Hello this is Brandon with another Mix Minute, and today we’re going to discuss the workflow advantages of using console style EQ’s.
Before plugins, the majority of eq work was done on a console’s built in eq. This allowed one to avoid overthinking and focus on what sounded right.
We’ll apply this to our DAW using the Trident 80B on every channel. Even though this limits us to 4 bands, that’s more than enough for non-surgical tone shaping across your mix.
This technique demonstrated on Candlebox’s “Happy Pills”. Get a copy of these multitracks free from the cambridge educational multitrack archive. http://cambridge-mt.com/ms/mtk/#Candlebox
