I recently read this article in SOS about the Match EQ:http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/oct11/articles/logic-1011.htm
The basic idea being that you can insert the Match EQ on (for example) an acoustic
guitar track channel and then side chain it to (for example) a vox track; and then use the
apply fader to attenuate those frequencies in the guitar channel that appear in the vox
track. The aim being to make more space for the vox.
So Ive been trying out
using the Match EQ in this way and it seems pretty useful. However, when sliding the apply
slider to a minus percentage you not only attenuate the frequencies that are present in
the channel the Match EQ it is side chained to, you also increase the frequencies that
aren't prominent in this same channel. So for example you might end up with a large
frequency increase above 5K... and perhaps below 100Hz - so you then have to add another
channel EQ to take these frequencies out.
Is there any way round this?
Obviously you cant copy and paste to a channel EQ, and I read that manually copying the
frequencies over to a channel EQ won't work in quite the same way...
