PUREMIX Study of EQ Controls TUTORiAL
Equalizers are the most commonly used and misunderstood tool in an engineer’s toolkit. 

The ability to bend, shape and carve frequencies at-will is an audio superpower not to be taken lightly. It’s important that sound engineers understand what is going on behind the knobs and fully understand the impact of what every EQ parameter can have on a sound.

In this tutorial, Grammy winner Fab Dupont explains everything you need to know about:

Fully Parametric and Semi-Parametric EQ
High and Low Shelves
Bell curves and Q settings
High Pass and Low Pass filters (aka Low Cut and High Cut filters)
Frequency graphs
Analog vs Digital EQs
Personal tastes (sonically) and how to find the right tools to match
The subtle differences between the hundred of different EQs available

The fundamentals of sound in time, learn how to teach yourself to read, write basic rhythms and the skill to play them

This course is about understanding the very basis of music: sound. More precisely of sound in time. No matter what kind of instrument or musical endeavor you're interested, the most fundamental concepts are always the basics of sound in time, the rhythm.

We take an approach to study the basics of music in a way everyone can learn with no past musical experience whatsoever.

It is directed toward people with no means to find a good teacher, or who wants to learn by himself.

We include tutorials, exercises, and dictations as our main way to understand and practice the concepts.

Our approach is 100% practical, you should be making some rhythms from the very beginning, and have some solid skills by the end of the course.

Is very important to take a course like this before trying to learn any instrument, or try to compose, because, you need a solid foundation that sometimes teachers don't have the time to share.

learn all you need to efficiently use EQ in recording and mixing

EQ is one of the two most commonly used signal processing tools audio engineers use everyday, the other being a compressor. EQ is very powerful because allows to alter the frequency of a track, instrument, or vocal. Anyone interested in learning more about EQ should subscribe to this course. In this course I start with learning frequencies. Its incredible how some engineers can pinpoint problem frequencies. I will show my approach for learning frequencies when you hear them. After a lot of practice you will be grabbing an EQ and adjusting problem frequencies with confidence.

You will also learn the difference in parametric and semi parametric EQ's. Also I go over fixed frequency eq's. Knowing the difference between these will help you know which ones to reach for and when. EQ curves can take on many different settings with its different shapes of curves. In this course I go over the different settings listed below.

High pass filter/ Low cut
Low pass filter/ High cut
Low shelf
High shelf
Band pass
The way an EQ boost and cuts can have unique shape of its own. In this course I go over the following curve types.


I also cover the different EQ types such as a dynamic EQ. I will go over how to use a Pultec style EQ. This the most awkward EQ's you will come across because of its unique design and labeling. After the learning how to use a pultec eq and hearing what it can do its no surprise why this type of EQ in heavily emulated as plugins and recreated as hardware. In course I will go over my approach for Eq'ing a vocal. Vocals can one of the hardest things to eq because every vocal is different. Prepare to spend more than an hour with me as I tech you all about EQ.
