17 Dec Using the New Ozone 7 Advanced Vintage EQ
I think of EQs like paint brushes: each one has its own texture and specialty, and learning which one to use when is part of the art of mixing.
Inspired by the richness, musicality, and color of Pultec equalizers, the Vintage EQ in Ozone 7 Advanced lets you brighten, smooth out heavy low end, and add body to your digital recordings. With discrete frequency value selections, you can bring a musical focus to your EQ approach. Use the boost and cut controls separately – but at the same time! – for a low-shelf that boosts first, then cuts, and then levels out to smoothly avoid making your mix sound “boomy.” Its a unique, unintentional functionality that users of Pultec EQ’s have enjoyed for years. Now you can too.
And its not just for the master bus! In this video, Lead Trainer Jake Perrine walks you through using the Vintage EQ in Ozone 7 Advanced on a hip-hop sample.
