Your Faders Are Like An EQ

To start things off this time I have a huge foundational tip for you: treat your volume faders as your first line of EQ. Sometimes the slightest volume fader tweak between channels can make all the difference in getting the tonal balance you want out of all your tracks. So before you reach for that vintage EQ, go back to the faders and tweak till it’s right.

Share The Wealth

If you like what you’re learning here on the blog, do me a huge favor and share it with at least one other person. We’ve got 30 more videos coming this month so why not share the wealth and help someone else get a great start to their recording and mixing in 2012! Thanks for being a part of The Recording Revolution, and here’s to a year full of great music making!
