EQ Like a Pro with Local Dialect on December 18th

  |  Greg Gordon  |  


Monday, December 18th | Online Live Streamed Workshop  | 3PM Pacific or 7PM Pacific

This workshop will help you master the most important mixing tool of all - the equalizer. You will learn theory, vocabulary, and mixing techniques through lecture and live demonstration. You will learn to trim the rough edges from your sounds, how and when to boost, and even gain insight into the debate over analog vs. digital EQs, as well as advanced techniques such as linear phase or mid/side EQing.

Sam & Reed will go deeper than your ordinary YouTube tutorials and teach the why and when of EQing. Learn when in the production process to really dig into your EQs, and learn why you should use something like a linear phase EQ, not just how to use it. Sam & Reed will also provide an EQ cheat sheet and outline to take home, as well as the stems that will be used in the live demo so that you have something to practice right away. Whether you are brand new to mixing or a seasoned mixer looking for some new tricks to add to your repertoire, this EQ workshop will provide you with a deeper understanding of the theory of EQ, as well as actionable tips to improve your mixing abilities.
