Get go­ing with dy­namic EQ

Future Music - - PRODUCER’S GUIDE TO -

>The EQ can put any band into Dy­namic mode. This turns the EQ band into its own com­pres­sor or ex­pander with a Thresh­old con­trol. There are two modes: Up and Down. Up makes the fil­ter (or gain) move up­wards when the Thresh­old is breached, while Down mode re­duces gain when the Thresh­old is ex­ceeded. Flip­ping be­tween Down and Up, and mov­ing the band it­self above or be­low the 0dB axis can lead to stan­dard or up­ward com­pres­sion, ex­pan­sion, and down­ward ex­pan­sion. It’s hard to grasp, but ev­ery in­stance is trig­gered by the Thresh­old be­ing ex­ceeded, wher­ever the fil­ter starts and moves.
