So I'm using Chris Brown's Deuces instrumental for a song I'm remixing. I've recorded my verse and overdubs. Now I want to clean the vocals up. I've heard many say do compression first, and many have told me to EQ first. Which one do I do first? Now onto EQing. I know that whatever frequency ranges my vocals are hitting I am supposed to lower that freq range in the instrumental/beat so that my vocals have a carved out pathway to comfortably lay. Right now I can hear the clashing in that range because I haven't done so. The thing is I don't know which range my vocals are hitting. How can I tell? I don't see any moving graphs for the freq ranges in Cubase 4LE EQ mixer. Cubase 4LE has a 4 band EQ, I'm very new to learning how to mix/master but I think that means there are 4 points/areas that I can cut or boost, am I correct? Can someone help me find out where to lower the frequencies in the beat because I don't know how to find which freq range my vocals are laying at.
