    How to reference other mixes sonically and stylistically. We show you how to use an EQ to compare harmonic content between your mix and a reference mix.

    - Avid Pro Tools
    - FabFilter Pro-Q



    Hey what's up guys, David Glenn back again with and, and today i'm gonna tell you a little trick on how I reference other mixes to kind of get mine in the ballpark sonically, stylistically — I'll have clients — I'm always asking them, hey what's a reference, what's something your listening to that you're maybe vibing to, or what could you sonically give me an example of that will help me kind of paint the picture and build upon. So, and then if they don't give it to me I'm out there searching.

    So I'll go to iTunes, I'll buy the song and I'll actually take an EQ and suck the high end out of it, all the way down to 30 Hz, 40, 50Hz, and then slowly pull it up to kind of match and see what my low end is doing compared to theirs, and that kind of thing. This song is called Be More, it's from Justin Chase featuring Nellie Veitenheimer, and I'm gonna hit play and then we'll show you the EQ and how we're doing a level match here.


    Alright cool. So, let's jump right in, let me first explain, I've got the overall volume dropped by -10, for some reason when you do these videos the video will distort if I don't do that. If anybody has a tip on how to make that happen let me know. But, I will throw the FabFilter Pro-Q on the main out. That's gonna be over here. I've got two of them today because I had to drop that and because I used references, if I scroll to the top of my session I have a track called refs. The references are, like I said, tracks that I'll pull in from iTunes. I'll download them. I'll buy them and download them, import them into Pro Tools and then I'm going back and forth between mine and theres, and then I'm gonna watch what it's doing, but I'm gonna use my ears and hear what their low end is doing compared to mine and that kind of stuff. So a quick one today but this song is Of Monsters and Men, this one is Phillip Phillips Home, so maybe not perfect examples of what I want my mix to sound like, but sonically I think I'll be good to reference these and kind of check my low end, my lows, my low-mids, some of that kind of stuff. So let's play an example, let me go back down and pull this Pro-Q up. So here's their reference, and I'm gonna suck everything out below 50 and let's hear what Monsters And Men is doing.


    Cool, now if you're on smaller speakers, laptop, phone, that kind of thing, you're not gonna hear any of that. But I recommend throwing in some earbuds, headphones, or checking it on your studio monitors, and you'll hear that that's got some lovely stuff going on in the low end. Let's here Phillip Phillips.

    So it's pretty incredible. Those are actually really really similar. So if i'm in the ballpark of that, I probably have a good thing going here. And now I gotta bypass this one for the tutorial, but like I said this will usually be just one of these. And let's check out what mine is doing. Let's go to maybe my big tag here at the end and let's here from 60 and below.


    Cool, so this is an unfinished track. You can hear I've got maybe a little too much low end in the kick. I'd be willing to bet that actually that's gonna be from the -10 drop there that that's gonna be different, but more so showing you the technique, not necessarily what i'm doing compared to them. Let's pull it up and see what happens.

    So right away, I for myself — this song is not done yet — I can notice that maybe i've got a little more work to do in the low mids, in the lows. And I would just keep dragging this high cut all the way up until I'm at full — it's bypassed — and not necessarily taking it for biblical truth or anything here, I'm gonna go back and forth and I'm gonna reference it, but I'm using my ears and I'm gonna be doing what I can to kind of use it as a guide, not necessarily written in stone.

    But hopefully that will help somebody. I'm using that all the time while I'm mixing. I'll stop what I'm doing or I'll reference and see what I'm at ballpark, make some adjustments as needed and move on. And then before I master it or finish it I'm gonna do the same exact thing, so...

    Hopefully that helps somebody today. Hope you guys are doing great with these videos and be sure to check out that acoustic series I did. There's a four part acoustic series that we used a really great song on that, so, hope you guys are doing well we'll catch you in the next one.

