Sounds pretty good to me. I’m not hearing a night and day difference described by the video between your two mixes. You definitely improved the other mix. I do like the EQuivocate better, sounds a little smoother to me, less digital. I’ll have to download it myself. Cool concept. What’s your opinion?
To me, it did alter your by ear mix a little, sounds like the voice has a touch more weight to it, but it’s close. On the second mix, it was obvious that the eq suffered from a bad starting point, since it paled in comparison to both your by ear mix and the corrected mix.
In your case, I don’t think it would be all that helpful, since you already know how to get what you are looking for, and know how to dial that in. For me, I would use a song like Deacon Blues and see what it did to the mix, since the decisions would be very obvious on something I was working on.
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.
I recorded him warming up one time without his knowledge and decided to make it sound like an arena recording for fun. I sent it to him much later after he’d forgotten about it and he was inspired by himself. This should blow minds.
