EQ: The Smart Volume Knob

Post by FreakyBlue » Thu Oct 18, 2018 5:32 pm

The best way to think about EQ is that it is a smart volume knob.
 An EQ simply increases or decreases volume of specific frequencies.

3 main controls on an EQ:

  1. Frequency - Which frequency are you going to alter?
  2. Gain - By how much are you going to increase or decrease that frequency?
  3. Bandwidth/Q - How much are you going to affect the frequencies either side of the frequency you are altering?
