In Video 1 we talked all about the controls of an EQ.

Video 2 in my EQ series covers a very popular EQ strategy. It’s called subtractive EQ

(Check out Video 3 in my EQ series: Additive EQ)

What it does is cut or subtract the unwanted frequencies that are covering up the true essence of what the track can sound like.

It’s like a dirty film on top of your audio. You need to remove that film to reveal the HD quality of sound. That’s the way I like to look at it.

It also frees up some headroom which is awesome.

Your goal here is to sweep around and find some nasty sounding frequencies, then cut them out. Subtract them from the equation, Say bye bye. Say adios amigo……Ok I’ll stop.

Check out the video below to see and hear this in action, and with more explanation.
