THE ‘BOOST AND CUT’ TRICK
Another phenomenon well known with this classic type of design is the ability to
apply both boost and cut to a specific frequency at the same time. The resulting
effect is hardly the type of simple cancellation one might expect. The cue shape
of the boost and cut functions vary slightly, as do their gain potential; so even
matching boost and cut levels by ear can produce a result quite different from
when boost and cut are returned to zero. Some have described this effect as
a gentle scooping of the area around the target frequency, with an emphasis
added closer to the center frequency itself. Others describe it as a phase shift
type of effect for the target frequency. The result, by any name, is hardly subtle;
and can be used to create emphasis or texture to a specified frequency.

USING THE EQP-WA IN BYPASS MODE
When in bypass mode, the audio signal is still routed through the Cinemag
input transformer, dual vacuum tube stage line amplifier, and Cinemag output
transformer; and the EQP-WA will output at approximately unity gain relative
to the input level (or within close margin, due to small variations in output
gain from individual vacuum tubes). This design allows the user to take
advantage of an old ‘engineering trick’ known to many successful producers
and recordists, whereby one uses a piece of gear with large transformers and
high voltage tube stages as a ‘pass-through’ device or ‘tube buffer’ following
a mic preamp, console send, or other piece of hardware, adding subtle sheen,
richness, thickness, and harmonic content to an audio signal. This technique
can also be used on program material (complete mixes or subgroups).

CHAPTER 4:
WAXING PHILOSOPHICAL
WHEN TO EQ?
This is a question that deserves thought. In some cases, EQ can be intuitive.
One of the simplest examples of corrective EQ would be in treating the
human voice; adding top end to a vocal that needs articulation, or adding
bottom end to a vocal that appears thin. In all cases, one should listen
thoughtfully and let the material tell you what it needs. Ultimately, one
should EQ when a signal requires help to fit naturally and compliment a mix.
ENGLISH
CHAPTER 2:
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
As a general rule, one should do most EQ after applying compression;
though there are exceptions, such as taming a problem frequency in
advance of a compressor to allow the compressor to respond more
naturally. In this situation, one might consider subtractive EQ prior to
compression, and additive EQ post-compression. The most notable
exception to this rule is in stereo mastering, where EQ should precede
final compression and limiting, to prevent any chance of peak overages.
TIPS ON USING YOUR EQP-WA
The EQP-WA is a program equalizer by design, which means, though quite
capable on individual instruments, it especially shines on complex, full
bandwidth material; i.e. complete mixes or instrument groups. It is especially
good with providing a final tone balance and adjusting the relationship of the
midrange to the low and high frequency bands in finished material. As with
all equalization, listen for what the source material calls for, and reference
back to the original (unaltered) source often to maintain perspective.

Most musicians and artists would say they want their voice or instrument
to sound as natural as possible; however, there are many acoustic factors
which can affect one’s perception of how an event sounds. What most
artists and engineers desire is for an instrument to sound natural or, in
an idealized way, closer to the artist’s intention. Most artists expect their
recorded material to perform well in the context of a mix without covering
other performers or getting covered up. Using an outboard equalizer should
typically be viewed as much of a way to make corrective changes as it is to
make creative changes. The reason for this is that microphone placement,
room acoustics, the settings of the instrument or amp, and a whole host
of other variables are always applying their own unique type of EQ to a
signal, some of which may be outside of your control and undesirable.

TECHNICAL SPECS
In the beginning...
Most early recording consoles had very primitive equalization capabilities,
often consisting of only two knobs. These consisted of either a simple ‘tone
control’ type shelving equalizer, or a ‘low’ and ‘hi’ control knob with a fixed
frequency center. One of the most significant advancements in early studio
recording came with the advent of dedicated equalizers. The invention of
dedicated equalizers inspired desk manufacturers to start putting more
comprehensive equalization into their desks. This addition, more than any
other, brought about what we would consider the modern recording desk.
What followed next was the innovation that brought the use of EQ into the
mainstream, known as active equalization. ‘Active equalization’ allowed an EQ
to be patched into a mixing desk for the first time without the fear of ‘insertion
loss’, added noise, or loss of fidelity. Finally, EQ could be performed risk-free.
Most analog equalizers manufactured today use some form of solid state
electronics to apply their boosts or makeup gain. The earliest incarnations of
these equalizers, however, used vacuum tubes, along with large input and output
transformers, as required by most high voltage tube circuits. This type of design
imparts a ‘sweet’ character that many modern designs fail to reproduce. Though
many modern EQ’s have a generous amount of features, few offer the warmth
and richness, or the natural and forgiving qualities of the classic designs.
A BIT OF HISTORY
WAXING PHILOSOPHICAL
HOOKUP DIAGRAMS
RECALL SHEETS
Many of the early outboard equalizers were passive devices, operating
in a purely subtractive manner, requiring a preamplifi er (either in the form
of outboard gear, or routed back into an unoccupied channel of the console).
Not only did the equalizer lose signal level by performing equalization; but
often caused ‘loading loss’ merely by being patched in, resulting in added
noise, hum or buzz, and loss of tone or high frequencies. By the time an
equalized signal was preamplified again and passed through additional
console circuitry, the signal to noise ratio was often worse off . This
made EQ difficult to use without negatively affecting the signal quality.
7
In the early days of recording, distance mic recording was more common
than close-mic technique. Large rooms tend to ‘even out’ a soundstage,
eliminating the need for much of the corrective EQ used in modern
production. As close mic recording became the accepted norm for superior
track isolation, the need for equalization became much more apparent to
recording engineers. Early studios began to utilize what many termed the
‘Tamla/Motown’ technique (named after the famous record label and studio),
whereby an instrument or voice is ‘manipulated’ to some degree via
equalization in order to sit well within the context of a mix. Today, this is a
nearly inseparable part of the art and science of modern music production.
