Academy Dashboard Forum Production Mixing Understanding EQ and applications Reply To: Understanding EQ and applications

    Warrens tip about doing less with more plugins has helped me. It's a little bothersome at first, or at least, it might feel wrong to eq, comp, eq, comp, eq, etc... but in the end, I believe it does sound less processed. Which is ironic considering you're placing more processors in line.

    Another thing that can ease the need for compression and EQ is automation.

    And getting a little more advanced is using something like Waves C6, where you're combining EQ and Compression, as needed. But I would wait till you feel like you have somewhat of a grip on EQ and Compression before you dive into dynamic EQ plugins.