    Outro - 22:15

    Writeup & Overview

    The Fabfilter ProQ-3 is one of the worlds most comprehensive, revered and used Best EQ’s in Modern Times. It’s a one stop shop which is up to almost any EQ related audio task you can throw at it.

    It lives just as at home on the Master/MIx Bus as it does on Individual Tracking Channels. You can use it to: subtly roll off some High or Low Frequencies, add some Shelving Boosts, Rebalance the Mid-Side Balance, Dynamically Tame Harsh/Unwanted Frequencies, Boost/Emphasise Harmonics, Identify Clashing Frequencies and more!


    The words that spring to mind when thinking about this Fabfilter Plugin is: ‘Microscopic Precision’. Nothing compares to the level of detail you can quickly and accurately achieve with this EQ Plugin in your everyday projects.

    The ability to quickly flick a node/band of the EQ from Mid/Side/Left/Right gives you a wealth of not only Mixing and Mastering options, but also the ability to be creative in the Sound Design process by playing with your Stereo Field and it’s Equalization.


    As is clear from the get go, the GUI is modern and sleek. It shys away from Vintage Style EQ and their graphics for a more real-time and visual based approach.

    This lends itself well to very precise jobs when you know where a trouble frequency is, and you need an EQ which will just get right where you want it and precisely notch that issue out.


    While this is not necessarily a bad point, it is something that people may not be aware of when initially picking up this equalizer.

    Due to the design and clean signal path of the plugin, it doesn’t have warmth, randomness or any kind of vibe that you would get from an analogue or analogue-modeled unit.

    I personally recommend using the FabfilterProQ Equalizer in conjunction with another Analogue/Modeled EQ to get the best of both worlds.

    In Conclusion

    The Fabfilter Pro Q 3 Equalizer really is the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of the Audio World. It can take on any job when you know how and when to use it.

    From Mixing and Mastering to Audio Repair and Rebalancing.

    From EQ Filtering and De-Essing to Creatively Widening, Narrowing or Altering your Stereo Image; it can tackle almost anything issue you throw at it and with the new and welcomed addition of the dynamic section of the EQ, it can even tame ‘harsh’ and ‘pokey’ frequencies to make it the ultimate one-stop shop EQ.

    This Pro EQ Plugin is a MUST-BUY for ANYONE Making, Mixing, Mastering or Producing Music.

    While Analogue Units & Equalizers have their Unique Peculiarities and Workflows which create their Specific Sound, this Clean and Versatile EQ will aid you in a myriad of situations.

    Head over to the Fabfilter official website and grab a trial for yourself. Once you try it in one of your productions, we promise you won’t look back!

  • How To Use FabFilter Pro-Q 2 - Overview


    Watch the rest of this tutorial here:

    This week here at Sonic Academy we welcome back Rory from Hyper Production for a look at How To Use FabFilter Pro-Q 2.

    FabFilter already set the bar high with Pro-Q back in 2010 and was a first choice EQ plugin for most producers, but not being complacent, FabFilter upped their game in version 2 offering a positive avalanche of new features which include EQ matching, Spectrum Grab, ‘tilt shelf’ bands, Natural Phase mode and automatic output gain adjustment.

    In this two part course Rory firstly checks out the user interface and each of the functions before showing us how the plugin can be used in real world examples using vocals, drums and a synth lead line.

    In terms of usability, functionality and sound, FabFilter Pro-Q 2 is hard to beat and with a reasonable price-tag it's a difficult one to resist!

