Default EQing X-stick and Snare

Usually automate eq or per-item FX for a track that has drummer switching between X-stick and Snare, but mixed a song that had X-stick and a lot of snare fills, too much work to treat each one, so...
I inserted ReaEq and clicked on parameter/modulation/band#2/audio control signal/baseline value in the middle, audio track 1&2, fast attack, negative direction, and pulled down band #2 in the 400-500 hz area. Adjusted threshold and presto! X-stick is nice and full (untouched) and every time the snare hits, the mids are scooped and cleans up that boxy mid-range-y snare sound.
Huge time-saver, and it sounds really good!
