Flash Card Tips and Tricks

Thought maybe it was a good idea to start a thread on very simple tips and tricks that can be easily implemented, are quick and can be understood by anybody.Hopefully it works out…could be good…lets see.
Maybe put the tip in bold or something so anybody can quickly scan the thread.

I have a new rule i just started implementing and it seems to work really well.
Whenever i EQ something i will make a point to notch a frequency out as well,could be a large notch could be a tiny notch could be a lot of gain could be very little.The point is,

Whenever i EQ i will ALWAYS notch.

In the end, over multiple tracks and hundreds of samples,this rule makes a huge difference.
