Mixing and Mastering Tip #009
People talk a lot about subtractive EQ (Getting rid of frequencies on one instrument so that the frequencies on another can cut through.) But sweetening is just as important, subtractive EQ alone will produce a very clean mix, but they can be called dry, boring etc.. This can be two ways, the first is increasing one section of the spectrum a lot, and the other is increasing a bunch of points across the spectrum, you can also do both if you find it necessary. Always use your ears to make these decisions, these are just guidelines and ideas to get you moving.
