Equalization (EQ) is a process of adjusting or balancing different frequency components of an audio wave. It involves boosting or damping the amplitude of a particular frequency or frequency range to get the desired tonality.
Compression is a process of reducing the dynamic range of audio by making the louder part of the audio signal sound quieter and making quieter parts of the signal sound louder.
Normalization is a process of adding gain to audio for bringing the amplitude to a target level. Unlike Compression, in Normalization a constant gain is applied throughout the entire audio and it doesn't affect the dynamics of the audio.

I need help with an interview on the phone. I'm new to all this, so how can I equalize the tone between my voice on a good microphone and the other voice on the telephone. I have them separated, but what do I do to make his voice sound less muffled?
