Matching EQ is gives one the ability to equalize a mix based on the frequency response of another mix. So what does that mean? Let’s say you have recorded a R&B song and your Mixing Engineer sent you the first mix. To compare, you check out Mary J Blige’s new single “Thick of It” and you realize you would love your music to sound similar to “Thick of It”. Using Matching EQ will give you the results you are looking for. There are however, some caveats to Matching EQ.

On izotope’s Matching EQ there is a button titled capture. Capture is similar to taking a screenshot on your smart phone. Here is how you will use the capture button.
