General EQ tips in Boss Tone Studio
« on: May 19, 2017, 04:40:02 PM »
I'm wondering if anyone has tips regarding the parametric EQ in the Boss Tone Studio?  I tend to leave it on default, but I realise it's quite powerful at shaping your overall sound. Would any have some go to settings they like to use?

The Boss/Roland EQ sections are insanely powerful.
They can take a ho-hum sound and turn it into the sound you have been searching for.
Please take the time to twist each knob and take a mental note to what happens to your sound.
Doing this will give you the ability to dial in sound fixes you need for a sound you are chasing.
Sometimes cutting/lowering rather than boosting a band will get you where you want to be.
When you cut one eq section, the other sections of the sound bands are now louder.
So its not just boost!
One tip, to remove "Fizz" or what all guitar players hate when using distortion, go to the last page of the EQ and turn down the high cut to 6.0kHz.
This is normally rolled off with a 12 inch guitar speaker and why people hate going direct.

I didn't see that thread, but it's a goldmine.  Those PDFs and links are very helpful and explain pretty much everything that I was after.  Many thanks, Elantric.  Best wishes.
