EQ Types and Terms

That ever mysterious staple to mixing, EQ. Chris and Jody discuss the most common types of EQ types and what they’re generally used for when creating sounds, recording, and more. Should you be cutting? Should you be boosting? Or should there be some sort of combo between cuts and boosts? What is corrective EQ? Find all this out. It’s also not unlikely that there will be some nonsense discussed.

We do give a little tribute to Eddie Van Halen in this episode as well.
