Equalization or EQ is one of the most fundamental types of processing you will do as a music producer. It's at the heart of shaping and polishing any sound or mix. And Logic has some excellent bundled EQ plugins - the most accessible of which is its powerful Channel EQ module. In this short video from the course Logic Pro X 201: The EQs and Filters, Joe Albano explores the Channel EQ and shows you exactly how it works.
Joe begins by explaining the fundamentals of how EQ works, and how altering the gain of specific frequencies affects the overall tonal balance of any audio you apply it to. He then walks you through the different controls - such as Q, or width, levels, frequencies and more, using practical examples to demonstrate how EQ can be used to shape and sculpt a sound. He also reveals some of the key commands, hidden features and shortcuts that can help you work faster and more efficiently when using the Channel EQ in Logic.
