While equalization (EQ) is a straightforward process, it’s only used in a few circumstances. Specifically, EQ is used to correct sound, play with the interaction of multiple sounds, or for creative effects. One way to make EQ simple is to not search too critically for mistakes. If you assume that the engineer got the track perfect, then you will only reach for EQ when it’s really necessary. Also, imagine what the final track should sound like in your head, then work toward that. Try utilizing subtractive EQ more often than boosting. Sometimes less is just simply more. Finally, just go for it and make your goal giving the listener the best experience possible.
- EQ is a straightforward process used only in certain circumstances, such as to correct sound or when mixing interacting sounds together.
- One way to use EQ effectively is to assume that the producer got the track perfect and make changes only when they are really necessary.
- Don’t overthink EQ, just work with the end goal of giving the listener the most enjoyable experience possible.
