I really appreciated your twitch stream on the hyper EQ. I love the sound you achieved and am more anxious to understand what I am doing than ever. I do feel like i am getting some clarification just watching you work, so thank you for that. The two questions blocks i have are the following:
At the beginning you did a pre-mix eq to just clean up the raw vocals. You set some predefined points at 5hz, 165hz, 326hz, and 10k. I understand that the 50hz was your hp rolloff and the 10k was your air band. What exactly were you looking for with the middle three frequencies. Correct me if I'm wrong but you set the smoothing to 0% in order to find the chest and throat sound. Are the noise profiles that you used for this step always the same or was that just something you heard the vocal needed?
You seem to intuitively know which guides to follow for various frequency ranges. If i use a specific guide, how much of the frequency spectrum am i trying to match up with it? For instance, you use guide x for 700hz-900hz and then you switch to a different guide for 1-3k. whats the principle here?
Sorry if this is a lot but i really loved the sounds you were able to achieve and I appreciate the effort on your part to make it more understandable. Thanks.
