It is known that one of the most important tasks in music post-production is equalization. Equalization can be applied in several ways, but one of the main purposes it serves is masking minimization. This is done so that the listener can appreciate the timbral qualities of all instruments within a musical mix. However, the study of masking between the different instruments of a multi-track mix has not received a lot of attention, and a quantitative measure based on perceptual studies has not… CONTINUE READING
