EQ and “frequencies”

Regarding EQ and “frequencies”, the important thing to remember is that EQ is relative. That means that the EQ you apply depends entirely on the sound you’re working with. For example, there’s a lot of character in vocals at around 2.5kHz – but how much you scoop or boost will depend on the sound you’re starting with, and the mix you’re working with. You might also find that 1.5kHz or 3.5kHz is more effective for what you’re doing.

I might cop some flack here, but there’s no substitute for using (and training) your ears. Grab an EQ and experiment on your sound. try boosting or scooping at different frequencies (one band at a time!), and listen to how it changes the quality of the sound and how it changes the way it fits in the mix.
