Semi parametric eq tips


Recommended Posts

Hi there, 


When using an EQ I would recommend taking out the frequencies you don't want. For your example you say the highs are harsh; raise the high shelf gain a bit to hear them a bit louder, sweep through the frequencies, find the one thats giving you trouble, then back the gain off getting it out of the mix - to your taste. 


Try this as a starting point. Everyones ears are different, but this has always been a major rule of thumb when using EQ with tone writing on our end.

Thanks I've been working along those lines and I'm spotting the bad frequencies quicker now

Do you know what frequencies a regular guitar cab rolls off at ?

I guess they're all very different now that I think about it but when I play alone I actually like the sound of the low end of my tones but when I get together with the band I don't cut through in the mix so I have to cut some of the lower frequencies so I was curious where the low and high frequencies tend to get filtered out by a regular cab
