Perceptual EQ Labels with Ableton Live

When mixing, sometimes I am distracted by EQ technique, vs. hearing what I am actually doing. I imagine that I will be more facile and fluent in the perceptual impact of the frequency spectrum with more practice.

However, I wanted to experiment with the idea of perceptual EQ settings as a starting point for setting EQ – so I created this simple Ableton Live Rack – which simply maps some macros to selected EQ Eight parameters. I’ve found this to be useful – and am often surprised what the EQ curves look like after a first pass (settings are much more extreme than when I set it visually). I’m sure this can be improved upon in many ways – technique and/or programming!
