Tutorial on EQ by Alex Case

AES Tutorial

The latest in our series of online tutorials is now available at

Entitled ‘What’s Your EQ IQ?’, this tutorial was presented by Alex Case last year at the 130th AES Convention in London. It presents the basic techniques behind the ever important use of equalization in studio mixing.

Easy enough, at first. EQ becomes more intuitive when you have a deep understanding of the parameters, types, and technologies used, plus deep knowledge of the spectral properties and signatures of the most common pop and rock instruments. Alex Case shares his approach for applying EQ and strategies for its use: fixing frequency problems, fitting the spectral pieces together, enhancing flattering features, and more.

These tutorials are only available for viewing online and are not currently available to download for offline viewing.
