Default Re: Identifying Frequencies

A great way to isolate frequencies for eq'ing is to set a single band on your eq with a VERY narrow q, then boost(or cut, but boosting is more obvious sounding) that band all the way. Then sweep your frequency from left to right, and certian frequency's will stand out like a sore thumb. Turn down your monitors, or this track a notch or two before doing this, as boosting a band on the eq all the way up will add quite a bit of volume to it. Once you've identified the problem(or sweet) frequency that you want, leave it there, reset the gain of that band to 0, set your q, and start eq'ing till you achieve the sound you want.

Hope that helps.
