The 3 Simple Principles for Great EQ’ing

Understanding the EQ can often feel overwhelming, but learning how to EQ properly is still one of the most important skills you can learn and you can’t overlook it.

Equalization is on every track in modern recording. There is always something added, cut, or filtered.

You hear jargon like: “Boost this frequency”, “put a notch filter on that”, “cut out the high-end.”

However complicated the jargon may sem, the theory of equalization is a simple one. There are only three simple principles you must adhere to when you are EQ’ing your tracks and I created a quick video on Youtube to help you understand EQ better.

EQ’ing all of your tracks together to create separation between your instruments and balance in your mixes is crucial for great mixes and if you’d like to check out an excerpt from EQ Strategies – Your Ultimate Guide to EQ, check out my post: How To Easily EQ All Your Tracks Together for a Clean and Powerful Mix right here.
