Ready To Leave (EQ matching + distillation)

Post by lll »

Revisited this; had used FabFilter Q3 EQ matching (because let's face it, no way in hell is anyone going to get real close with Ronni's album tone just using their ears with an EQ; believe me, I've tried countless times).

It was close; this 1st attempt.

But, I used that EQ match (24 EQ points) as a template, and simplified it somewhat (built out my own EQ with points). It sounds even closer.

Tweaked the drums and bass a little too. Of course this is just a test, so not a full-on all-tracks tune test



Original tune:

In some ways, that tone sounds similar to Nuno Bettencourt's core tone over the years.

Very sculpted.

Sounds like you nailed it :!:

Minus just a little warmth (I'd say low mids, although I haven't used my Audio-Technica ATH-R70x cans to listen and pinpoint yet).

Ronni's tone has an unusual bump in the low end with the peak apparently at 30Hz :!: . Usually this frequency is cut off with the hi-pass on the guitar.

Once again proving "if it sounds good, it is good"... even though it goes against the so-called "standards".

BTW this tone is tough to get close because AFAIK there is zero info on the studio except the name of the studio it was recorded at (over in Viking-land).

So, have no idea what studio equipment they used (except the obvious micropitch Eventide-ish sheen on top)... let alone what EQ, console or otherwise...
