how do you cut fequencys
 
Hi fellow reason users,

How do cut frequencys, my track is sounding muddy and you can clearly here the sounds fighting for frequency superiority !

How do you know how much to cut and at what frequency the sounds should sit in. I have tried playing around with the mixes eq but it always sounds terrible afterwards. Heh. Is there any step by step tutorial on how to do this and can any one give any hints and tips.

very difficult to tell without hearing it. Are you eq-ing each track? It's going to be harder to sort out your eqing at the end because it will be a very 'blunt instrument' by that point. Personally, I like to using M-class eqs on each individual track and focus on getting the sound I'm after and trying to clean up the sound as much as possible at that point - often this includes dumping bass frequencies cutting around 400hz, a usual muddiness area and adding sparkle at around 1 - 2.5. Then I use the master mixer eqs to make sure all the tracks are sitting well together, which is the second round of eqing for me. Then I'll tweak with very slight changes at the master stage.

It might be worth picking up the spectrum analyzer patch here: http://www.reason101.net/contributio...trum-analyzer/

Hope that helps some.

Learning frequencies can be tricky, and does take some patience.

I've seen some general theory 'guide/charts' that can kindof help the process though.

This helped me a lot.

I use the HPF (high pass filter) on every channel to help clear up space for each sound. Also eqing usually works best when cutting (boosting does have it's place though) and I find that if I boost allot with a narrow q and sweep till I find an offending freq then cut that freq out. You could also get some type of freq training software to help you out. Check out www.trainyourears.com .
