would this only apply if the tracking were stereo, right, and not dual mono? Or mono tracks?

This video is for beginners who are just learning about EQ. Basic concepts (Sound, frequency, frequency bands, 0dB, instruments...) are explained.

here is the link

Graphic eq are of tremendous help. Blindly Sweeping is good for resonances. But sometimes there are very vague problems that need like measly 1-2dB of reduction to fix, and it's impossible to figure out by sweeping the range where something is wrong without looking at the graph... Later when your ears are trained it's less of a problem but for a beginner FabFilter stuff is invaluable.

Here is a great lesson on how to EQ (or at least one of the ways to eq), that I thought some newbies might appreciate:

The engineer in the video is the legend George Massenburg, he has a fantastic ear.


ps. I'm going to sticky this for a while to see if we can get any more responses
pps. The point is to get a collection of videos in this thread, and not links to other sites
Great video.
I watched it cos you can never know too much or know everything.
After watching this I ended up going down the rabbithole and watching two trevor horn videos on the breakdown of Yes's "owner of a lonely heart", followed by a 1 hour 20 minute talk with Bob Power, so I picked up some great tips. Every day's a school day

I have parametric equalizers on my Tascam 4 track cassette. They sound different compared to graphic equalizers.

How about artificial hangover or resonance circuits? You could make circuits like this using transistors.

Lives for gear
I purchased an 8200. I got luckey and found a mint one for $3,000. One of the best EQ's ever. He designed or at least speced that unit I don't know all of it's history. It defined the term perametric EQ. My most used piece of outboard.

RIP. One of the great audio engineers of all time.
