EZ. Does anyone know of a place where I can get a decent parametric EQ (preferably free)? I'm producing a hip-hop beat with some samples from Fela Kuti and the music in the background is a bit loud. Since the samples come from different parts of the track, they clash pretty hard. I've tried the noise gate, but that doesn't work and it just seems to wash out my original sample. If the parametric EQ doesn't work, then is there an easier way to get the background band to quiet down?
