Audio EQ and/or compressor only on one audio clip?

I'm trying to be able to adjust the audio of a single clip with an equalizer, but the only way I've been able to do that is by putting I guess an envelope on an entire audio track with an enormous amount of equalizer keyframes that also adjusts everything else in the track. I just wanna be able to adjust the exact audio of a single clip, sort of like how you just drag any Video FX on a clip and it only adjusts that one clip. I have Vegas 14 also

You can add EQ effx to an individual audio event the same as you add effx to a video event. Click on the EFFX icon on the right end of the audio event.

Dang that'd be tough if I needed to do it to 50 different clips but I may try that. One other thing is that when using the EQ I was listening to the clip and adjusting a 4 band EQ up and down to see what sounded best, and it created what looked like 60 key frames on one small clip, like it's creating all of these key frames instead of just maintaining one level. Is there any way past this?

You can also get to it by right clicking on the clip. Once effects are applied, you can copy that clip, then select the other events you want to apply those effects to, and select "paste event attributes".

You mentioned "individual clip" in your original question. Put whatever events need an EQ on the same track and EQ that track. If you need a different EQ for other events, then put them on another track.

You can also edit and/or process the audio event and work on it with your favorite audio editor... Sound Forge for instance.
Right-click the audio event and select "Open with Audio Editor" .. or .. "Open Copy with Audio Editor" which creates a new "take" (copy) of the event. The audio editor application must be installed on your PC though.
