Peace is a graphical user interface for Equalizer APO http://sourceforge.net/projects/equalizerapo by Jonas Thedering (version 0.9.1 or higher).
Your equalizer configuration (audio preset) can be saved and activated by 1 click, hotkey or tray.
Almost all suggested features in the reviews are implemented!

Already easy to use, this interface for EqualizerAPO is now extremely powerful after the 22.214.171.124 release which adds support for custom commands in your profiles. I use RoomEQ Wizard to perform room correction for my speakers, then store these filters in a room_EQ.txt file. In the new 126.96.36.199 command dialogue I tell Peace to "Include room_EQ.txt" which takes place BEFORE Peace's own EQ. This gives me an analytically flat starting point to then begin tweaking to taste using Peace's EQ. This also lets me create a speaker profile which automatically loads in my room_EQ corrections, and a separate headphone profile which does not. I can quickly switch between profiles from the tray icon or a keyboard shortcut. Peace was good before, but now it's so much more powerful.
effing brilliant! I'm not sure why I didn't search for this earlier in my life, but it has everything I need to fiddle with my setup as much as I want. Thank you, Both of you
Thank you so much for this; I've been looking for so long for something like it! Here are a few features that would be nice (I think) : - An option to make the application minimize to the tray icon list when we close it; - Make it possible to assign keyboard shortcuts to presets for easy switching; - An option to make the application automatically run on Windows startup (although, I guess that's already possible to do manually) thanks!
Very nice tool. However default equalizer settings are not flat: if all sliders are brought down 10db, and preamp up 10 db, there is audible effect. My suggestion: use octave frequencies (e.g. each next freq is double of previous): 16 32 63 125 250 500 1000 2000 4000 8000 16000 and Q=1.41 that matches octave width. For other freq distribution (e.g. 1/3 of octave for more accuracy), Q factor should match table in this page www sengpielaudio com/calculator-bandwidth.htm (in this case Q=4.32). To know what freq does what, this is an interesting table www independentrecording net/irn/resources/freqchart/main_display.htm. You can get also 1/3 oct freq progression from the pic. Overlapping info from this table to Peace tool, could make it AWESOME....
