Equalizing a vocal track can be very tricky. Sometimes it seems to sound like it was stuck on later, and doesn't flow with the rest of the track. Below are the five frequency ranges you can start with when you are in trouble and need to figure out how to equalize it so it sits with the song. It goes without saying that no amount of EQ'ing is going to fix a badly recorded vocal. So be sure to have a clean and well recorded vocal before you start mixing it.

( Or, how to NOT smash it to hell ! ) Update – I wrote this post a few years ago now, and the TT meter is no longer the only kid on the block – although it’s still a great choice. To see a new video round-up of some currently available dynamic range meters, click here .
This really helped me out when i first started. Some History Dating as far back as the 1930's, the equalizer is the oldest and probably the most extensively used signal processing device available to the recording or sound reinforcement engineer. Today there are many types of equalizers available, and these vary greatly in sophistication, from the simple bass and treble tone control of the fifties to advanced equipment like the modern multi-band graphic equalizer and the more complex parametric types.
Please Note - The values below are merely guides, each mix is unique and individual so experimentation is advised. Low Bass: anything less than 50Hz This range is often known as the sub bass and is most commonly taken up by the lowest part of the kick drum and bass guitar, although at these frequencies it's almost impossible to determine any pitch. Sub bass is one of the reasons why 12" vinyl became available: low frequencies require wider grooves than high frequencies - without rolling off everything below 50Hz you couldn't fit a full track onto a 7" vinyl record.
