Mixing & Mastering Tutorial Pt 2 Mid Side EQ Techniques Izotope
In the second part of this three-part video tutorial series, Daniel Wyatt shares an invaluable tip for mastering: The Mid-Side EQ Technique, also known as The Sum & Difference Technique, which is an amazing technique you can use to adjust the stereo width of tracks and make them wider. Once again, Wyatt is using the Ozone 4 mastering plug-in, but this is a universal mastering technique you can apply using any host application. Daniel Wyatt shows you how to navigate the Parametric EQ section of Ozone, switching between the Side EQ (used for wide-panned stereo information such as synths, pads, percussions, reverb etc. ) and the Mid EQ (used for kick, snare, bass, lead vocals, instruments, etc.) At the end of this tutorial you should have a good grasp of how to utilize The Mid-Side EQ technique, segment frequencies and make the Mid and Side EQs compliment each other – keep the Mids focused with an extra boost for the subs and the Sides gently rolling off lows.
