I found his explanation of the process very difficult to comprehend, especially considering that its actually quite easy when you get into it.
I had to read the post many many times just to sift through it all and get to the meat of it.
If I had the time I would love to re-write it in much simpler terms.
none the less, GREAT THREAD!
Here is the absolute bear bones of it
download sine wave generator
download sine wave file and white noise file
downolad and setup elictriq and various vst files that make it work
get elictriq to work - arguably the hardest part of the whole process
sweep through sine wave generator over and over marking down all the parts that are louder than others - this may be long and building sopes, or short peaks -
using electri-q try to compensate for those peaks by removing them
use the sine wave file (so that you can play it in foobar for exaple and implement the eqing that you have done, which you cant do with the sine wave generator) play it over and over to see if you have gotten the peaks flattened.
the idea is to have the whole sweep of the sine sounding the same volume
once in a while play the white noise file and use the eq to fine tune any areas that sound too loud
rememer that all of this eq-ing and judging what is balanced takes lots of practice
dont listen to the sine or white noise for too long or try to do this process for too long or all in one day b/c your ears will get fatigued quickly
viola.. hope that helps
