'lowering notes by decibel and hertz'
Seems the EQ and compressor do not discriminate when reducing and lately realizing only certain parts of a song have a frequency too loud (I want to squash!) -- I'm thinking like a gate type EQ or compressor that will only lower parts louder then what it's set at. For example parts of song too loud at 200 hertz but not wanting to lower the 200 hertz at other parts not too loud as it seems the EQ and compressor does. I will be trying some other compressor and EQ plugins asap but at this point I'm still just using the default Audacity ones. And having to meticulously edit per spot by ear and plot spectrum, then EQ those wild parts down. Not really even needing compressor when EQ is precise it seems..
So is there.. an EQ or compressor with such capability and what is the terminology used describing such and such features if they exist? thanks.
Assuming an EQ when set at say -3 dB at 200 hertz goes through and lowers all 200 hertz -3. When what I am really wanting is say lowering all 200 hertz above say -18 dB down to -18 dB, as an example.
UPDATE: I've switched sites around and at this time have a new mostly proprietary method of things (previous voided to Apr.19 2017). If you like my new sound and want to know more about my editing techniques feel free to ask,
