Audiotent Tip 396. Narrow Q When Cutting.

When removing unwanted resonances using an equalizer, it’s often a good practice to use a narrow Q value.

This way the cut is very precise and has less impact on the overall tone of the source signal.

However, when working on lower frequencies, sharp narrow Q can introduce drastic phase shifts.

Make sure your ears are the final judge to decide the Q value.
