Equalization by Ken Friesen

“Always listen to the sound you’re recording at the source before equalization, because live music is best. (e.g. listen to a guitar sound from the amp before changing its sound in the control room through equalization).”

“When doing any kind of equalizing, always EQ with the instruments in the centre pan position, because of possible discrepancies in the left and right side of the monitors. This includes stereo instruments (e.g. stereo guitar, stereo piano).”

Ken Friesen – producer/engineer (Anne Murray).
