AS you know too much boosting can cause clipping and/or distortion ...
I am aware of this practice, the lowering of some frequencies instead of just boosting, but frankly I have never needed to do so. I realize that yes, boosting too far can cause distortion, but it is not something that I have ever experienced.
Of course, that could be due to my use of Replaygaining down to 89db.....
