Equalizer APO is a parametric / graphic equalizer for Windows. It is implemented
as an Audio Processing Object (APO) for the system effect infrastructure
introduced with Windows Vista.

- virtually unlimited number of filters
- works on any number of channels
- very low latency, which makes it suited for interactive applications
- low CPU usage
- modular graphical user interface
- VST plugin support
- integrates into Voicemeeter (http://www.voicemeeter.com/)

- Windows Vista or later (currently only Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 have been tested)
- the application must not bypass the system effect infrastructure
(APIs like ASIO or WASAPI exclusive mode can not be used)

Equalizer APO is best used in conjunction with Room EQ Wizard (http://www.roomeqwizard.com/), because it can read its filter text file format.

Please have a look at the Wiki (http://sourceforge.net/p/equalizerapo/wiki/) for instructions on installation and configuration.

    I also dig this software BUT i have experienced issues with this working with Realtek drivers. Either my sound stops working, and i need to reinstall my sound drivers, and then i need to reinstall Equalizer APO, so for me it is a 5 out of 10 rating. Also the gui crashes for me when i run it in windows 7 64 bit BUT it is fine in windows 32 bit, i have tried different old and new versions.

    hallo daar, ik draai windows 7 x64 met realtek high audio geluidskaart en ik heb een probleem, de EqualizerAPO64-0.9.2 sloopt de system effecten van de geluidskaart drivers, ik heb alles geprobeerd, eerst de EqualizerAPO64-0.9.2 installeren en daarna de laatste realtek drivers en tevens andersom maar krijg EqualizerAPO64-0.9.2 niet aan de praat. dat wil zeggen de EqualizerAPO64-0.9.2 werkt wel maar dan ben ik de systeem effecten kwijt, doe ik het andersom werken de system effecten wel maar niet de EqualizerAPO64-0.9.2, hebben jullie een oplossing voor dit probleem? mijn email is jwvdbosch@ziggo.nl bij voorbaat dank, nog 1 ding ik heb ook een x86 32 bit machine met windows vista waar EqualizerAPO64-0.9.2 gewoon correct werkt, maar wat raar is is als je naar de registry key van EqualizerAPO surft staan daar achter de child apo's de waarden !key en !value wat bij mijn windiws 7 x64 machine niet het geval is, wat is hier het verschil?
