In this free video tutorial brought to you in with the support of Plugin Alliance, Pro Tools Expert team member Julian Rodgers demonstrates the Auto Listen features of the Hybrid V2 EQ from Brainworx.
Auto Listen To The Parameter Being Adjusted
bx_hybrid V2 is an 11 band equaliser and as such is up to the most demanding EQ tasks but good EQ is all about the decisions being made and to help quickly identify the frequencies to be addressed bx_hybrid uses the auto listen features found in some of the other bx equalisers such as the Brainworx bx_digital V3.
When adjusting parameters, auto listen temporarily solos the band being adjusted in the following ways:
- f - Introduces a narrow, momentary boost to solo the frequency at which the control is currently set.
- Q - Solos the band at the current Q setting with either a +12dB boost if the band's gain control is currently above unity gain, or -12dB if the gain is below unity.
- G - Bypasses all the other bands in the plug-in, playing a flat signal apart from the current gain setting on the band being adjusted.
Choose The Auto Mode To Suit You
Using a drum loop Julian shows how to use these auto features to quickly fix a ring on the snare. Using the auto mode drop-down it is possible to use only the auto features you wish from just one to all three.
