SERIOUSLY awesome EQ CHART!!!

so in search for more info on mixing and recording i stumbled on this chart.
its got almost EVERY instruments frequency range!!! it also tells you what
frequency section of each instrument does ie. drums (attack/fullness) if you hover over them..
another example it tells you where the "snap, crack, ring, and crisp" frequencies lay on a snare
some real useful info in here. at least for n00bs like me.

I dont know about you but im bookmarking this!

Dumb question but midi/ synth instruments will be on the same frequencies?

Whoever made that chart doesn't know what ERGs are. Still pretty cool!

Generally, a lot are subject to pre-processing and EQ so there is variation. Also depends on the quality of them. A free french horn synth wlll not sit the same as a professional sample from EWQL or similar higher end product, or thats the case with my experience.

We all have hearing damage so out ears EQ everything differently.

I just compare stuff to old Pink Floyd. Because those are the best quality recordings I can think of.

haha. it looks like good info for where to lo/hi pass so the instruments are in the right spots in a mix. maybe not, im gonna give it a whirl with my next recordings, especially the drum parts with superior. i hate the stick sound of cymbals, this tells you where thats located

No... but usually problem areas are quite apparent, and also room, recording and mix specific.

i have a hard time finding certain "parts" of an instrument. ie the clank of a cymbal. may just be my lack of proper monitors, but i believe with time they would be easier to find.

I might be missing something since i basically trial & error'd my way through learning to mix, but is this chart saying to just cut off the eq's where the line stops? I am new to pin pointing frequencies, ive always done everything by ear.

Can someone explain this to me with for instance, the average metal kick? Id love to use this chart but i guess im a noob with technicality haha

it looks like the kick goes from 45/50hz to 8khz. ive heard people say before cut off the kick below 45hz when i was looking for info. so im assuming it would be safe to lo/hi pass 45-8kz ive been rolling off around 50 for a while before i found this. i dont think theres too much usuable frequencies below 40hz... but im a noob too, and im sure it depends on the mix, and i bet king aenarion has something to about it

looks like guitar sit just above the kick and bass guitar sicks just below it. it looks like decent reference for placement in a mix, im sure this wouldnt work for everything though. probably just a starting point.

So just flat line the EQ where the bars are aside from where it says "add more/less for punchiness" etc? I think i got it now

roll off slope or whatever i wouldnt just it at 45hz might not make much difference, i always try and do fast smooth roll offs if i can.
