I've been looking up articles on dynamic EQ and it seems to be mostly positive. I'm wondering if there's any downsides if someone were to go crazy with it like in the following workflow:
Let's say someone has a typical rock song with drums, bass, guitars, vocals and each individual track is already eq'd to their liking (but the track hasn't been compared to any other track in the song). If they want the kick to come through with minimal masking, they add a sidechain/dynamic eq to all other instruments who produce frequencies in the range of the kick drum. That way they duck out a bit when the kick drum hits. Then after every track has that, they move on and do the same thing again, but this time with the snare. Then cymbals. Then bass guitar. Then guitars, etc etc..
I'm just wondering when too much is too much and artifacts or pumping or other weird things would start to happen.
