I hope its ok to post tips here. This community has helped me a lot so I thought I would give back a little. This tip is a little bit labor intensive, but it works quite well. 1) add an eq to the track you want dynamically eq'ed. We will call this the main track. 2) Create an audio channel for each band you want to control: Place an audio receiver and an EQ or filter with steep HP and LP filters after the receiver. These tracks will be the control tracks. 3) set the receiver to receive from the main track before the EQ plugin you wish to control. 4) set the HP and LP filters on each track to bracket the frequency you wish to control. ( example: Lets say you have a bass that has a resonant peak on some notes at 120Hz. Use the HP and LP filters on a control track to bracket 120Hz. I used Fabfilter with pretty steep slopes set around 30Hz either side of 120Hz.) 5) Add an Audio Side-chain modulator to the EQ you want to control on the main track. set the audio side-chain device input to the output of the EQ on the control track. 6) Assign the audio side-chain modulator routing button to the gain of the EQ band with negative values. 7) adjust the amount of gain as well as the attack and release times to taste. 8) Rinse and repeat for each band you want to dynamically control. It is a lot of steps, but being able to use any EQ is rather nice. It is also a decent work around for anyone that does not own a dynamic eq. Enjoy and hope it helps.
