Get familiar with FL Studio’s Fruity Parametric EQ 2 and EQUO
Learn how to use the effects to hone in on and adjust frequency content across the spectrum.
Not all instruments and elements in your track will sound perfect. Frequency content among various instruments will clash and make for an unpleasant listening experience, such as when a kick drum and bass line clash and make your track sound ‘muddy’. Fortunately, a little bit of EQ can go a long way, allowing you to hone in on specific frequencies and attenuate them where necessary and clean up your mix.
In this FL Studio tips video, Max Venus gives you a brief overview of the various EQ devices in FL Studio. You’ll learn how to navigate Fruity Parametric EQ, Parametric EQ 2 and EQUO. Max shows you the parameters and functions of each EQ, and explains when you may want to use their features.
