Mix Buddy   EQ Blueprints

Learn to shape the sound of instruments

Improving the sound of an instrument in your mix is but a tap away with Mix Buddy on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. As the name suggests an EQ Blueprint is an overview of the important frequencies that determine the sound of an instrument. Mix Buddy comes packed with EQ Blueprints for many different instruments.

Every EQ Blueprint shows you the important frequencies on a visual frequency spectrum by means of Droplets. Each Droplet represents a specific frequency or frequency range of the instrument and explains what effect the frequency has on the sound of the instrument.

The best part is that if you use Mix Buddy often enough you will start to learn the important frequencies by heart and grow a personal preference for specific adjustments. That’s the moment you start developing your own sound.
