I recorded acoustic guitars for a song that had just guitars and vocals. A very nice simple melody. In stereo, AB spaced pair. (one at the bridge, anled a little down, the other at bout the 10th fret) Last night while mixing I got very surgical with the EQ. EQing L and R channels seperately. Cutting all frequencies that I dint like (boomy, metallic sounds etc.) Using quite a few narrow q bands. boosting the highs to get sparkle and so on. (preceded by a little compression) I was wanting to know, while this is sounding nice. should one take a more general approach to the eq. I know it's ok to do anything as long as it sounds good. but I was curious to know what methods do you ppl usually apply. thanks, sidhu p.s. I have been trying to mail Ben of http://www.modernmastering.com , all mails i sent him have been returned.
