thanks!what kind of practices are we talking about? just basic "mix as many things as you can" and get an ear for it, or are there frequency tests i can give myself?
another question is, whats my initial goal in EQing? Am i EQing to make it (any medium being used, like instruments, vocals, etc) sound like how i am hearing?im thinking that i should EQ how i hear it and cut off parts that could be masking with other frequencies, but this means that i have to EQ every single instruments and vocals, etc?
And, of course, all of this sits in the context of trying to use EQ as little as possible...instead trying to get the right sound recorded the right way to begin with through the use of the right sounding instruments, players, room, mic, and mic positions.
and other Sweetwater publications!
