    Hi again,

    I have a rimshot percussion sound that takes up a pretty broad range of frequencies. It goes from like 200 to 2000 hz and it sounds pretty good.

    I want to eq it but if i take any of the spikes out it just doesnt sound as bright.

    Should i just bring down all freqs by a couple dB and call it a day?


    Thanks in advance kama.

    Hi,

    I have a spectrum analyzer, i know where the peaks are, it's just that they are everywhere.

    cant really answer that question without...
    a) hearing the sound...
    b) knowing the context your using it in...
    c) Knowing what you want it to sound like....
