When tracking acoustic guitar, I noticed that certain notes stood out as unusually boomy in the mix. A little study revealed that it was probably the standing waves caused by slightly less than 8 ft ceilings (and harmonics above that).

Now, I know that the elite acousticians will say "always fix the room, don't depend on fixing it in the mix", but as a practical matter, I was able to set a parameteric equalizer to focus narrowly on the problem frequencies and pull them down just enough to where it sounded natural.

Negative effects ? I really didn't notice any. Maybe the "phase errors" would show up in a big mix. I don't know.
