Keep this as a reference

This is a super useful course that you can revisit any time when mixing, and use as a reference, in case you are not sure how to approach a certain element of the track for example. Great tips, not to mention the way Fletcher-Munson curve is explained is brilliant! Great videos - short and to the point.

Very excellent explanation of EQ.

There are some things I knew already about EQing, but Multiplier had plenty of other tips to offer. I also enjoyed his lesson on the Fletcher-Munson curve as well as EQing to Pink Noise. Definitely a top class I'll be revisiting time and again.

I didn’t realize there was so much to know with regard to EQ’ng a track. Multiplier has “multiplied” my knowledge about EQ. I can’t wait for him to do a tutorial on compression.

Great series, not an intro to EQ, it goes much further than that

Wow, this series really surprised me in a positive way. First I thought, "another EQ basics tutorial". But it is certainly not that, it assumes you know the very basics of EQ and it builds upon that.



The series is a mix of different EQ related topics which are all very useful and gave me new insights.



What I mainly like is the analytical way everything is presented. Instead of saying "method A is better than method B" he also shows with examples and spectrograms why that is actually the case. Very good!



I can really advice this series to anyone that knows the very basics of EQ! Even if you are not using Ableton, because most of the things are about EQ itself and not about Ableton in particular.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started producing music just over 5 years ago, right about when Skrillex's Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites EP dropped.

2. What training have you had?

I'm fully self-taught, and haven't had any formal training. I use online resources and learn a lot by talking to other producers about how they do things too.

3. When did you get into recording?

(same answer as number 1)

4. People you have worked with/for?

DJTechTools, iZotope, Output, CAPSUN Pro Audio, Loopmasters, Plugin Boutique, Industrial Strength, 5Pin Media

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I've had a lot of experience in the EDM space, from producing tracks and sample packs that have charted on sites like Beatport, through to DJing internationally and running a record label. And on the training side I've produced thousands of tutorials, and also tutor people one to one.
