Komplete 201: Komplete's Mixing Plugins

In this short video from the course Komplete 201: Komplete's Mixing Plugins, Olav loads up the Solid EQ onto a fat house beat and proceeds to show you how to use its controls to shape and sculpt the sound with the four bands, switching between the G and E series models. 

Experimenting with frequencies, Olav is able to blend the elements of the beat together, shaping the kick so that it complements the rest of the loop. He also tries different Q settings to show how the width of an EQ band can affect its behaviour. It's not just beats either - this EQ is great when used on any sound source! Check out the rest of the videos in the course for a comprehensive guide to all the mix plugins that come with Komplete.
