Surgical EQ on a vocal track- how to use notch eq to correct proximity effect

Justin from YouTube was having trouble getting a vocal EQ’d.  He used a High Pass filter on the vocal, but he said that it thinned out the vocal too much.

Justin sent me a sample of the vocal so that I could assess what the problem was.  What we discovered was that he recorded the vocal too close to the microphone and the track had a bump at around 200hz.  I’ll show you exactly what I did to fix it.

If there’s a question that I can answer for you, please leave a comment below and I’ll try to coach you through it.

To your success,
