EQ Frequency Chart For Electronic Music

When talking about well balanced mix, each instrument should have it’s own ‘space’ in the frequency range. That’s one of the key factors for achieving a professional sounding mix.

But how do you know where exactly in the frequency spectrum each instrument should reside – especially in electronic music?

Future Music has created a handy EQ frequency chart which should give you a rough idea about the frequency ranges. Even though the equalizing settings always depends on the sounds/melodies you’re using (and your ears), this chart might help you get started.

Nice chart! It definitely varies per style, as a lot of drum and bass kicks go right down to the sub bass range, and you sidechain to keep it from getting muddy, and a whole lot of DnB snares go down to 300 hz. But it is a nice chart, especially about the basses. Plus the bar across the bottom saying weight and air and such is nice. If an element needs more weight, the chart says to boost in the lower frequencies.

Nice find, thanks!

I would cut the blue rather than boost the white!

Stupid question for anyone to answer….But is the best way to tell what frequency a instrument is in by using the Parametric EQ 2?
