The next step in building the custom DJ EQ we started yesterday is to put the EQ 8 into a Rack, and map the Gain of each band to a Macro, so it looks like this:
(If you’re new to building Racks, take a look at One Knob, Multiple Functions)
The problem with this EQ as it stands is that it has equal amounts of cut and boost, whereas a good DJ mixer can cut much more deeply than it boosts. To fix this, first duplicate the EQ 8:
This will give you two EQs in series. Try turning the Macro knobs and you’ll see that the gains on the new EQ have been mapped automatically.
You now have an EQ with 30dB of cut and boost. That’s great for the cut, but way too much boost. We’ll straighten that out tomorrow.
