might want to mention that this is just a rough overview of places to start, and that kids should listen more. all too many times i've heard mixes where people pretty much just followed EQ guidelines to a T and they all ended up sounding like shit.

so true. depending on how many different instruments you have, you really do need to listen. i once double tracked my bass to see how it would sound, panning it just like 2 guitars. sounded pretty sweet, but only worked because i wasnt boosting and cutting at the same frequencies that i normally would

Could be worse, you could be as lazy as I am and just pile on the presets with no tweaks.

Thanks for this guide humanity, it should help some people like me who are clueless.

This is pretty good, good job, it will help those who maybe feel presets are a little to much.. Someone elses taste and aren't to sure on Eq's
