MORE SIDECHAIN FUN: DYNAMIC EQUALIZATION

BY ROBERT DENNIS

An instrument's tone is determined by how loud the fundamental frequency is compared to the harmonic frequencies put out by that instrument.  Equalization causes certain frequencies to be louder (or softer) than other frequencies present in the signal.   Equalization will therefore change the tone of the instrument.  Equalization used to do desirable things (like increase the "attack" of an instrument) can therefore have hugely undesirable side effects (like making the instrument harsh).
