Now just so you know where I stand, I really still don't understand mixing completely. I've done an SAE course and all but I'm still learning.
What I noticed from doing mixes and mastering for a project I'm on that eq'ing in mixing and mastering generally follow different trends specifically with the bandwidth settings.. I usually find myself, boosting with a wide Q (Usually for complex sounds like string sections, pads and such because narrow bandwidth Q GENERALLY doesn't sound very natural, mayaswell just filter right?)
and cutting with a small one and if I'm getting surgical obviously I'd cut and boost with a narrow Q... For mastering I noticed it's a little bit different.. I generally avoid boosting especially with a narrow Q when working in the high end mostly... Anyone have the same thoughts and can any expand on this somehow? I know I haven't narrowed it to a question but I'm just interested in hearing about it.
