Adobe Audition Parametric EQ. Sweeping & Cutting Technique.

Step 1:
Reset EQ by selecting Default in presets

Step 2:
Drag any points up (Don’t go all the way up. Play around with height)

Step 3:
Use Q-Width to make it steep.

Step 4:
Sweep left to right listening for harsh sounds.

Step 5:
Cut sounds by pulling straight down.
Usually -4dB is plenty (Subtle goes a long way using EQ)

Step 6:
Repeat this process throughout Podcast.
