    Would someone explain "notch" EQ settings and their application for me?

    Thanks much.

    A Notch filter is for finding a problematic Freq. like a hum
    or noise from a fan etc...

    Notch filters have a very narrow bandwidth, they are usually sweepable and in many cases cut only.

    I had also asked earlier about eleminating string noise from a recording. Would it work in that application? Just move the "notch" to the narrow range of problem frequencies?

    Thanks Shailat,

    It should work also.
    Just search for the specific Freq., (using a parametric EQ) that is the problem by Boosting the bands, and then search through untill you hit it ( you'll hear the problem stand out ).
    Then go to your notch and cut that specific freq.

    Another usefull trick is to use a De esser. Do you have one?
