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
- Windows Vista or later (currently only Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 have been tested)
- Sound card driver must support APOs (this includes most onboard sound drivers)
- 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.hometheatershack.com/roomeq/), 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.
Opened in Editor tool "config.txt". Now no sound. Program just crashes on startup. Can't be used anymore.
Registered to just let you know how great this software is. I own a pair of half decent headphones I picked up from GAME (Razer Kraken USB with mic), they're really quite bass heavy and a lot of detail in the high end is fogged by it, all I needed to do was install this and boost the highs and lower the bass frequencies and they now sound like a well balanced pair of headphones. Wasn't really looking for anymore than this, excellent and simple.
Just what I was looking for. Excellent work.
This product makes nearly every speaker and microphone sound absolutely incredible. God bless these creators! I just wish there was a second drop down box to have settings for headphones and settings for your microphone so that they run at the same time without having to use the text editor. Other than that this thing is flawless.
I use it on bluetooth headphones but when you can't connect the damn things for whatever reason, you have no other choice but to un-pair/re-pair them, open up Configuration, tick the headphones and reboot, every single time. Such a stupid design.
