Continuing on with our “Fundamental Series”, we will take an in depth look at the fundamental frequencies of pianos. Understanding these fundamental frequencies can be a key factor in bettering your engineer skills.

Pianos are a very common instrument found in several genres of music including Pop, R&B, Hip Hop, Trap, EDM, Country & so on. This instrument can bring elegance, warmth, & even sparkle & energy to your music, but did you know there are certain frequencies that create problems within your mix when it comes to pianos?

In this video, we discuss a detailed analysis of the fundamental frequencies of a piano. We talk about & demonstrate what specific boosted frequencies will help a piano become more presence in the mix without clashing with the rest of the music. We also take a look at  different frequencies that should be cut to avoid muddiness & overcrowding throughout your mix.

As with any aspect of music, the type of piano & song vary with frequencies; however, these key elements will point you in the right direction of a beautiful sounding piano. Your listeners & fans will appreciate the tastefulness these techniques bring to your piano without overcrowding the other instruments.

Follow along as professional engineer Eric “Realistic” Michael gives you a step-by-step guide on choosing the right frequencies to boost & cut for a piano.
