    Once again, a great DVD Masterclass set from David Wills. I am a musician and home recording enthusiast. This set goes into all the details about EQ, types of EQ, how to apply it, (and perhaps when not to), routing, and a comprehensive treatment of EQ in action for all instruments, and vocals. As always, David’s enthusiasm and skill as a teacher really come through. I have yet to see any comparable product on the market with this type of quality instruction. You can see the effort he puts in here. Incredible value! I own several of David’s DVDs: R8/R24, Ultimate Home Rec, and Comp/Lim/Gates sets. This EQ set can certainly stand on its own as EQ instruction. But also, it is the perfect complement to the UHR, and Compression sets. All these sets are great. Honestly, I’d give them 10 stars if I could.

    In this EQ set David takes many different EQs from a variety of DAWs and explains their use through practical examples. He highlights not only the EQ of individual tracks, but also EQ across groups, and also, how the EQ of a track will sit in a mix with respect to the other tracks. Spectrum analyzer, and just using your ears…I mean, there is just too much to write down here. He has some samples of the DVDs posted, and check out the masterclass contents. Attend a webinar.

    This great thing about this premium training is that it is not about EQ in just “this hardware”, or in “that DAW”. He’s teaching the theory and application on the subject in general, using various sources. So you’re getting training on EQ in general and why a setting is used. So you can then go to any DAW or other plugin, or EQ settings in hardware recorders and have a greater understanding what you want to filter, and where some sheen might be applied, etc. I tend to watch these many times. They are packed with information. See if you do not agree. David, great job!

    I was really excited when I saw that he had put out a training on EQ. In all my years as a sound tech, mixing and home recordist , the area that has always been the most frustrating and challenging is the area of EQ.

    .I purchased the masterclass-EQ set a couple of months ago. Having watched the DVD set several times now let me say that I really appreciate David’s simple and clear approach to EQ. I also appreciate that he takes the time to explain the range, how the different instruments and vocals fall in the range of frequency.

    The demonstrations of EQing different instruments and vocals was very helpful to me. I would watch and then go and try it in my DAW . I was really pleased with the results and understanding I have gained from listening and applying.

    I would highly recommend this set to anyone looking to learn and understand EQing. Thank you David for your willingness to share with others what you have learned over the years. Well done!

    In yet another superb presentation, David Wills breaks down the mysteries of EQ, and addresses methods and proper application. Knowing how to properly EQ your instruments, and the final mix, will yield a professional-sounding recording. David Wills guides you each step towards achieving that goal.

  4. 5/5


    I was always decent at EQ, but never good at it. I spent hours and hours online studying, trying to understand it, but I was just not comprehending it. I was overwhelmed by the mere thought of understanding it.

    A friend of mine who had just given me a new Les Paul guitar had mentioned David Wills Masterclass on EQ. My buddy knew I was understanding it and my mixes were stuck and never going to improve. He told me flat out, What do you have to lose? “I told him, $69.95.” He laughed and said, “You’ve already spend around $500 on online classes from other engineers, the books you’ve bought on EQ.” He said, “just get it and I’ll split it with you.” Again I was skeptical, I was thinking to myself, what is this David Wills guy going to teach me that no one else has so far. I didn’t learn it from Fab Dupont, I didn’t learn it from Bobby Owsinski or Groove3 etc. The Gibson Les Paul is a great guitar, but not for me… I’m a Tele guy till I die. I asked my friend if it would be okay to sell the guitar and use that doe to buy all of David Wills Masterclass series and the Home Recording School series… my buddy was delighted and he gave me the green light. I figured this way I have no money invested in this… I had the money, but with all of my past failures in learning I figured this would be another one in a long list.

    At this point I was so frustrated, I stopped recording or even picking up my guitar, because every time I would I would get upset with myself thinking about EQ and compression and how I did not understand it. The funniest thing is I would turn knobs until they sounded good, but what bothered me is, I didn’t know what my turns were actually doing? It bothered me to the core.

    I had got all of the DVDs in the mail and slowly started watching the Masterclass on Compression, limiters and gates. While I watched I was even telling myself there is no way this guy David is going to teach me a thing, because I suck, I cannot get this. After completing the class, and after 3 years of trying I know have learned compression inside and out, thanks to David. Then I got sick for a few months and have been bed-ridden most of the time, so I thought I’d throw on the EQ Masterclass to see if a miracle could happen twice. Even though David, had already taught me compression, I was still not believing he would also be able to teach me EQ… man was I wrong. David took ALL of the overwhelming thoughts out of my head and made it so simple. The best thing that happened is, I am recording again, and playing my guitar and writing music, there are no more barriers mentally… well, maybe, reverb, delays, stereo image and panning… hahaha, but that’s all that’s left for me to really get. I mean we are always learning from kids, adults, grandfathers… but I mean fundamentally. David again, you are a miracle-worker and I thank you from the bottom of my heart, the money I spent on your DVDs was the best investment in my music career. It was not $50,000 in gear, it was $69.95. David you are awesome! Thanks again.

    Please come up with a Masterclass for reverb, delay, stereo image and panning… with mix examples, I will be first in line! I think Compression and EQ is the #1 things people don’t get right, but a close second is, proper use of reverb, delay, stereo image and panning. God bless.
