Welcome to this EQ tutorial were I will be going over one of the most powerful tools in any DAW! This tutorial is all about the parametric EQ, how to use it and all its features.
In this tutorial, I’ll be showing you typically where frequencies for common Trance sounds sit in the frequency spectrum, and how to effectively use the EQ to help the sounds sit better in the mix. I will be showing you how to EQ sounds such as a Kick, Bass, Sub, Pad, Pluck & Percussion loop.
We will also be looking at sounds that sit in the same frequency range, and best practices to make them fit together nicely through the use of Mid-Side EQ and other EQ techniques.
I will be going into great detail about all the different types of EQ bands, Slopes, Q’s and when certain bands would be used in different scenarios.
I’ll also be showing you how to add certain characteristics to sounds through the use of the AM Studios – Frequency Chart (Included With Purchase)
I will also be letting you know my most used technique to allow space for your low-end frequencies such as your kick drum punch through!

Yes, all the technique you will learn in these videos can be implemented into your own DAW using your own EQ.
***Please note – Logics EQ or Sylenth are not required to learn from this tutorial. All principles can be used with any parametric EQ or sounds/synths you have.

Bought this over Xmas to start my learning path and its really helped me understand EQ, i can tell the difference when I am using EQ to get the sound I want since I have been using this video, highly recommend and will be buying more in the future to help me get to the standard I want with my tracks.
Even though i thought i had a good grasp on EQ, i suddenly realised that on certain instruments i was losing the natural sound on some synths, i was eq'ing to much on certain sounds. Again a great insight into the art of sound by Allan, it always makes sense after watching one of his tutorials!!
This tutorial really does go the extra mile, understanding and being able to visualize where sound sits on the frequency spectrum and how to make space for certain sounds in the mix is massive for the final sound quality of the track, my mixes already sound less hectic and muddy. It has made a huge difference to my very basic understanding and application of sound design. Really worth every penny and as with the others I have purchased and really beneficial to personal growth in the field of making music.
