Breaking down the basics of Ableton Live 10’s EQ devices
Three EQ effects are built-in with Live – but which one should you use, and why?
EQ, short for equalisation, is the art of adjusting the balance of frequency content within a sound, often categorised into bass, mids and highs. Ableton Live offers three different EQ devices for different use cases with Channel EQ, EQ Eight and EQ Three. In our Ableton Live Tutorial video, Liam O’Mullane walks us through the basics of EQ as a whole, and how each of Live 10’s EQ devices can enhance your sound in its own way.
