Making a Directional EQ in Ableton

A directional EQ is an amazing tool. It allows you to place certain frequencies in specific areas of stereo space. There are plug-ins out there that do this but there is no need for paying extra cash for something you can do with just Ableton's live devices.

Now, mind you, this is not perfect and can create some resonance if used excessively. So, be cautious and use sparingly. Less is more in this case.
