Cool - I thought it sounded better too. It looks like I was a bit too zealous in getting rid of low mid mud and boxiness in my original mix. Putting back some low mids gave it a less clinical sound.
I really like how easy it was to get results, and the results sounded pretty good too me. I’m not really a particular connoisseur of EQs, but this seems to be very smooth and natural sounding, even with pretty huge boosts.
I didn’t really explore it either - I didn’t watch any videos, and I only cracked the manual to work out how to do the EQ match thing. It does it via side-chaining btw (although the video probably shows that!), which was cool.
Cool, thanks Bryan!
Hey Bob - yeah, I started off using the other person’s mix of the song to see how it would respond to the Match EQ, but that was pretty obvious. Even though it improved the mix greatly, it didn’t fix some fundamental level issues, and source track eq problems. Then I thought “I wonder how it would change my mix?” The changes are more subtle, but still quite profound IMO… So I still think it is a very useful tool in both situations.
One thing I noticed was that this thing is GREEDY! It actually interrupts playback if I adjust it in real time, even with the highest latency setting on my fairly monster computer. Not sure if there are some settings I can tweak on it to stop that happening, but I’ll have to look into that later.
Glad you guys found this of interest.
