This tutorial considers the use of a graphic equalizer, hardware or plug-in, in the music recording studio. In live sound, additional issues apply.
With a modern plug-in parametric equalizer it is possible to achieve almost any EQ curve that is required. It is also easy and quick to set. So the question is why would you choose to use a graphic equalizer in the digital audio workstation environment?
Partly the reason is very subjective, similar to the way in which a guitarist would choose which of his or her guitars to play on a particular song. It's more of an instinctive feeling than a considered thought.
But also there are EQ curves to which the graphic equalizer seems naturally more suited than the parametric.
Here we will consider some of the options.
