New perspective.

Thanks for the show. I always tend to change the EQ settings when listening to music, etc. I never really thought about it from the audio engineer's point of view. Specifically the idea of tuning different frequencies out of a recording to change the feel of the recording. Seems like what noise cancelling headphones do but more manual and precise. EQ after the recording is done feels kind of blunt and pointless after hearing what it's really for. I guess that's why they have all those sliders when you see studios on TV and movies. I have much more respect for audio production engineers now.

Maybe on your next show, you can talk about the different ways you could record in a noisy multi-person room as compared to a smaller room with just one or two people.
