Pro Audio Files brings us six ways to easily use EQ. The first tip is assume that the audio is already perfect and doesn't need a lot of work. This will keep you from overdoing it. The second tip is hear it in your head; and the third tip is to not just automatically fix everything on the first listen. Fourth, a slight boost can help you hear mistakes that may be there. Fifth, there's a place for subtractive EQ. And lastly, don't over think it.
- One mistake commonly made is looking for an excuse to do more than required – look for excuses not to EQ
- Don’t boost narrow resonances and only do so if you truly hear a frequency that is poking out
- Unless you want more of something, subtractive EQ is the method preferred
