Hi there everyone! I guess I'm the new guy around here. After lurking around here the last week or so I've gotta say I'm really digging this place. On to the tales of horror and woe! I know some basics and I usually get a pretty decent clean recording. I have a lot to learn but one of my biggest weaknesses is definately EQing instruments that share frequencies, specifically Kick drum and bass guitar. I seem to get really good thick guitar sounds, but I'm sure there are bass frequencies that are unnecessary in there too. I guess I should add I do pretty standard modern rock ala Breaking Benjamin etc. Pretty simple mixes... a few high gain guitars, bass, drums, vocals. I get a pretty big, heavy low-end, but instrument seperation could be better. I want it to be heavy and powerful, but very clean, sperated and defined. Sorry about the redundancy. I've read some in the past about frequency carving where you remove certain freqencies from instruments so the overall sound is still there but they get to occupy their own space. The problem is I really don't know where to begin with that kind of stuff. Given the type of music and style, there have gotta be some good starting points and typical frequencies to boost or cut. Sorry about the length of all this! A lot of you seem very knowledgable and any help would be great. Thanks!