  • Q-Tip- Gettin Up


    Q-Tip getting up the renaisssance album
    Sent you a message, sent you a' email
    Hasty decisions, we may still prevail
    Both needed breaks, we both needed to bail
    Walking through the corridors of my mind
    The hideaways, the nooks, and thangs with good times
    Memories certainly yes they still bind
    Still a common man and yeah that's for sure
    Still a bankroller, yeah still couture
    But man, this thing we had was much more
    Come back home, don't be out in the world
    It's a bad place, and no place for a girl
    Amongst the scavengers, I found a pretty pearl
    It's for the faint of heart who never get enough
    Gotta get tough, buckle em up, we call em duds
    And we, and we and we ahhh

    We gotta gettin up
    We gotta gettin up
    Today is nice come on we gettin up
    Said we gettin up
    Said we gettin up
    Tonight is right come on we gettin up
    Said we gettin up
    Said we gettin up

    Come over here baby, don't look so grumpy
    This kind of lifestyle could be so comfy
    We can start a clan just like the Kennedy's
    You and I again, certainly we can expand
    Feelings that should never end
    You respect me like a friend
    But love me like your man
    No other could contend
    Or we could be like Doves exposed to history
    Like staying with each other with truth and chivalry
    The things we go through, they shape our identity
    Yes pretty let's do this all night
    Consummate this thing and make it alright
    And when we cuddle up and promise that alright

    We gotta gettin up
    We gotta gettin up
    Today is nice come on we gettin up
    Said we gettin up

    Tonight is right come on we gettin up

    I like to watch everybody gravitate 'twards you
    Your magnetic presence make them all come through
    The same way you got them, you got me too
    Now look at our lives, they so colorful
    A wonderful spectrum, not one tone dull
    Full of excitement and not one lull
    See we had an understanding, oh yes we did
    I'm bringing it back, I'm puttin' in my bid
    Have a couple of kids, have a couple of cribs
    We like Ruby Dee and Ossie, Martin and Coretta
    Doin' it to death, no one can do it better
    When we leave our physical our spirits still together
    So Come on now, there's a place here for your hand
    You rockin' with the number one MC man
    The number one controller of right, with the plan

    We all love how easy web conferencing can be on our laptops and we expect the same simplicity in our corporate conference rooms. However, that ease does not translate when trying to integrate soft codec applications like WebEx or Skye for Business into medium to large-sized conference rooms.

  • How to Enhance Shakers in a Mix with Clip Gain, Pro-Q 2 and Devil-Loc


    Free access to premium courses from David Glenn ➥
    Ear training for EQ ➥
    Learn compression ➥

    Some tips for bringing out shaker subdivisions in a mix.


    Hey, what's up guys? David Glenn of,, and the new

    Today, I'm going to talk to you about shakers. The little shaker doesn't get much attention in the forums or the tutorial world, but I’m going to talk about how you can enhance your shakers.

    Time after time I go to mix a shaker, and I feel like by itself, it sounds great, but it's a very dynamic and percussive instrument, and the initial “ch” of the shaker can get a little bit overpowering when you're mixing it in. The subdivided rhythm in between each hit can get a little bit lost as well, so I’m going to show you how I've handled that in a recent mix I've done.

    The song is called Historia De Amor. It's a duet by my buddy Abner Supeda. His band is called Ministerio, Sons of God.

    Let's dive right in. So this is the shaker loop as it was sent to me right here.


    So you can hear what I'm talking about. [mimics shaker] You can hear that nice and clean, but the [mimics quiet shaker parts] the subdivided 16th or 8th notes you can't really hear that well.

    I didn't mind that at the verse section. Let's play it in the track. I didn't mind that here, but I did not like the EQ. It was a little bit bright for my taste in the verse. Here's without my EQ.


    [mimics shaker] You can almost feel a little bit of the subdivided rhythm going on, but not really. Not too much. And that's okay for that part. I thought it was kind of cool, so what I did was I broke this track up. I duplicated it twice, and you'll see this track right here and this track here are merely a duplicate of that.

    What I did was I went in here and I used clip gain first. You can see the stuff in the middle – let me solo this track and turn off my processing for now.

    Now listen to this loop.


    Against what it was here.

    [shaker plays]

    Cool. So you can clearly hear that the stuff in between each quarter note is up in volume by using clip gain. Real quickly, all I did for that is I would go in, I would tab to transient and break it up and bring up the volume so I could even select here through there, then the keyboard shortcut for clip gain is hold Control+Shift+Up on Mac, and you can see the clip gain goes up. You could also break it and use the little slider here. There are all kinds of ways to do that.

