alright, so you want a 3 BAND DJ EQ with EQ Four?Spaiz wrote:Adam! Please explain, what exact values on freq and Q should we choose?AdamJay wrote:just turn off 1 of the mid bands and adjust the other mid band so that it occupies the mids and give all 3 remaining bands a wider "Q"Patch wrote:How do yuo set up EQ4 to act like EQ3??? I'm still using Live 2, and haven't even got EQ3, but I cannot get EQ4 to behave like the EQ control on a DJ mixer. Does anyone have settings on EQ4 to get a nice, DJ style sound on the EQ adjustments?
now, use the Gain controls of those 3 remaining bands as your 3 band EQ
use bands 1,2,3 - disable 4
band 1 = 100hz
band 2 = 1 khz
band 3 = 10khz
put the same Q amount of 0.36 on each band
now assign the GAINs of bands 1,2,3 to your midi knobs (such as UC33)
and make sure the 3 bands used the Parametric frequency setting (not the shelf or pass setting)
me thinks the issue with alot of people not using EQ Four is because people just dont understand how to use it.
EQ Three seems more visually logic to them, so they naturally use it instead.
thatts too bad, i consider EQ Four to be the most powerful and versatile effect in Live. has been doing the job for me since version 1.5
