High Pass Everything! – Are You Making This Common Producer Mistake?

As a kid I used to make this mistake all the time. Someone told me I should be doing this. As I got older I started to wonder why and stopped. I would occasionally still do it and still might if needed to this day, but only if needed.

If you understand how equalizers work then it begs the question about phase issues with high passing everything in your mix.

Years ago I stumbled upon another YouTube video by White Sea Studio that talks about the same thing and he couldn’t be so correct. I figured I’d put this to the test and see if today’s technology still has this issue. See my opinion and results in the video!
