog eq.

And masking, your right, but you gotta listen if it rubs good or bad.

What is a binary beat? How do they occur?
"I hear a "cellphone?" ringing sometimes, but when I solo all the tracks individually I don't?!?!"
**I find that taking place in live recordings more than all keys/dr machines.

Sometimes I wish I was like Spock, do the Vulcan mind meld to help out totally clueless upstarts & neck pinch some!! Haha!!! I sometimes forget how priceless just time spent "truly" working or learning is.

And this is why you should write more. I think those points expand the value of what I wrote. Maybe post this up on the actual article on the site?
