    Nice tutorial geez.. very helpful, as a tune im working on at the moment has a pad sound that had really pierces my ears when i play higher frequency notes.. im not quite sure what the definition of resonance/resonating is... but I assume this is what im hearing? - so surgical eq'ing seems the way forward! Cheers

    Hey Mr Fletch, cheers for the video - very very handy to have something like this to refer to. Gonna +sub once I get home.

    I'd be very keen on a tutorial about kick and snare compression, in case you want ideas for your next video.

    fletch m8, i ran into a prob recently when doing this notch eq'in that i found myself finding a lot of resonate spikes across the sweep but by time i had sorted them all out, my bass sounded poo poo compared to the original one b4 the notch eq'in...... Is there such a thing as too much or a case of compromise?

    i was also wondering about this, was notching it with parametric eq2 in FL.

    for me it seemed like i need to find a balance between notch-eqing and keeping the harmonics in the sound...?
