    Putting a channel EQ on outs 1-2 channel?
    I've been enjoying revisiting Steve H's Mastering in Logic tutorial. I'm curious to know what is a desired frequency contour line I should hope to have on my final mixes? I know this is a very subjective question with different answers depending on the style of the song etc... I'd just like to be able to put a channel EQ on my output channel, turn on the analyzer and have an idea of how it "should" look. eg maybe a club track would look lopsided with more energy in the low end where the kick and bass are etc.. Sorry if this is vague. I just don't know what the overall eq print of my mixes means because I don't know what is desired in terms of where the strongest frequencies are etc.. thanks for any help!

    Re: Putting a channel EQ on outs 1...
    As you say, it's difficult to give generic advice as it really depends on the style of music and what sound you as a producer wish to achieve (as well as very much down to how you've mixed the tracks!) But, the best advice I can offer is to import a couple of similar style songs into your project - from CD... Choose a commercial track which is similar / identical to the style of your project. Solo the commercial track & slap a Channel EQ on the Output 1-2 channel and compare and contrast. btw, do you know about the Match EQ plugin? ;-) R