    But I'm going in and making it to where all this stuff in here is louder so that I get more of a consistent tone just from using clip gain.

    Now, what I did after that is I went in and I pulled open the good ol' SoundToys Devil-Loc, and I tried to get a more consistent volume out of it from just this guy.

    Let's hear just this track for now. This is before and after Devil-Loc

    [shaker, disabling and enabling Devil-Loc]

    So, now you can really hear those in betweens. Everything is a little bit more of a consistent volume, but by doing that, I lost some of the quarter note. I lost some of the transient and some of the attack from it.

    This right here is just an EQ to cut out some of this and make it fit in a little bit better, with just a little bit of that sheen for it.


    Cool. Then I duplicated it again and I got this guy, and what I did with this one is I still have the clip gain going on, but take a look at what I also have from this one.


    I've got my quarter note back, right? This is pretty much the same thing, just EQ'd for that top, and then I just wanted a little more of that articulation so that it was kind of a meet-in-the-middle situation with these two.

    Now I'm going to show you, we went from this right here, and then you'll hear it play on and you'll hear the new shaker.

    [shaker playing]

    Cool. Same shaker, just duplicated and treated. I hope that helps you. A lot of times, those in betweens can get a little bit lost in the track. Hopefully that gives you a couple ideas. Instead of using compression, we used this Devil-Loc. We blended a little of the transient back in. Let's hear it in the mix, and then also something that's worth noting. I like the vibe of the shaker here, but then when it got into the drums, I felt like “what's just the one quarter note shaker going to do for me?” I wanted to create a little bit more of that movement, so let's hear it before and after in the context of the mix. I'll leave you guys with that.

    In this two-minute Tuesday video tutorial, you will learn how to use Fabfilter's Pro-Q 2's EQ matching feature.

    The process is quite simple. You need to route an audio source into an instance of Pro-Q 2 via a sidechain. In Ableton Live you do this by choosing the channel in the I/O section and then Pro-Q 2 from the second menu.

    Then in Pro-Q 2, go to the Analyzer button at the bottom right of the GUI, it should say Pre+Post. Click it and you should see the EQ Match at the bottom of the flyout menu. From here you need to choose the reference option and choose side chain.

    Now, let the audio play until the EQ curve settles with a good average. Then click match. This will activate the EQ curve in the Pro-Q 2. You have the option to choose how many filter points you want. Anywhere from 1 up to 24. 24 being hyper detailed and 4 being very general.

    From there you have full access to make any changes you might want to each and every filter node.

  • How we use Q-Clone & Q-Capture step by step

    Waves Q-Clone direct link:

    We start every session with a #template
    (Watch Our Template, what is it? | Part 1: Drums, Bass & Extras:
    and Our Template, what is it? | Part 2: Guitars:
    with practically all the tools use like sends, instruments, groups, guitars, bass chains, master, print and monitor tracks with meters...

    In this template is also included Q-Clone, we just have to activate it and route it. Our purpose with this is to #analyze if necessary any process that we are exploring in the middle of the mix (Watch Pultec EQ & Vintage Ampex Tape: a very exciting combination where we show out Q-Clone workflow in action:

    Let's see how we got here...

    1- First create two mono auxiliary tracks.

    2- On the first insert Q-Capture.

    3- Then assign the same mono channel to the input and output of the first auxiliary track.

    4- Now insert Q-Clone into the second auxiliary track and activate CAPTURE. (We usually start with a 16dB scale because it has more resolution and allows you to see minimal changes).

    Now anything you insert into the Q-Capture auxiliary will be reflected in #QClone. But now, if you have any other track in your session in SOLO (we said MUTE in the video, that was a mistake), Q-Clone will stop working and will put a sign that says No Transmission. The solution is as simple as putting the auxiliary where Q-Capture is inserted in Solo Safe mode (Watch SOLO SAFE in Pro Tools (Windows and Mac): Now you can work with the assurance that Q-Clone will be available at all times for your experiments.

