Avoiding A Muddy Mix
In an informative article from landr.com, we learn some tips in preventing a muddy mix. It’s easy for frequencies to build up in the low-mid of our tracks, typically in the 200-600 Hz frequency range. There’s no doubt that these frequencies, in excess, can absolutely destroy your mix.
One tip that we found to be most helpful is with respect to subtractive EQ. Certain frequencies in the lower mid range can easily be carved out with a narrow Q. However, it’s important not to over-do it. Many of these frequencies are important to the body of your track.
