Default Re: Identifying Frequencies

Quote:
Hi,
I was just wondering if anyone knew of a really good source of material that would help in identifying frequencies for use during the EQ process.....websites.....charts....reading material....DVDs....etc
I'm currently enrolled in an online Mixing & Mastering In Pro Tools course offered thru Berklee and am feeling kind of lost on this very important aspect of things....other than just doing a lot of guess work!!!!

Thanks,
Scott
Just wondering how you'd use the information.

Firstly, instruments play a range of notes, scales, octaves, so nothing will be tied to one frequency (remember that every octave is doubling/halving the frequency)

Secondly, unless you're listening to pure sine tones, every sound is a fundamental tone with numerous higher frequencies (harmonics) combined.
