Udemy Audio Engineering: All About EQ TUTORiAL
learn all you need to efficiently use EQ in recording and mixing

EQ is one of the two most commonly used signal processing tools audio engineers use everyday, the other being a compressor. EQ is very powerful because allows to alter the frequency of a track, instrument, or vocal. Anyone interested in learning more about EQ should subscribe to this course. In this course I start with learning frequencies. Its incredible how some engineers can pinpoint problem frequencies. I will show my approach for learning frequencies when you hear them. After a lot of practice you will be grabbing an EQ and adjusting problem frequencies with confidence.

You will also learn the difference in parametric and semi parametric EQ's. Also I go over fixed frequency eq's. Knowing the difference between these will help you know which ones to reach for and when. EQ curves can take on many different settings with its different shapes of curves. In this course I go over the different settings listed below.

High pass filter/ Low cut
Low pass filter/ High cut
peaking
Low shelf
High shelf
Band pass
The way an EQ boost and cuts can have unique shape of its own. In this course I go over the following curve types.

Asymmetrical
Symmetrical
Proportional
Tilt
Baxandall

I also cover the different EQ types such as a dynamic EQ. I will go over how to use a Pultec style EQ. This the most awkward EQ's you will come across because of its unique design and labeling. After the learning how to use a pultec eq and hearing what it can do its no surprise why this type of EQ in heavily emulated as plugins and recreated as hardware. In course I will go over my approach for Eq'ing a vocal. Vocals can one of the hardest things to eq because every vocal is different. Prepare to spend more than an hour with me as I tech you all about EQ.

Udemy Audio Engineering Basics of Compression TUTORIAL Udemy Audio Engineering Basics of Compression TUTORIAL

Using a compressor and understanding compression is one of the hardest things for entry audio engineers to grasp. With so many different compressors and compressors types its not hard to see why people struggle with compression. Compression is critical to getting good mixes in music today, and without a proper knowledge of compressors and how to use them your mixes can easily turn thin and lifeless. Compressors can add color to tracks, crush drums, smooth out vocals, and add weight to a bass. Compressors can add to an track, or it can take away. For example, with a compressor you add punch to a kick drum, you can take the punch away. It all depends on how you use it. And there are many, many ways to use a compressor. Using compression properly will help improve your mixes by keeping dynamics controlled.

Ready to take your compression skills to the next level? In my All About Compression course I move on to more advanced information about compression. I will go over advanced compressor controls such as mix, knee, and side chain. If you've taken my basics of compression course then consider this course the next step to continue learning about compression. In All About Compression I will cover the different types of compressors, different kinds of compressors, uses for different type of compressors, classic compressors and how to use them, and much more.

I also go over different compressor techniques and examples of use. This course will expand your capabilities with a compressor and introduce you to new ways of how to use them. I've been engineering for over 15 years now, and in that time I've gotten to use a lot of different compressors. And I've gotten to know some compressors very well. The more you use and learn about compressors the more the confident you will become in using them. And this course should help boost that confidence. Because all compressors are different it can be difficult to find the right compressor the job. I will go over my approach to choosing a compressor for a track. Anyone taking this course should have a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) with a compressor plugin so they can go over and practice these techniques. The DAW being used in this course Presonus Studio One. However the DAW you use is not important, as all DAW's will come with a compressor. By sharing some of my knowledge of 15 plus years in audio this course will teach you the following:

Different compressor types
compression techniques
Multi band compression
De-essing and how to set a de-esser
choosing the right compressor
parallel compression
serial compression
side chain compression
using automation with compression
how to set a compressor for general compression
how to set a compressor for mix bus compression
classic comperssors and how to use them
What are the requirements?

knowledge of the basic compressor controls and use will be needed for this course
What am I going to get from this course?

Over 22 lectures and 2.5 hours of content!

Udemy Audio Engineering Adjectives of Audio TUTORiAL Udemy Audio Engineering Adjectives of Audio TUTORiAL

This course will teach you how to understand some of the popular adjectives used to describe audio.

This course consists of the explanations of popular adjectives used to describe audio.

Dark - this means the signal sounds vintage, to understand what vintage sounds like listen to some old recording and study the tone. Dark sounding also falls under colored.

Bright - this means the signal has more high frequencies. If you want to make something sound brighter add some high frequency to it. Bright being the opposite of dark can be great on some vocals.

Clean - clean means your signal is pure and accurate. This is a modern sound, the opposite of vintage. For example a clean mic pre means it doesn't change (or color) your sound. So what you put in is what you get back. Solid-state or transformerless is generally clean.
Colored - this is the opposite of clean. Coloring your sounds means changing the tone from the original signal. Colored can be associated with vintage and sometimes dark. Different gear has different colors. If you listen closely you can hear differences between different pieces of gear.
Muddy - this the second hardest term to explain, but here we go. Mud is a build of low mid frequencies (200-500hz) that makes the signal sound cluttered. Mud is not a positive thing and should never be taken as a compliment. It took me a long time to distinguish what mud was.
Sterile - sterile means ultra clean. This is good for say orchestra where you usually want as little color as possible. Sterile can also come off sometimes as "too clean", meaning its so clean it's boring. These type of pres are crystal clear though.
Transparent - this another word for clean and it's mostly associated with compressors and eq's. A transparent piece of gear means its not going to impart any color on the original signal during its processing. If you're happy with the tone of your signal but need to further process it then you need to reach for something thats transparent.

Smooth - this to me differs in compressors, eq's, and mics. For compressors smooth means its compressing but you can't really hear the compression, even at high gain reduction. Any compressor, except maybe aggressive ones (more on that next) can be made smooth with the right settings.
Aggressive - in a mic pre this means in your face, very forward sounding. The API 312 and 512 have been described as an aggressive mic pre. In a compressor this means it really clamps down on a signal even with gentle settings. FET compressors are known for being aggressive and being capable of a very fast attack time.
Warm - this is the one you all have been waiting for. Warmth is the most used word when describing the sound of a piece of gear. Its the hardest one to describe because people who have no idea of what warmth is use the term freely. So what warmth is to you and how you perceive it will be different from others because the term is used so loosely. Where bright deals with high frequencies, warmth deals with the low to low mid frequencies. Tubes are associated with warmth because they add harmonic distortion (the good kind of distortion) to the those frequencies. This is what people are referring to when they say tube warmth.
