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!

A must watch Tutorial! Reinforced what I've already known about EQ. The way Allan Morrow have explained it made me understand how to apply EQ more in depth. I have became more confident in applying EQ by following his thought process. I definitely have leveled up after watching this.
Great tutorial!! After years of using EQ, reviewing the fundamentals of EQ from someone with Allan's experience has helped me get to an end result with my sound design faster, understanding where the sweet spots are for different frequencies and instruments, and how to utilize the EQ to get the best result in your creative process. Highly recommend!!
