Does anyone have some good tips or tools on how to solo specific EQ frequencies in Cubase?
Listening to specific frequencies is a really helpful way to learn whats going on in different areas of your mix or track. The only way I know how to do this is as follows:
(This only works for single tracks or stereo masters)
- Duplicate the track in question
- Flip the phase
- Ensure the volume (and panning) of the two tracks is identical
(At this stage - you should not hear anything, (silence), because the two tracks are out of phase and cancelling each other out perfectly.)
- Now you can bring up an EQ on one of the tracks and boost or cut a specific frequency range to hear just that filter set in solo.
Is there an easier way? Perhaps a plug-in tool or a feature in Cubase?
Can you do on the master bus without duplicating tracks?
Perhaps there is a setup in Control Room that will allow you to do this?
This is a really helpful trick - but I would love to make it easier to access.
