Something I've noticed when watching yt tutorials is that pro producers will explain exactly what they've done, but not why they've done it or how they know what to do. For example EQ: some people who have been producing ages can just know where to boost and cut so it sounds epic and they can get exactly the effect they want. Whenever I bring up an EQ, put on a high Q and sweep to try and find good/ bad frequencies to cut or boost, all I can hear are frequencies: I can't tell if they're good or bad or not, just high or low. Tbh, I can barely hear EQ anyway, it's so subtle that I can't hear much difference. The same with layering: I can tell my layered drums aren't as good as the ones I'm referencing against, but I don't know why: they'll just somehow sound tighter. Is there anything I can do except keep on blindly doing stuff and kind of hoping it'll all come together?