    Note: the background music is just that, background music. The on-screen plugins do not affect the sound at all.

    In this video we will observe how the frequency response is affected when passing the signal by devices that have not been designed specifically for this. Our purpose is to satisfy the curiosity more than to look for scientific results but as in every #experiment there is always the possibility of finding something practical... or not...

    SPIKE simulates a #SSL desk, today we are only going to analyze one of the 32 channels but as we saw previously (Watch Waves NLS: listen to the differences between the 96 channels: each channel can be different. MIKE simulates the EMI desk where The Dark Side of the Moon was mixed. This is the most colored emulation of the 3. NEVO simulates a #NEVE desk that apparently is almost as flat as the SSL but let's see what happens when we increase the signal. As in any analog circuit, when we bring the signal close to the analog 0, the simulations begin to show their true colors.

    Honestly we are not sure that we are looking here but apparently analog comps affect the frequencies differently, possibly this is part of what we call character. The resulting curve varies with the amount of compression.

  • Arturia 1973-Pre analized in Q-Clone


    When activating the plugin we notice a slight roll of energy at both ends as a result of the modelling of the transformers.

    If we change the transformer we will get a different response similar to another famous channel.

    Remember that in Q-Clone we can only see frequency response, with audio we will also hear how the saturation changes completely.

    If we increase Input Gain we will see how the Output is automatically compensated to unity.

    But we will also see better the differences between the two transformers.

    The EQ curves are revealing too, here we can see how the curve changes shape with the gain becoming more focused in proportion.

    Notice how the High Shelf is flatter with small boosts and more pointy at extreme values.

    This is easier to see in the mid-frequency bell band and is one of the reasons to call an EQ musical.

    The Low Shelf has a smooth Pultec-like shoulder drop which makes it the perfect warmth control.

    Although this shape is not suitable for surgical cuts, in combination with the High Pass Filter it becomes a powerful shaping tool (Why boosting below an HPF? -

    Output is an output level control, it is at the end of the circuit and unlike Input only affects the output volume.

    Finally, as a complement to our previous video (How to use calibration - we will see how changing Calibration changes the amount of signal that reaches the saturation circuit (VU), but the input and output levels remain the same.

  • Waves Abbey Road Saturator analyzed in Q-Clone


    Abbey Road Saturator:

    When we activate the plugin we see that it's already doing its thing, many times this will be more than enough to enhance the track.

    If we turn off the saturation we see the influence of the compander.

    Now we can analyze PRE and POST EQ.

    These are two identical 3-band EQs at the beginning and end of the saturation circuit.

    To remove the compander from the circuit we just have to turn off BLEND.

    The bass and treble bands are shelf filters while the mid band is a bell that includes Q control and variable frequency.

    This is the most practical type of EQ to shape the sound quickly.

    If we enter exactly opposite values in the second EQ we will see that the curves are perfectly canceled, this allows us to shape the color of the saturation using pre and post emphasis.

    If we now activate the saturator and repeatedly turn both EQs on and off, we will see how the frequency response of the saturated signal changes significantly.

    Let's turn off the #saturator and the EQs again to analyze the compander.

    The compander is a noise reduction system that boosts and compresses the signal, then expands it back.

    Skipping the final step of the noise reduction system creates a unique type of HF enhancer.

    RATIO moves the area where more harmonics will be generated:

    left - soft bass clipping
    right - soft HF clipping.

    The device created by #EMI for #AbbeyRoad also includes low and high pass filters to round off the effect (because the compander effect is parallel) and a PHASE switch.

    PHASE reverses the phase of the compander.

    Since the compander's signal sounds so different from the original, this phase inversion results in a radical change of character but not a loss of signal.
