hi everyone, i'm producing music (mixing & mastering) at home with plug-ins for a couple of years now and have achieved some good skills concerning the usage of eq's and dynamics etc., at least i think so ;-) ... but there is still one thing that i don't know how to achieve without using many eq's in a row. what i mean is, when i listen to a professional audio cd and i sweep with a narrow q-factor through the spectrum everything is perfectly balanced, there are no audible annoying peaks in the frequency range. when i do the same thing with my own recordings i always notice, that there are many many frequencies that are annoying and these peaks also vary in volume and i would need 20 eq's in a row with a narrow bandwidth, to filter all those annoying frequencies. so, the question is, do the pro's use so many eq's to balance the spectrum, or is there another tool for mixing/mastering, that is used to get rid of the annoying narrow frequency peaks? this is still an open mystery for me.
