EQ, equalisation, is a powerful concept that you can use before you even started composing orchestral music (or music in general). Before you even wrote any note in your Digital Audio Working station. Use EQ as a clean up tool for every instrument in your composition and get rid of unwanted frequencies. This will boost your work progress and workflow!

What is EQ?
After diving into the concepts of dynamics, balancing and panning, this week I want to spend some time on EQ-ing.
What is equalisation? An EQ is simply a smart volume knob. Nothing more, nothing less. Use it to turn up or down the frequencies of a specific instrument.
In this particular video, which is not about mixing (!), I’ll show you how you can use this smart volume knob in your advantage. To clean up unwanted low frequencies which are almost always present in orchestral libraries. And to make confidently additional cuts if necessary.
