Do you EQ samples?

    I have a question. If there is a song that is completely made out of AKAI sample instruments (kick, snare, hat, cymbals, bass), akai loops and vocals then how to EQ this? What I mean is: aren't those samples already been eqd? Should we treat them as real instruments?

    Simple answer from my side: Do whatever the mix needs. If the instruments sound great in the song as they are why use EQ? But if the kick e.g. interferes with the bass or the snare wrestles with the vocals you certainly want to do something about it, right?

    In my world the song dictates the processing, not the individual sounds or instruments.

    You are absolutely right. Thanks for the answer.
