Essential Equalization Techniques for Pro Tools

This is a basic but complete course to introduce beginners and improvers to equalization techniques in Pro Tools. The course covers all commonly-used professional techniques and the student will achieve a full knowledge comparable with the requirements of a professional music producer or sound engineer.

Students who are already advanced in their knowledge and skills will find the course useful to fill in any gaps they might have in their experience.

Course components are relevant to other digital audio workstation EQs, to third-party EQ plug-ins, and to hardware equalizers as many of the concepts, techniques and operational methods are similar or the same.
