Using Dynamic EQ: Production Quick Tip of the Week #49

These quick production tips will definitely save you time in the studio and improve your workflow.

Dynamic EQs are a powerful tool that allows you to cut or boost frequencies while controlling the dynamics as well.

This style of EQ will also let you have a much more narrow Q unlike a multi-band compressor would.

Dynamic EQs are great for frequency buildups.

Some examples of situations you may use a dynamic EQ is:
♦ Noticeable harshness on vocals or a lead.
♦ Piercing high-end sounds.
♦ Muffled or "woffy" buildup in the low end.
♦ Reverb causing muddiness in the mid-range.
♦ Clipping or distorting due to too much low end. 

THINK OF A DYNAMIC EQ AS A MULTI-BAND COMPRESSOR & AN EQ MIXED TOGETHER. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO CUT & COMPRESS SPECIFIC FREQUENCIES AT THE SAME TIME.

IF YOU'RE MASTERING A SONG THAT HAS SOME NOTICEABLE BUILDUP IN AN AREA, A DYNAMIC EQ MIGHT BE A GREAT CHOICE.

YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TAME THAT AREA, WHILE STILL MAINTAINING THE FUNDAMENTALS OF THE FREQUENCY SECTION. 

MEDIUM ATTACKS & RELEASES WORK BEST FOR DYNAMIC EQ WHILE MASTERING
