Hi. I just signed up today to join this forum and i have a quick question. Someone kinda already asked about this, but i want my own PERSONALIZED answer... i have a cheap atus mixer.. used for DJing, but works great for my setup. It has a built in mixer, seperate mixer for left and right channels... I play music kinda like korn, using my PODs EQ and my mixers EQ together to get a "fatter" sound. How should i have my mixers EQ setup to get a nice rich strong sound? any help would be great... Thanks

Ummmm, what exactly would make your PERSONALIZED answer for your fatter sound any different from the other person that asked? Fatter sound is fatter sound isn't it?

Fat sound comes from the mids and lows, and there is a decent article in the recording tips regarding EQ frequencies and which ones help and hurt what instruments and where...I suggest you read that.

You can give your sound some interesting texture by EQing your left and right channels just slightly differently as well. Mids and lows also tend to muddy up an otherwise good, silky distortion, so you have to use it in moderation.

As far as the mixer setting's go. I would suggest you leave them flat. And once you have the track's recorded then you can go tweak the daylight's out of them is your recording app.
