The next thing I'm going to do, is I'm going to EQ a vocal. Now when we EQ vocals, it's kind of like different than everything else because vocals are very, they're very different. Everybody has different vocal, and it's really hard to know what to do with it. It's really about trying to choose something and try to obtain that. So I have this right here, it's a sample of a vocal. What I'm going to do is I'm going to turn on my analyzer and just look at what I've got here. Now looking at it I can see that, because some of the main points are right here, it's mixed pretty well though, to the point where it's like it's pretty even the entire thing. What I can do though is I...when making these types of, when EQing vocals, it's always good to do cuts. Do lower cuts as the bass. If you're cutting bass you always want to do lower skinny cuts. Whenever you're boosting any types of highs, you always want to do a more wider natural more cut. You know what I'm saying? It's always like, you always want to cut something just to get rid of something, so you almost want to search and destroy and find those frequencies that are irritating by boosting them first. You know what I'm saying? So you want to boost the frequency to find it. Once you find that frequency what happens is you want to bring it all the way down and eliminate that frequency and then bring in the bandwidth.
