EDIT: Well I guess it does if your remuxing the track and saving it
Lolls yes I understand that it EQs my sub channel only. So today I finally tried BEQ using TRON. I have five words the explain the experience I had using BEQ
Loved it. Here is the thing. BEQ is answering so many of my questions I had and also making me realized what I was missing. Currently, I'm running my subs 8dB Hot and that's plenty for movies like Tron/San Andreas .... for MB and on some occasion for Low frequency shakes. But when I really wanted to get that Shake, I had to increase sub trim to like 12-14dB. The issue was that with that increase, I was increase the whole Bass FR. I use a house curve as following
and I really like how it sounds. But when boosted +6dB, 50 goes to 14dB and 100 to 11dB. With that, I liked the TR (loved it). Watching Tron was awesome. But then later when I watched other movies, this 50-100Hz boost didn't sound as good and was more like boomier. I couldn't understand why it'd sound great for TRON but not for others until now.
What I really like about this BEQ thread is that it shows Movie FR before/after. So I can clearly see what we are missing and boosting. In my case, I was boosting the whole FR but BEQ only focuses on what's missing in LF. With it, I got both
. Mid-Bass sounds great and I get the TR I was looking for. Finnaallyyyyyy YESSSS
Long story short, BEQ is just simply awesome and so very addicting. I still think that there is so much more to learn but the result is so very much worth it
After applying BEQ for Tron, it was just so very awesome. Loved it totally even though I don't have good gain below 15Hz and cancellation at 17Hz. But I don't believe that FR tells the whole story. FR shows that I have cancellation at 17Hz but when I play Edge of Tomorrow starting scene without any BEQ, it still shakes my room like crazy
. Could be the particle velocity. I don't know but if that scene is specifically targeting 17Hz then it shouldn't have done much but it did a lot
