9. Conclusion

EQ is perhaps the least noticed of all types of audio processing, but also the most important. It can transform a mediocre sound into an interesting one, correct frequency-specific problems, and go a long way towards helping disparate sound sources ‘gel’ in a mix. Whether you’re interested in purchasing a hardware equaliser or software plug-in, or just want to find out more about the EQ on your mixer, we hope that you have found this guide useful, and remember EQ is not just for boosting frequencies – it is often at its most effective when cutting – happy tweaking!
