The scrub tool is simply a curser selection that allows you to drag it over the audio track to listen to just a small section of the audio. It can also be done with a jog wheel if you have a controller that is scrub enabled.

A parametric EQ is a more accurate type of EQ that allows you to be much more selective on where and how much of a certain frequency you correct.

You can use a wide band or Q as it is referred to or narrow it down to a very small portion of the frequency you wish to adjust. It is much more accurate then a normal graphic EQ.

Here is an article on using a parametric effectively in a mix. It will give you a good idea of what it can do.

Thanks. The users manuel of my Fostex recorder assumes I know all of this. Make it kind of difficult to understand what they are trying to tell me.

OK, on the Tascam digital recorder the scrub point will be were you set the curser to move the jog wheel when you want to scrub as I stated above. It should be basically a flashing line or icon of some sort. Maybe an arrow that will show in the track view.
