My Yamaha mt-100II has a simple 5 band eq (one for left and one for right). I usually bypass the eq, but want to use it.
I'm picking all your lovely brains right now for knowledge on eq curves. Anything will help. Help me. Please. :)

it's about time some1 replied to this post! some really common basic ones can be found in programs like itunes where if you click on the EQ button you can then select a preset and it shows what it looks like on it's virtual eq - i guess you can use that as inspiration.

Nailing eq is why recording engineers get to charge so much. There are general guidelines you can find on the net but there are so many variables (type of recording device, effects used, instrument being q'd, style of play, etc, etc, etc) that eqing for yourself has to really be to your taste. I usually worry more about qing the whole mix rather than individual tracks. Eric will come in and tell me I'm an idiot but that's why I can't charge anything.
