One all your tracks have been filtered and compressed/expanded, the next step you should consider is EQ the timbre.
EQ has many purposes:
- To filter out any unwanted frequencies
- To shape the timbre of the sound
- To reduce any interfering frequencies
- To cut out any tonalities
- To boost for added color
Regardless, you should be mindful of how much you EQ. A little can go a long way of clearing things up; doing too much can cause the sound to drastically change. Just be judicious and constantly listening to what you do to make sure your edits meet your artistic direction.

Today we are going to be talking about a quick guide in
several installations on how to give your recorded song a good mix. These tips can also be applied to using live
sound as well, so keep your imagination wide with possibilities.
The next step you want to take is filtering out some unneeded
frequencies. This is a MUST in recorded
audio, but it can also help when working with MIDI and the sound coming from
In situation where you have mic bleeding (meaning that you
are capturing unintended recorded audio – say from another instrument playing
or from another room) you need to make sure it is not there for when you do the
final mastering. Using a low pass filter
(LPF) that cuts high frequencies, or a high pass filter (HPF) that cuts low frequencies
will be the best bet in a plug-in to use for cleaning out your audio.
This will allow instruments that naturally sound in the extreme
low or high ends of our hearing to have less frequencies competing against
them. The filtering out of unnecessary sounds
will make the necessary ones pop-out!
