Subtractive EQ Using Instrument Frequency Charts

Written by Eric David Smith on June 5th 2016

In this video I will demonstrate some of my techniques that I use to clean up a mix and allow room for other instruments. More specifically, I will be using a technique called "Subtractive EQ'ing" and basically I will be trimming the fat...or the frequencies we don't need in our mix, because these will be frequencies that the instrument isn't able to create.

Follow along with this helpful interactive instrument frequency chart below and be sure to use this technique in your next mix.
